Race Format and Regulations:
The event will be run in an Omnium-style format where riders will score points in each event towards the overall Endurance GP classification of the day.
The Endurance GP will consist of at least 4 (3 for junior categories) of the following event types: Mystery event, Scratch, Tempo, Elimination, Points Score.
Scratch and Elimination (every 2 laps) will be run in the standard format.
Tempo: first 5 laps no points, then each lap the first rider crossing the finish line will score points starting with 1 and increasing by 1 every lap. (e.g. lap 6 = 1 point, lap 7 = 2 points, ..., lap10 = 5 points etc.).
Points Race: First Sprint 5,3,2,1 points; 2nd sprint 10, 6, 4, 2 pts; 3rd sprint 15, 9, 6, 3 pts; 4th sprint 20, 12, 8, 4pts.
Riders are not required to ride/finish every discipline for the overall standing but will obviously miss out on scoring points this way.
Overall ranking points for each event (except Points Score): 1st 15pts - 2nd 12pts - 3rd 10pts - 4th 8pts - 5th 6pts - 6th 5pts - 7th 4pts - 8th 3pts - 9th 2pts - 10th 1pt etc.
Points scored in the Points race will be added to the overall tally.
The rider that scores the most points over the day will be declared the winner of the Endurance GP.
Prizes and Presentations:
Complimentary race entries and/or tickets to the Melbourne Cup on Wheels and the Austral Wheelrace.
