LOCATION


The race will be held at Eagle Mountain Bike park which is located south east of the city via the freeway to the Adelaide Hills.

Once on the freeway look out for the turn off to the left for Eagle Mountain Bike park. (only a couple of minutes up the freeway).

From there, follow the twisty road up the hill and look out for Inside Line flags. (you will need to drive a bit further up the road to turn back around to here). Then follow the dirt road to the quarry.

Race village will be in the quarry, with parking further up on the mezzanine level.

VOLUNTEER REGO



This year we are focusing on getting everyone to help out so please put up your hand to help setup, packup, drive buses, marshall, collect or return trailers etc. The list is endless and we need all the help we can get.

Volunteers are rewarded with a bunch of great things like early entries so you don't miss out on racing, t-shirts, club jerseys, shuttle days and more. Get in touch with us if you would like to help out.


CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT



All registered racers must have the following:

  • Two working brakes
  • Bar plugs/ends on handlebars
  • Full-face helmet with a fixed non-detachable mouth-piece that satisfies the current Australian or equivalent international standards
  • A jersey or shirt covering the elbows
  • Knees must be covered by full length trousers and/or self-fastening knee or knee/shin guards expressly designed for off-road cycling
  • Fully enclosed shoes
  • Body armour, goggles and neck braces are strongly recommended
  • NO singlets allowed

The following clothing requirements are MANDATORY for riders in the U15 and U17 categories:

  • Knee pads
  • Elbow pads
  • A long-sleeved (full length) jersey or shirt
  • Full-finger gloves

NOTE: The Race Director reserves the right to deem any participants clothing or equipment unsatisfactory. It is up to the participant to ensure they meet the above minimum requirements for the purpose in which they are intended.


CONCUSSION POLICY



We have a strict concussion policy which is simply "if in doubt, sit them out". If concussion is suspected, the rider will not be allowed back on track unless they have a letter from their doctor supporting their return to sport. Riders, mums and dads do not get a say in this decision.

Riders please take care of each other and if you see someone coming off heavily and landing on their head, either knocking themselves out or looking disorientated please take note of their number and chat to them to make sure they dont get back on the bike. Afterwards let someone know of their plate number (track marshals, photographers, caravan crew, transport crew etc)

CLUB CODE OF CONDUCT



Unfortunately we have had to ban racers form the club in the past for being idiots.

With that in mind, all competitors MUST conduct themselves in a manner according to our club code of conduct.

The code applies to all people associated with our series. Inside Line wishes to operate in a nondiscriminatory environment where people show respect for others and their property. Please line up nicely at the back of the line, you will all get plenty of runs in.

We also operate in an environment free from harassment of any kind. We are a child-safe club and take our provision of a family friendly environment very seriously. All individuals are expected to show a commitment to Inside Line policies, rules, procedures, guidelines and agreements.

Unacceptable Behaviour

  • 'Sledging’ other athletes, officials or event organisers.
  • Excessive use of alcohol, acting in a way that becomes a public nuisance, or creating a public disturbance.
  • Damaging another person’s property or depriving them of that property
  • Not stopping or slowing down when there is a clear issue on the track such as a downed rider to the side of the track
  • Swearing, inappropriate comments or language

Let's be safe, enjoy riding our bikes and have some fun! :-)


CONTACT / WAITLIST PROCESS

Entryboss will still take your payment if you are waitlisted - this does not mean you are racing - we will let you know closer to race weekend if you have been entered to race or not.

Entries are capped.

  • Entered = You are racing
  • Waitlisted = you are in the queue to replace someone who drops out (you have a good chance due to the number of covid cancellations)
  • Waitlisted Doubtful = It is unlikely you will be racing
