Summer Season - Please note that race start times are now earlier.
Eligibility - Riders must have a valid AusCycling race licence and a HWCC race grading. HWCC Grading lists - http://www.hamiltonwheelers.com/general-info/club-grading-list
D Grade Teams Race - The D grade race will be a Teams Race. A random draw of riders will be done pre-race, dividing teams into 4 or 5 riders. The winner and prime winner are determined by when the 3rd rider of a team crosses the finish line. All prizemoney will be distributed to the winning team and the prime winning team.
Attention M&N Graded riders - Any riders graded as HWCC 'Master and Novices' are asked to nominate for the D Grade Teams Race this week (only). As teams are randomly selected with a spread of abilities, each team will have an equal chance of winning this battle of tactics.
Entries - Entries close 7pm on Saturday evening.
Course - The course is the Nundah Criterium Circuit (1.2km), Hedley Ave Nundah. HWCC restricts races to 60 riders per race at this course.
Gradings - Enter in your current HWCC grade. Provide an explanation if you are applying to enter a different grade and check the start list before your race. HWCC Handicappers' decisions are final.
Registration/Start times - Registration from 6.30am - closes 10 minutes before race starts. Juniors, Vets and M&N Grades need to be ready at 9.15am - actual start times depend on numbers of entries.
Juniors - Juniors may race in senior races if they have a HWCC seniors grading. All juniors U17s and younger must have their gearing rollout checked on the footpath near the clubhouse steps picking up their race number.

you enter, you must -
EntryBoss Entry - Please make sure your current AusCycling licence number is registered with EntryBoss before entering. Do not use a previous licence number. Entries are checked against AusCycling current/financial licence lists. Riders should have their digital licence ready or printed email ready to show if requested.

Gradings - Riders should enter according to their current HWCC grading. Should a rider wish to enter an alternate grade, an explanation should be provided in the comments section of the entry form with appropriate info such as results elsewhere. All entries are provisional until confirmed by the club handicappers.
Grading Confirmation - VERY IMPORTANT - HWCC club handicappers review all provisional entries before they are confirmed. If a rider applies to race in a grade other than their current HWCC grading, they must check the EntryBoss startlist after 7pm on the evening before race day to confirm which grade they will be starting in. Please make yourself familiar with the HWCC EntryBoss entering policy - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IaUU0m95wCTQ_O_bwgmV8YeQHzuNdd4m/view
Women's Races/Prizes - In events where there are no women's separate races, the first unplaced female in each grade is presented with a prize, provided there are 2 to 7 female entries. If 8 or more females enter any grade, there will be a 'race within a race'. Read HWCC Women's racing/prizes policy for an explanation - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1isbZgJ_wuC6b6Jkpw5akyhsJ2IRTv2bX/view?usp=sharing
M&N and Vets Grades - For events that the club doesn't cater for HWCC 'Masters and Novices' and 'Vets' graded riders grades (i.e Twilight Series, Interclubs), these riders may nominate to race in D grade via the EntryBoss entry (subject to club handicapper approval).
Rider Inquiries - If club officials require pre-race information on a rider's licence or grading, every effort will be made to contact them via their EntryBoss registered email address.
Registration/Race Patches - Start registration begins approx 30 minutes before the first race and and closes 10 minutes before each race start time. Riders must wear their race number patches on their right side for criteriums at Nundah and Lakeside. Patches must be worn on the left side for road races, ITTs and reverse direction criteriums. There is a compulsory Commissaire's briefing before each race. Riders who miss this briefing will not be allowed to start.
Prizes - Cash prizes for seniors races are proportional to entry numbers and generally are awarded to the first 3 places. Prizes for juniors will be awarded appropriately.
Podium Presentations - First 4 riders in each grade will be presented at a podium presentation. There will be separate women's podium presentations if there are 3 or more women entered in a grade. Riders/spectators are encouraged to take photos.
Results - HWCC publishes all race results on their website (usually within a day or two) - http://www.hamiltonwheelers.com/
Race Scratchings - If riders find they are unable to race after entering HWCC races, they may 'scratch' themselves up to 5am on normal race days, 3pm for Twilight races and up to 7pm the night before handicap races - the entry fee will be refunded. Click on the 'Scratch' button on the EntryBoss event page. Please note that there is a small cost to the club due to unrecoverable merchant fees, whenever riders' scratch themselves.
Wet-weather Policy - A decision to cancel due to poor weather will be made by the Chief Commissaire with announcements via the club's social pages. Generally, we race in all weather, except heavy rain or if there are sheets of water on the road surface. Any decision on cancellation will be made as early as possible.
All race entry fees will be refunded if races are cancelled.
Race Rules - Racing is conducted under the auspices of AusCycling rules and regulations. Helmets must comply with Australian (ADR) and UCI regulations for on-road races and UCI regulations for off-road races.
