About

Proudly Hosted by the South Perth Rouleurs

A great Spring Classic Road Race

A fast, 114km out-and-back course over undulating, quiet rural roads. Reminiscent of the Beverley to Perth Race, cycle racing returns to the Wheatbelt town of Beverley again.

The history of the Beverley - known originally as the Rover Road Race dating back to 1897, then referred to as “The Beverley”, the original races ran through until 1999. This year, The Beverley Handicap sends riders Westwards out of town along the Talbot West Road and then returning.

Rolling over undulating terrain, riders travel through rural views gently uphill, into shaded bushland of Wandoo National Park. The turnaround on to the return run sees a fast flowing lightly downhill run. The racing climaxes in the short rise on the approach to Lennard Rd with 4km to go– the first rider to crest holds the advantage in a fast run into the line.

Ride safe, be courteous, obey road rules, listen to race officials and SPR hopes you enjoy the day

Race Format - Handicapped Road Race

Grades: A B C D men and women grades.

Event notes: Handicap 114km Riders ride off in small groups, slowest first, fastest last. The groups will over take each other and attempt to maintain the front of the peloton. The final numbers of grades and distances may be changed by the event organiser after close of registrations to suit the number of nominations. Mixed race grades may include men and women.

Please help the handicappers by nominating your regular road grade at entry.
This helps the handicappers by grouping riders into similar abilities.
The handicappers will then convert entries to start groups with handicapped bunch times.
Riders will be notified of their groups and bunch times via publication of the startlist.

Prizes: Prize money for over the line 1st through to 5th place, 1st Female, and 1st Over 45 year old, Fastest time Bonus Prize. Team Trophy - 1st through to 5th place. 4 riders per team, best 3 results summed - lowest positions wins. Not eligible for A graders.

My Laps Timing Chips: You must have a MyLaps timing chip to participate. Hire of a timing chip is $5 per event. If you have your own timing chip please ensure this is recorded in your EntryBoss profile - you will not be able to untick the transponder hire option until you have a transponder recorded on your profile.

Race Day Procedures


IMPORTANT

  • Race numbers: are to be worn on the rider’s lower back and LEFT side. Numbers must be clearly visible when the rider is in the drops. Lost or non-returned race numbers $20 fee.
  • Kit: All riders must wear approved kit. Club and registered team kit must be the current version registered with Cycling Australia. The alternative is a plain kit (no pro tour or non-registered local kits). See the Westcycle website for a list of approved team kits. https://westcycle.org.au/registered-club-and-team-kits/
  • Timing Chips: must be mounted on the left side of your fork, nice and low, to pick up on timing sensors for start and finish. Please avoid the Start Finish area where the timing system is set up once your timing chip is attached to your bike - this will affect your times for the day which may result in your times being void. Lost or non-returned timing chips $20 fee.
  • Finish Line Area: - It is important to keep all finish lines free from congestion. Please move off the road once finished.
  • Racing Incidents: - Safety is important. Please report all race incidents to the Race Director, or alternatively via the post-race rider survey. Incident reporting is an important feedback loop and helps improve safety going-forward.
  • Spectating: - It is requested that family & friends watch from roadside vantage points & do not follow bunches in vehicles.
  • Feed Zone there is no feed zone for this event.
  • Water Station will be located after the turnaround at the 59km mark. The Emergency Water Station DOES NOT permit food/drink drops or to be manned with non-event rider supporters.

  • Race Commissaire shall strictly enforce riles for safety and all road rules.
  • Any complaint or query during the event MUST be raised with the Race Commissaire or Race Director directly through the correct process.
  • Turnaround Point will be controlled by traffic management, but riders are ultimately responsible for knowing the correct route of their race. The course marshals are there for traffic control and safety, not to give riders directions.

  • ROADS ARE OPEN, ROAD RULES APPLY. Keep left at all times - OVERTAKE SLOW MOVING PUBLIC VEHICLES WITH CAUTION

  • You may need to overtake slower race grades and support vehicles – do so with caution
