Presentations: - See race schedule.

Start procedures: 

Riders need to present for their race start at least 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time so that they can be Called-Up by Commissaires. It is likely that the first 3 rows will be called, rest in groups by row. AusCycling Victoria administer the Series points and as such the call up order. See series rules for further detail.

Riders in timeslots with multiple categories racing:

We generally stagger the start for riders with shorter race durations, which means once the chequered flag comes out, that signifies the end of the race for all categories. This means, for instance, WA racing for 50 minutes will start at the schedule start time, with WB who are racing for 40 minutes starting approx 10 minutes later - with everyone finishing together. It's still a good idea to be in the start area early for you call up, regardless of whether you have a staggered start or not (because: logistics of organising people).


SPECIAL NOTICES

CX bikes must run CX tyres - 35mm max width (as written on tyre with tiny allowance for tyre flare on wide rims). Definitely no FAAAAT tyres in CX Race Category. Riders can race Opens with any tyre, any bike.
PITS will be in operation: - As is the tradition in Cross, mechanical assistance must be taken from the designated pit area. Spare wheels & bike changes cannot be taken from random locations on the course - only in the pits. Riders must run the course to the pits if their bike is unrideable. If you feed outside the pits, the penalty is sharing it with all the volunteers. We will run double-sided pits so the max distance to pits should be no more than half a lap depending on course layout.
Series Races - minimum ages? - Open category races are not part of the VIC CX Series points aggregate and are regarded as 'club racing' categories. The minimum age for Series races is riders born 2003 (please check CV Series rules for DOB/effective date requirements). Older juniors (say U15), with suitable experience, looking to race the full course for a full race duration can enter Opens. Young Guns will be for a reduced number of laps and can be chaperoned (see below for more info).
