The event is a graded handicap, whereby male and females are graded according to ability, not age. Entrants will be placed in groups of similar grades depending upon their recent form and known ability. Each group will start the race at timed intervals, with slower groups heading out first, to the faster groups heading out last. All entrants will race the same distance.
Please help the handicappers by providing your regular scratch grade at entry and an entry remark. This helps with an initial grouping of riders of similar abilities, after which the handicappers can then confirm groups and time gaps.
**Please note - race is pending QPS and Dept Main Roads and Transport approvals
A payment card fee of $0.79 will be applied.
