Scratching Policy

  • 1.3 km closed circuit on Australia's newest dedicated bicycle racing facility!
  • U15 and U17 juniors are permitted to race with the senior grades.
  • Competitors MUST attend the race briefing in the marshalling area five minutes before race commencement.
  • There will be multiple grades on the circuit at the one time. The faster bunch is expected to pass a slower bunch on the left-hand side. The bunch being passed must adopt a neutral race condition on the far right until the pass is completed.
  • Grades may be combined if the number of riders entered is not conducive to quality racing.
  • The wearing of tinted glasses is not permitted during night racing. Commissaire approval may be granted in some circumstances.
  • Note: Racing may be cancelled if conditions are hazardous due to wet tarmac, lighting failure, recalcitrant wildlife or other unforeseen circumstances. Entrants can expect a refund of race fees in the event of race cancellation.


As a guide, if you have not raced a crit with us before, your initial grading upon entry is as per your current CQ Road Grading.

Please refer to the table below for your expected grade. You may request a different grade upon entry, e.g. based on your crit grading elsewhere. Please clearly explain your reasons for our Handicapper upon entry.

CQ Grading Your Expected Grade
Men's Elite A A Grade
Men's Masters A A Grade
Men's Elite B B Grade
Men's Masters B B Grade
Women's A B Grade
Men's Elite C C Grade
Men's Masters C C Grade
Women's B C Grade
U19 C Grade
U17 C Grade
Men's Masters D D Grade
Women's C D Grade
Women's D D Grade
U15 D Grade

If you have not managed to get a CQ grading yet, you may rely on your Muzz grading or equivalent. Just let the Handicapper know.

It is the responsibility of each rider to enter a suitable grade.

Ipswich Cycling Club appreciates your patience while we establish fair gradings.


  • You must leave a current CA Race licence at the registration desk while you are in possession of a race number. Alternatively you may present paperwork from CA confirming your licence is pending issue; e.g. a receipt.
  • No licence? If you haven't raced before you can get a Race Starter Kit, giving you two months of access to club combined racing. Just head to http://membership.cycling.org.au/Packages/Racing and look for the link.
