Entry Grades

Cyclocross is an exciting, challenging, whole of family activity. We don't expect you to be at World Cup level, but pushing yourself is all part of the fun - so please enter into a grade appropriate to your level of fitness and/or experience. The club reserves the right to move people who have entered in an inappropriate grade. We have 4 separate grades for Men & Women - A,B,C and 'Open' for first time races as well as grades for kids by age. If you are unsure of which grade to enter, here’s a very loose guideline:

  • If you race A grade on the road/MTB/CX, enter A Grade
  • If you race B grade on the road/MTB/CX, enter B Grade
  • If you race C grade or below on the road/MTB/C, enter C Grade
  • First-timers - If it's your first ever bike race and you have absolutely no idea what to expect, then enter the Open (Male or Female) Grade, have some fun, hang at the back to watch and learn the style of racing. This grade will start in a wave shortly after C.
  • Juniors and Kids enter your appropriate age category and have fun. Junior age groups are based on 2022 ages to fall in line with the National Series therefore second year riders will move up an age group
