Special Notices

  • CX Grades require CX bikes - Mountain bikes or Monster Cross bikes can race Opens.

  • CX bikes must run CX tyres - 35mm max width (as written on tyre with tiny allowance for tyre flare on wide rims). Definitely no gravel grinder or Monster Cross tyres in CX Race Category. Riders can race Opens with any tyre, any bike.

  • PITS will be in operation: - As is the tradition in Cross, mechanical assistance must be taken from the designated pit area. Spare wheels & bike changes cannot be taken from random locations on the course - only in the pits. Riders must run the course to the pits if their bike is unrideable. We will run double-sided pits so the max distance to pits should be no more than half a lap depending on course layout.

  • Series Races - minimum ages? - Open category races are not part of the VIC CX Series points aggregate and are regarded as 'club racing' categories. The minimum age for Series races is riders born 2004 (please check CV Series rules for DOB/effective date requirements). Older juniors (say U15), with suitable experience, looking to race the full course for a full race duration can enter Opens. Young Guns will be for a reduced number of laps and can be chaperoned (see Tech Guide more info).


RACE FEES:

  • Seniors: $35 + $5 Track Levy
  • Race & Vol: - $15 + $5 Track Levy (volunteering at this race)
  • Junior (U13-U17): - $15 + $5 Track Levy
  • Young Guns: - $10 + $5 Track Levy (will be transponder timed). Please pre-enter.
  • Kids: - by donation (on the day) - no need to pre-register.


Track Levy - Broadford is a premiere venue. The track levy directly contributes to the cost of hiring the venue.

All senior grades are pre-enter only.


GRADING

If in doubt, please refer to this article from the FOJCX way-back machine for advice regarding grading. http://fojcx.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/what-grade-please-be-guided-by-your.html


VICXS Series Points

** D R A F T** - Awaiting release of Series Rules

VICXS is a race series, and series placings are determined by a points aggregate across the series. Please note that riders that need to change grades during the series, can only take half their points with them upon grade changes. Please take this into consideration when selecting your grade.


LICENSING

  • Everyone who races needs to be licensed for insurance purposes - including kids. Many licensing options exist, depending on age & what you ride (see below).
  • Riders can race on either a CA & MTBA race license.
  • PLEASE BRING YOUR LICENSE RACE DAY as it will need to be sighted at Rego.

REGISTRATION

  • On-The-Day Entries: - A very limited number of on-the-day entries may be available. Please note no guarantee of entry. Please pre-enter where ever possible.
  • Scratching: - online entrants can withdrawal with a self-serve, automated refund within EntryBoss prior to the scratching cut-off.
  • Licensing: - All riders need to be licensed to race. Either Cycling Australia or MTBA Race Competition licenses
  • Day Licenses etc: - CA & MTBA offer day licenses & race starter offers. ( see Cycling Aust or MTBA )
  • Time Management: - Please aim to arrive with sufficient time to rego, get ready, familarise yourself with the course, say hi to mates and to warm up. Most people need at least an hour prior their race start.

KIDS RACING:

  • Kids enter on-the-day. Pre-entry is not necessary. Kids are guaranteed a start (note: must be licensed for insurance purposes).
  • Balance Bikes and Non-Balance bikes race separately with separate courses. Non-Balance bikes will be graded by Commissaires on the day prior to race start (either by wheel size or age - to be decided based on logistics of administering the finish).

YOUNG GUNS.

Young Guns is a special category allowing older kids with suitable experience to ride the full course (as a guide, say 12yo+ but depends on child). Young Guns can be chaperoned by a parent or other capable rider.

Anyone entering Young Guns needs to talk to the Race Director on race day to assess your child's suitability.

Spots are limited. Please allow time to have the required conversations. The course is tough and we want kids riding Young Guns to have a positive experience. Feedback on Young Guns has been fantastic but we recognise this category is not for everyone. Young Guns need to be Race Licensed (not Recreational Licenses sorry). Young Guns will be timed like senior riders so they can compare times.

Young Guns is more a participation category and allow younger riders to experience the full course. Older juniors (say U15) wanting to race the full course for full duration should enter Opens. Please note that CX is very physically demanding so please ensure your child has enough experience to know what they are in for and are likely to come away with a positive experience.
