Carts Christmas Crits is a special round of racing. Every year we race in Mark's honour.

It's not only a fantastic night for racing but also a great opportunity for friends, family and clubmates to get together. So bring a picnic blanket and a few drinks and celebrate the biggest night of racing in Canberra.

This year we've organised:

  • An Epic Women’s Series round
  • Catering – your race rego will include food and a non-alcoholic drink (see below for details)
  • Awesome prizemoney and prizes across the grades (see below)
  • A surprise visit from Santa
  • Christmas pudding for grade winners

Women's Series

Women's Series Round 3

The Summer Women's Series is multi-part series to provide a platform for women to race against other women. As a club, we realise that there are complexities surrounding female participation and the intention of this series is to encourage more of the talented women we have here in Canberra to race & participate. With varying feedback over the years, we recognise that there are benefits to mixing the grades and separating them.

The Women's series includes Women's A/B and Women's C/D races.

Women's Series Registration

To participate in the Women's series just register and select the normal open grade you would race. You will be entered into that grade like normal, and automatically entered into the Women's Series race.

Riders can then choose to race the normal round, the women's series race, or both! All for the same entry fee. Just register, show up with your Season Number correctly attached, and we'll do the rest.

Grade Changes

If you would like to request a grade change first read the information on the Crit Info Page.

When you are ready to request a grade change approach our club handicapper Nathan de Tourettes immediately after your race on a Wednesday evening to start the discussion.

You will not be able to request a grade change on the Wednesday at or before your race. This is to ensure safe and fair racing and to ease the administrative burden on our volunteers.

  1. There is no physical ‘check-in’ or ‘sign on’ as with previous years.
  2. No on the day grade changes
  3. Check in using the Check in CBR QR codes displayed around the marshalling area
  4. Using your phone, check the ‘live check-in' list on to see that your tag is working and that you have been automatically ‘checked-in’.
