Vikings Cycling Club and Canberra Cycling Club are again teaming up to bring you a combined road calendar for 2021. Each road race is the result of a collaborative effort from the two clubs.
This rolling course profile has something for everyone. In the handicap format it will be important to keep your bunch together and working smoothly over the rolling terrain. Gauge your progress at the turn points and wind up the pace to make the catch or stay out in front.
For the latest advice refer to the travel advisories from the ACT Government and your state or territory government.
By registering for this event you agree to act in accordance with these requirements.
Total registrations are in accordance with current requirements. No limits on grade size. First in best dressed.
Course Start / Finish is at Lookout Hill Tharwa. https://www.strava.com/routes/6102549
There is parking available near the start / finish area. Please ensure that your vehicle is completely off the road, and well clear of the start / finish area.
The race will be 2 laps of a 25km course for ~50km total race distance. Start at Lookout Hill on Tidbinbilla Road. Head north on Tidbinbilla Road and turn around just after the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. Return to the base of Lookout Hill to complete the first lap. Head out again on the same course and turn around at the Tidbinbilla turn point. When you return to Lookout Hill for the second time the finish line will be top of the hill.
Based on rider feedback men and women can register and ride in 'Open' grades.
We will run Open A-E.
Juniors will race distances that are inline with the AusCycling Technical regulations.
Final bunch start times will be posted to the Start List on RaceResult listing once entries close.
First bunch roll away is 10am sharp.
Be sure to confirm your start time at check-in.
Check-in from 915 on the day. Check-in will close 15 minutes before the advertised start time.
Do not arrive at the last minute - allow yourself enough time to attach your timing chip and race number.
The 2021 Road season is run by volunteers from the CCC and VCC, but members from other clubs are welcome to volunteer and support racing in the ACT as well as receive the volunteer incentives set out below.
Volunteers will receive the following incentives at eligible 2021 Road Events:
To be eligible to claim free entry you must have nominated and been allocated to a race.
Use this form to nominate for a race.
Once you have nominated and been allocated to a race in a volunteer role you are free to use your free race entries at any eligible road race. Just hit the 'Volunteer Status Claimed' check box when you are registering.
Remember - it is a trust system. Please only claim volunteer entry if you have done your part to help the clubs as above. Save us the admin of having to cancel your entry if you have not nominated to volunteer, or if you have already used your volunteer credits.
Can I volunteer for a race later in the season, but claim my free race now?
You are expected to complete your volunteer duty on the date(s) you nominate in the season. If you've nominated and been assigned to volunteer at a race in the future you can still claim the appropriate number of free races before you've volunteered.
Can I volunteer and race on the same day?
You cannot race on the day you perform your duty unless you arrange for someone else (ie a friend or relative) to perform your duty on your behalf (must be as capable and willing as you are).
To ensure that we have a record of all participants registration is only via EntryBoss.
NO ‘ON THE DAY’ REGISTRATION
