NCC Contour


    NCC has added fixed transponders to our existing numbers. The numbers will be unique to NCC, but the transponders will be shared between the Super Series, NCC and in time AHCC.
  • The transponder you will be issued for the Super Series is the same transponder you *must* bring to NCC events
  • If you are a visiting racer who will only do a race or two with NCC then we will have transponders and numbers you can borrow.
  • If you are a new rider who's just giving it a go - we will have transponders and numbers you can borrow.
  • Riders will still need to sign on

Please ensure your membership number in EntryBoss matches your current AC licence number. Due to the admin burden involved, NCC will no longer place riders with incorrect or incomplete EB accouts on the start list (ie you wont race!)

NCC is always looking for extra hands so we can keep doing things better. Want to get involved - from corner marshalling to something more? Check out our volunteer page

Numbering and transponders - I don't know how it works!!

NCC runs fixed numbers and transponders for all regular riders.

After you have been allocated with a new number/transponder - it is the rider responsibility to make sure there details are updated in our database - and that can be done HERE!. This must be done before Friday before the next race (and preferably at sign on - when you get allocated your transponder/number).

Not sure which number you're meant to have or don't think you have a number? *
If you have raced with NCC in the last two years you will have a fixed number. If you've lost it you will need to buy a new one.
This is not your super series number.
This is not some crusty number you found in the back of your cupboard.
The number should match your grade.

B Grade Red
C Grade Yellow
D Grade Navy
E Grade Light Blue


Something not right? No stress - we can always fix it at sign on!

More Information


Grading is at the discretion of the handicapper, and not at the whim of the rider. Riders who request grade changes through EB without having their preference ok'd by the handicapper will be placed into their existing grade. Handicapping takes in more than rider fitness, but considers skill, ability to contribute positively to the race and appropriateness. The best way to move up a grade is to win. If you can't win your current grade, you probably aren't ready to move up.


Please check what grade you have been placed in by the handicapper via the "View startlist" button prior to the event starting. The handicapper reserves the right to handicap riders as they see fit. It is the responsibility of the rider to review the published start list. Please enter relevant information for the handicapper when you nominate. The earlier you nominate, the earlier you get handicapped. Changing of grades on the day is not permitted. Only the Handicapper or the Chief Commissaire may regrade a rider on the day.
Please do not request grade changes to our volunteers on the Sign-on desk

You can contact the NCC Handicapper Peter Varricchio on 0411 118 262. Please be courteous and understanding. Any inappropriate behaviour will result in sanctions.

New Riders

Are you new to racing? Then why not try the AusCycling Australia's 4 week free license, to try racing before committing to a full license, see link below.

Not quite sure which grade you are? Please feel free to have a chat with NCC Handicapper Peter Varricchio on 0411 118 262. If you have questions about racing please contact NCC on facebook messenger. If its your first race recommend arriving at sign on at least 30min prior to your race starting, to sign on, have your paper work with proof of license. Leave time to pin on numbers, put on timing transponder and warm up / have a nervous toilet break!

If you have never raced a criterium before and not confident in your bunch riding skills, we recommended you attend a Norwood CC + AusCycling SA criterium training session. See the AusCycling SA and Norwood C.C. facebook pages for more details.

Grade Caps

NCC enforces strict grade caps at our crits in the interest of rider safety. We have been selling out grades regularly over the past 12 months, so encourage everyone to enter early to ensure that you don't miss out. You can scratch with full refund up to nomination closing time.

If you receive one of the five waitlisted places - this means you are first in line if anyone scratches. We will move these riders up if we can, but it is unlikely that you will get to race.

If you get Waitlisted (Doubtful) it is very unlikely that you'll get to race.

Please don't:
-Ask to race with another grade;
-Turn up on the night hoping someone doesn't show;
-Ask to be given special consideration to race.

NCC is a volunteer run club and we hate having to say no to people! We want everyone to be able to race, but it just not possible sometimes.
