IMPORTANT RULES ABOUT THIS EVENT

GET YOUR ENTRIES RIGHT

  • If you do not get a confirmation entry email from Entryboss after you enter please contact us immediately. DO NOT leave it as we do not allow 'on the day' sign ups, no matter the excuse
  • No refunds after the 9pm Thursday 17 June. (This includes moving your entry to a future event)
  • Second categories - You need to tick the box. Your entry must be added on your initial registration. We are unable to add it later on.
  • Ensure you have sorted your race licence (insurance) via AusCycling before race weekend. We have turned away multiple racers who have been unable to show they have AusCycling insurance which is a horrible conversation to have.
  • There is a huge amount of admin work that goes into running these events. Many of us are putting an extra 20 hours or more a week on top of our full time jobs so please be respectful when speaking with us. A request to add categories after you have registered may seem minor, but we get hundreds of 'minor' requests each round

RIDER BEHAVIOUR

  • A few juniors were reported for their behavior at R2. Swearing, being extremely vulgar etc in front of spectators and families. Parents have been contacted with a warning.
  • Please remember that we are a family friendly club and have strict guidelines on rider and spectator behavior.
  • Reported riders who reoffend will have their race plates revoked and be suspended from the club for a period of time.

CONCUSSION POLICY

  • We have a strict concussion policy which is simply "if in doubt, sit them out". If concussion is suspected, the rider will not be allowed back on track unless they have a letter from their doctor supporting their return to sport. Riders, mums and dads do not get a say in this decision.
  • Riders please take care of each other and if you see someone coming off heavily and landing on their head, either knocking themselves out or looking disorientated please take note of their number and chat to them to make sure they dont get back on the bike. Afterwards let someone know of their plate number (track marshals, photographers, caravan crew, transport crew etc)

  • HELPING US COMES WITH PRIVILEGES - VOLUNTEER REGO

    A few people asked last round about people being added after the race was full. If you look at the names you will see some of our biggest volunteers and sponsors such as Cain, Joff, Elton, Yatesy etc.

    So please consider offering to help out wherever you or your parents can,.

    It could be specific roles like bunting the track, driving busses, parents helping at the caravan, or even simply helping pack up at the end of the event. It all adds up and we take notice of it! Come chat to us and get involved.

    Please sign up on our volunteer platform here: http://help.insideline.com.au/
