ALL ENTRIES CLOSE Sat, 25 Jul 2020 6:00 PM AEST SHARP.
Online entry cost is $20.
If the race is cancelled due to weather (Ha Ha, this is cyclocross, we don't cancel unless high winds make it dangerous!! There are lots of old gum trees about the course), all online entries will be refunded.
Which Race Do I Enter? - We get asked this a lot. So, The Elite Races are for Elite racers (obviously) who are U19 or above and if you race A grade on the road you should be in there! Mens B is for anyone in a regular MTB/Road B/C grade level that has a CX bike. Men and Women Open is for riders U15 and above, and around a C/D grade level Road/MTB rider, or anyone who only has a MTB to race on. BUT, if you're an A/B grader, you should be getting a CX bike and entering the Elite/B race.
No License, No Race: - Riders need a current license (or proof of renewal) to race. CA and MTBA licenses allowed. Licences may be checked at any time so to make sure you can race, BRING your licence (physical or digital version) with you to every race.
On-the-day Entries: THERE ARE NONE, PREREGISTRATION ONLY. For the free kids race there is no registration required, just turn up with bikes and helmets ready to go.

To support families with junior riders, CCCC also offers the following:
Juniors under 19 years ride for FREE and race for the podium – no prize money
(Junior categories are calculated from date of birth, using Cycling Australia membership categories)
Juniors may race both the Junior specific (modified course) and another category, i.e. Mens/Womens Open or Mens B Grade.
All entries are provisional until reviewed by the race director and/or handicapper. If you are unsure of which grade to enter, pick which you think is the best, and put some notes in your entry for the handicapper to review. If you are an A grade road rider, please enter the Elite or A Grade race regardless of your cyclocross experience!
