To assist our Line Judges, can all riders please claim places following each race. Claim with line judges and commissaires after your event in a timely manner regardless of transponders being in place or not. Thanks.
To assist in the development of bunch and race skills, an experienced racer from the club will lead the E grade race as a Ride Marshal. The first 10 mins of the race will be run under “controlled conditions.” This will allow participants to gain confidence and race experience, while developing their bunch skills. The Ride Marshal will lead the first half of the E grade race at a sustainable pace for all riders, ensuring that the bunch remains together for this part of the race.
Before the race, the Ride Marshal will be around the sign-on area. Look for someone in cycling clothing with a hi-viz vest. If you have any questions regarding racing, the Ride Marshal will be happy to answer your questions or assist you if they can.
Your first criterium may seem like a daunting prospect with many unknowns, but our experienced Ride Marshals are a wealth of knowledge and experience who are here to help. They can help you with:
- Pinning on numbers and transponders
- Bunch etiquette and race skills
- Tips to help you get the most out of your racing experience
Please check what grade you have been placed in by the handicapper via the "View startlist" button prior to the event starting. The handicapper reserves the right to handicap riders as they see fit. It is the responsibility of the rider to review the published start list. Please enter relevant information for the handicapper when you nominate. The earlier you nominate, the earlier you get handicapped. Changing of grades on the day is not permitted. Only the Handicapper or the Chief Commissaire may regrade a rider on the day.
Please do not request grade changes to our volunteers on the Sign-on desk
First time racing this season? Moving forwards, we will be using Cycling South Australia's Fixed Number System. When you sign up for your first race, you will be allocated a number for your grade. You keep these numbers and bring them to every crit you race. If you go up a grade, you exchange your numbers when you sign on for your first race in your new grade!
For further information, see the FAQ here - https://data.cycling.org.au/sites/default/files/2020-06/Fixed%20Number%20FAQ_0.pdf
Are you new to racing? Then why not try Cycling Australia's Starter pack, to try racing before committing to a full license, see link below. Not quite sure which grade you are? Please feel free to have a chat with NCC Handicapper Peter Varricchio on 0411 118 262. If you have questions about racing please contact NCC on facebook messenger. If its your first race recommend arriving at sign on at least 30min prior to your race starting, to sign on, have your paper work with proof of license. Leave time to pin on numbers, zip tie on timing transponder and warm up / have a nervous toilet break!
If you have never raced a criterium before and not confident in your bunch riding skills, we recommended you attend a Norwood CC + Cycling SA criterium training session. See Cycling SA website, or the Cycling SA and Norwood C.C. facebook pages for more details.
U17 Juniors can ride up as long as all conditions of the CSA Juniors Riding Up Policy are met, and the relevant forms are signed and a copy is provided prior to race start to the Chief Commissaire (typically Di Tattersall at NCC events). Note if a junior grade is offered, for example the NCC Sunday Winter Criterium Series programs, riders must compete in the Junior Grade prior to riding up in the Senior Grade.
Please contact Steve Walker NCC Junior Officer & Junior Handicapper for more information. m: 0400 232 256 e: firstname.lastname@example.org
