Course start/finish is Stromlo Forest Park Crit Circuit.


The 2020 Winter Road season is run by volunteers from the CCC and VCC. This season volunteers will be recognised with free entry to all eligible events in the Winter Road Calendar.

Yes, you can race and volunteer at this event!

Click here for full details and to nominate to volunteer.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions and prioritising making as many ‘racing’ places available as possible, we will require extra volunteers to make the Winter Crit series happen.

We are planning on running 2 volunteer shifts at each event. A ‘set-up’ shift 8am - 11.30am and a ‘pack up’ shift 11.30am - 3pm.

Please indicate your preference for either setup, pack-up (or both if you're able) in the comments section of the volunteer signup form. We suggest riders from A & B grade volunteer in the first shift and riders from C, D & E in the second shift so that you can still race if you want to. If that doesn’t suit let us know what works for you and we’ll do our best to accommodate all volunteers who want to get a start.

If we don't have the volunteer places filled for the race then, unfortunately, we will have to cancel the event. Volunteer names will be published to this listing and the start list as they come in.


Parking is available at Stromlo Forest Park.


To ensure that we have a record of all participants registration is only via EntryBoss.


The following registration rules have been applied:

  1. Preference will be given to registrations from club volunteers and local riders from ACT and associated cycling clubs (eg VCC, CCC, ANU, ADFA etc)
  2. The handicapper will be active: please be respectful of their decision and accept the grade you are allocated. All riders should enter their ‘normal’ grade.
  3. Places in each grade will be strictly capped.
  4. Once grades are full registrations will go onto a waitlist.
  5. Where a grade is not fully subscribed (i.e. we have ‘spare’ places) registrations will be allocated from the waitlist to the relevant grade until we reach our maximum ‘cap’. We will endeavour to do this as equitably as possible, giving regard to the order that participants registered, and the overall number of participants in each grade.

We ask for your understanding in the event that you register, are placed onto a waitlist, and ultimately are not allocated a start.

If you have registered and subsequently cannot attend please scratch yourself from the race so that your place can be allocated to another rider.

On the Day

  1. Upon arrival please confirm your attendance at the check-in desk (including collecting a number or confirming your permanent number) and then move clear of the check-in desk area.

  2. A rider briefing, count and roll call will be conducted before each grade roll away. Please be ready to move to the start line when your grade is called.

  3. At the finish of each grade riders should pass through the finish chute, move off the track, return your temporary number, and then clear the area.

  4. There will be no results presentation at the end of events. Results will be posted to the CCC website.

  5. No refreshments or water will be provided at the end of races. Water is available at the pavilion.

  6. If any rider exhibits COVID-19 symptoms in the two weeks following the race, they must advise the COVID-19 Officer who will follow up with health authorities.
