Please see the 4F Twilight Series Rider Guide for all event and technical information - available on the 4Five+ Resources page https://www.4fiveplus.org/resources
The 4F Twilight Series is a team event, with riders in teams of three. Team members can enter any combination of grades A-E (Junior U13 & U11 will accrue points and receive separate recognition for the series.). Participation points from the three team members will go towards the overall total, with additional points awarded to the top 5 finishers in each criterium event. Teams registering a volunteer will also earn points.
Individuals not riding for a team will only be able to enter if there is capacity. Grades limits apply to promote rider safety, and there will be a wait list for each grade if we hit capacity.
There will be a skills sessions for beginners (Round 1 only), a creche, and hopefully food & drink to purchase.
There will be grade podium presentations each round (1st, 2nd, 3rd).
The presentations of the 4F Twilight Series Team major prizes will conclude Round 3:
- Team Prize - teams podium & prizes (1,2,3)
- Rider 45+ - individual podium for riders 45+ (1,2,3)
- Junior Rider U11/13 combined podium (1,2,3)
- Rider of the Series - for showing fairness, determination and spirit
The A&B Grade Chase is a handicap, with B Grade given a head start, and A Grade chasing. C and D Grade will have separate race times. E Grade/U13/U11 will be on course at the same time, but race separately.
