Race Day Procedures

  • Spectating: - It is requested that family & friends watch from roadside vantage points & do not follow bunches in vehicles.


  • No License, No Race: - riders need a current license (or proof of renewal) to race. AusCycling accepted licenses only.
  • Red Light Policy: - The Northern Combine complies with AusCycling Victoria's red light policy. Riders are required to have a rear red light on solid to race. Spare lights may be available at Rego to borrow for riders who forget (no guarantee).
  • New to Racing: - AusCycling offer a 4 week trial license. Please see
  • On-the-day Entries: Sorry, on-the-day entries are not accepted.
  • Announcements: - Please check the Northern Combine Facebook page, or the individual entryboss race page for any announcements regarding racing.

Women's Grades

  • Select races throughout the season will offer separate women's-only grades.
  • For most races, Women will start with an Open/Men's grade (combined start) but be recognised with separate Women's results and podium. This allows for a bunch race experience without the disadvantage of having to race men.
  • When combined starts are required, the Women's A bunch starts with C Grade, Women's B start with D grade.
  • WC start separately wherever possible.

  • Occasionally some women do wish to race in harder grades rather than with the Women's designated grade (for instance Men's B). This is entirely your own decision and something that is supported.

  • See for more details on the Women's Series Points. In every race, every female who starts gets a point. The best 3 female finishers get extra points.
