Handicapping

Regulars at SKCC’s Criteriums can find their Grading Status HERE. Please... no self promotion or demotion!

If you believe your form is awesome and you are looking to go up a grade you must complete an online grading form and give the handicappers your reasons for doing so.

If you have reasons for wanting to go down a grade you must also complete the online grading form and give the handicappers your reasons for doing so.

Information regarding grades, which grade to enter, and SKCC grading policy can be found HERE.

FAQs

Q. If I don’t get around to pre-entering can I still register and pay on the day ?
A. POSSIBLY, but not guaranteed. (Limited places may be available on the day, but they will attract a 100% late entry premium, ie SKCC members $30, non SKCC $40).

Q. If I pre-enter then can’t make it on the day, do I get a refund ?
A. You can scratch until 6pm on Saturday via EntryBoss. No show on the day = no refund. SKCC has chosen to run our final White St crit season at a loss, please help us make it the best season ever!

Q. If it rains and my grade is cancelled, do I get a refund ?
A. Absolutely! If racing is cancelled before event start, entry fee will be refunded.

Q. How do I claim my race number ?
A. On the day there will be a separate race desk set up with race numbers and a start list in alphabetical order. Find your name, find your number, hit the start line in time for your race briefing.

Who Can Race and What Do I Need?

Anybody can race with a current (UCI) racing licence - Cycling Australia or International. Domestic licences from a country other than Australia are not valid unless they are accompanied by a letter from the official Cycling body of the Country the licence originates from authorizing the licence holder to race outside of their Country.

The first time you race you will need to complete an online GRADING FORM.

Information regarding grades, which grade to enter, and SKCC grading policy can be found HERE.

Registration

All riders MUST show a valid licence OR proof of renewal (i.e. printout/PDF of online renewal). SKCC adopts a strict “No licence, no race” policy. If you forget your licence, or proof of licence you can purchase a 1 week pass or (for first time racers) a 2 month race starter kit, via the Cycling Australia website.

The registration desk closes five minutes before each race start time (see above).

What If I Don’t Have a Licence?

You can purchase a one week pass online from Cycling Australia. Or if you are new to racing, you can obtain a 2 month race starter kit.

Why Is SKCC Criterium Racing So Popular?

Our resident barista will be selling great coffee, brownies, muffins, drinks and other yummy snacks. Club extroverts call the races, sometimes in Spanish for that Euro feel! We provide toilets, there are plenty of seats for spectators and heaps of parking on Boundary Street.

What If I Have Never Raced Before?

First of all read our First Time Guide to Criterium Racing and Your First Race. SKCC offers “E” (ENTRY) grade every Sunday. E Grade is intended for people with little or no race experience. E Grade is supervised by experienced Total Rush sponsored riders who will assist with riding and racing skills. The first 20 minutes is under ‘control’ (not actually racing). So it’s a great opportunity for new riders to gain confidence, race experience and meet some fellow newbies!
