Race Results

All races are timed using the clubs electronic timing system and the results can be found by using this link – http://my.raceresult.com/?group=1327


Race rules

  • Have FUN!
  • Only one team member may race at any time, and only the designated rider is permitted on the course
  • Self seed and be honest.
  • Be courteous at all times – there are other riders on track doing their best, it is only a club race so please be patient when behind slower riders. For example call out “track when convenient”or “rider” when approaching. Wait until they respond with “on my left” or “on my right” before overtaking, once you have overtaken say “Thank you!”
  • Reports of bad etiquette, abuse, pushing riders out of the way will be dealt with by the parties involved and the Race Commissaire – we will not tolerate bad behavior at club races. Guilty offenders will be disqualified from the race and serve a 2 race ban.
  • Please follow the course, we do our best to mark the course with bunting and arrows. Please take great care with arrows as some of the race tracks have trail arrows and not CORC arrows. Do not take short cuts or stray from the single track or fire trail. If you see a rider cutting the course, please let the Race Director know and the rider will be disqualified from the race.

Other Race Day information

  • This is a 3 hour race where the aim is to complete as many laps as possible within the 3 hour period. No new laps can be started at the end of the 3 hour period, however riders are allowed to complete the lap they are on.
  • Team riders are required to tag eachother
  • Please do not pass or go near the timing mat with a numberplate on unless you are racing. We do our best to block off entrance to the timing mats before and after racing but please keep this in mind when you have finished your race. Also, If you have a pitstop for whatever reason in the race, stop away from the timing mat to avoid a double detection.
  • If for any reason you withdraw from a race, please tell the Race Director
  • Don’t leave rubbish out on the track. Pick up your rubbish such as gel wrappers and drink bottles
  • If you see an injured rider please stop to help them, we can adjust your lap times to make up for any lost time
  • Riders need a current license (or proof of renewal) to race. MTBA race licenses only. Licences may be checked at any time so to make sure you can race, BRING your licence (physical or digital version) with you to every race.
