Subject to change depending on entry numbers.

  • Free Practice: - additional free practice (partial course) will be available whilst kids racing is on.

  • Presentations: - See race schedule.

  • Start procedures: - The Chief Commissaire will separate grades and send them away in waves (eg separated by say 1 minute) if grade numbers are sufficient. Small grades may be combined. All results are captured separately regardless of startline grouping.


  • CX bikes must run CX tyres - 35mm max width (as written on tyre with tiny allowance for tyre flare on wide rims).

  • SSCX - This race is open to ALL comers riding ANY type of bike they like. E.g. BMX, tricycle, track bike, road bike. The only restriction is you are only allowed one gear. IF RACING SS, JUST LET US KNOW IN YOUR ENTRY COMMENTS. THANKS.

  • PITS will be in operation: - As is the tradition in Cross, mechanical assistance must be taken from the designated pit area. Spare wheels & bike changes cannot be taken from random locations on the course - only in the pits. Riders must run the course to the pits if their bike is unrideable.

  • Entry to one race will automatically enable you to ride a second race - i.e. Enter a standard CX race earlier in the day and for no extra cost you can also race the SSCX championship race as long as you only have one gear


  • Seniors: $25 (Includes the option of two races)

  • Kids: - by donation (on the day) - no need to pre-register.


Smile nicely at the chief commissaire and maybe offer them a beer for a favorable grading!!


  • Everyone who races needs to be licensed for insurance purposes. Many licensing options exist, depending on age & what you ride.
  • Riders can race on either a CA & MTBA race license.
  • PLEASE BRING YOUR LICENSE RACE DAY as it will need to be sighted at Rego.


  • On-The-Day Entries: - Riders should pre-register as on-the-day entries are not guarenteed a start if numbers are sufficient in your grade. Recommendation is for all riders to pre-reg.
  • Scratching: - online entrants can withdrawal with a self-serve, automated refund within EntryBoss prior to the scratching cut-off.
  • Time Management: - Please aim to arrive with sufficient time to rego, get ready, familarise yourself with the course, say hi to mates and to warm up. Most people need at least an hour prior their race start.


  • Kids enter on-the-day. Pre-entry is not necessary. Kids are guaranteed a start.
  • Balance Bikes and Non-Balance bikes race separately with separate courses. Non-Balance bikes will be graded by Commissaires on the day prior to race start (either by wheel size or age - to be decided based on logistics of administering the finish).
