COVID restictions have shortened our normal lead times and a number of event pre-requisites still need confirmation.
We are happy to advise the remaining organisation appears manageable, but should a showstopper prevent the event proceeding, we will mass refund all entries.

|Confirmation of Permits|

Select races throughout the season will offer separate women's grades as part of a Women's Series.
For scratch races not designated as Women's Series events, women can race in the standard Combine grades with separate recognition of results (eg WA race with C grade as a combined bunch with separate results). One benefit of racing in a combined grade is the opportunity to race in a good size bunch.
Occasionally some women do wish to race in harder grades rather than with the Women's designated grade (for instance Men's B). This is entirely your own decision and something that is supported.
See https://northerncombinecycling.org/racing/women for more details on the Women's Series.

The Northern Combine is looking for sponsors. If you or someone you know may be interested in supporting grass-roots racing please contact us via email@example.com
Vol Season Pass Holders are recognised at entry and FREE to eligible events. J17s if distances allow.
We do try to give back to some of the local communities we visit when racing. Please consider adding a voluntary contribution to your race entry. Last year we helped repair the Hall's kitchen after a burst pipe did some damage.
100% of your donation goes to the Balliang Community - either CFA or the Balliang Hall Committee.
