Season Pass

What is it?

The Northern Combine offers a Volunteer Season Pass - unlimited racing at 2020 Northern Combine events for only $45.


How it works

  1. Join the volunteer roster.

  2. Buy this season pass online

  3. When they open, enter any eligible event that takes your fancy.

  4. EntryBoss will recognise Season Pass Holders as eligible for free entry - no further payment required.

Note: No need to wait

You are able to access the volunteer pass as soon as you have submitted your volunteer nomination. The Northern Combine Volunteer Coordinator will contact you in due course and together you will confirm your volunteer duty.


Who is eligible?

  • The volunteer season pass is currently open to all volunteers.
  • Volunteers can be from any club (including non-combine clubs).
  • Riders can have someone volunteer on their behalf and still claim volunteer status (a great way to involve friends or family in your racing)

Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour volunteers are also eligible.


Eligible Events

This offer applies to Northern Combine events hosted by Combine affiliated clubs.

Note: what's not included

1) Race entry to The Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour is not included. People volunteering for the Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour are able to take up this season pass for the Northern Combine races season.

2) Invitational Events

The NC official fixture includes some invitational events hosted by non-NC clubs. These are 'fixture sharing' in nature (ie races hosted by Geelong or Footscray) and run on a reciprocal invitational basis. The NC does not control entries to these invitational events and as a result, these are excluded from this offer.


Frequently Asked Questions

Volunteering - What's Involved

  • To be recognised as a volunteer, you need to register for a volunteer duty.

  • The Volunteer Coordinator then confirms you in a duty, and hopefully is able to accommodate your preferences.

  • You are expected to complete one duty at some point in the season (noting that you give up vol status if no mutually suitable duty can be found between yourself & the vol co-ordinator).

  • You cannot race on the day you perform your duty (unless - see next)

  • You can have someone else perform your duty on your behalf (must be as capable and willing as you are)

  • All vols are briefed prior to their roles so do not necessarily need direct race volunteer experience.

Full details here.


Where Do I Find the Vol Roster?

Please nominate for a duty (here)[http://northerncombinecycling.org/volunteer-nomination]. The Vol Coordinator will confirm your preferred role or help organise an alternative date.

Are numbers limited?

Once the volunteer roster is full, we'll be closing this offer. NC club members will be given preferential entry (but still need to be quick).

Do I still have to Enter races?

Yes - you'll still need to enter races, you just won't need to pay any more. This is to prevent "no shows" impacting the integrity of the startlists for individual races - especially handicaps.

Can I Get a Refund for Unused Races?

Sorry, no refunds or partial refunds.

Can I Enter as Normal and Claim Vol Status?

Yes, volunteers can enter & pay race-by-race ($15) as normal.

The Season pass is completely optional and offered as a special reward for those who give back to racing through volunteering.
