Jungle Cross

Cycosports and Centaurs have come together to create the 2017 Jungle Cross series, that will allow individuals to race in various MTB categories as well as a separate Cyclocross and Fatbike race category.

6 Race Days

The series will consist of 6 races that will run throughout the year on dates that do not clash with other major road or mtb cycling events. The proposed dates are:

  • 12 Feb
  • 9 Apr
  • 9 Jul
  • 13 Aug (Special Team Event)
  • 24 Sep
  • 12 Nov 

Note:  Dates may change due to clashes or poor weather conditions (haze).  Each race will be confirmed and open for registration one month before. Please do let us know if there is a potential clash in the calendar.

 

11 National Points Categories

In 2017 there will be 16 MTB, Cyclocross and Fatbike categories of which 11 will receive points towards the 2017 National Points Series. Depending on numbers, various categories will be grouped together in various races, with potential for multiple starting waves in each race (again depending on the numbers). New and recreational riders who are not SCF licence holders can join the Sport, All Mountain and FatBike categories without a SCF licence.

Route

In 2017 we will have two courses - The Short Course and the Long Course. Well the names are boring but the courses are exciting.

 

Short Course

The short course is basically the 2016 course with some tweaking. It's aimed at the Cyclocross riders as well as MTB riders who are perhaps not as confident, but still want a challenge.

 

The setup of the race circuit will follow UCI guidelines and include a feed zone and staging area.

 

 

Long Course

Jungle Cross 2017 Route

 

The long circuit includes newly developed and improved sections of single trails, 2 new downhills with mouth watering switchbacks as appetisers.

 

The course is challenging enough for XC and All Mountain riders. It's more technical but still loads of fun.

 

Our aim is to continually develop the course and listen to the feedback of the riders.

 

The setup of the race circuit will follow UCI guidelines and include a feed zone and staging area.

 

Improved maps will follow soon.

Kid's Fun Races

 

Kids Sports Clinic

Youth (12 and Under) are invited to attend a 1 hour sports clinic conducted by SCF certified MTB coaches. After the hour session, there will also be a "fun" kids race on the top paddock / skills area. The fun races will be grouped according the numbers and ages that attend. The cost for entry is only $15 and can be booked online or 15 minutes before the start of the day's session. For full details of the Kid's Sports Clinic click here.

 

Prizes

2017 Jungle Cross Series Winners

At the end of the 2017 session, trophies will be allocated for the Top 3 points winners in each SCF Category where there are 3 or more points winners. Points are calculated based on the accumulated points across the 5 individual races. Unlike 2016, all 5 individual races will count.

 

Individual Races

For individual races we will recognise every SCF category that has 3 or more participants and do a podium presentation. As there are so many categories and numbers are unknown (this is the first year), we intend to present a "perpetual" trophy for the photo shots which is not kept by the individuals. At the end of the season, there will be trophies for the overall winners, 2nd and 3rd of each SCF category that has 3 or more points winners.

Sponsors Prizes

We are hoping to have sponsorship prizes for individual races and will update this page soon.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Please check through the frequently asked questions below. If you can't find the answer you're most welcome to drop us a question here.

 

Q: Can I register on the day?

A: No - You must register on the website and registration will be closing Thursday 6pm before each Sunday event. Final sign in and timing chip pickup will be on the day. You just need to come 30 minutes before the scheduled start of your race.

 

Q: Do I need a SCF  or UCI licence for this race?

A: We encourage you to purchase the SCF licence at $85 which includes insurance. The SCF licence is on a calendar year basis. If you are a recreational cyclists or new to the sport, you can compete in the SPORTS Category without a SCF licence. We do however strongly advise that you have some form of medal insurance that covers competitive sports.

 

Q: Can I cancel my booking once entered?

A: No, once paid, your entry is confirmed and nontransferable.

 

Q: Why are there so many SCF race categories yet only 3 races?

A: SCF is following the UCI categories that are recognised internationally. As we only have time for 3 races and many of the categories will have very small numbers, we need to group these categories. We can, however, include multiple waves in each race so that you don't all start at the same time.

 

Q: Does this mean there will be prizes for each SCF Category?

A: Yes and No. For the day's prize giving, we will recognise every SCF category that has 3 or more participants and have a podium presentation. As there are so many categories and numbers are unknown (this is the first year), we intend to present a "perpetual" trophy for the photo shots which is not kept by the individuals. At the end of the season, there will be trophies for the overall winners, 2nd and 3rd of each SCF category that has 3 or more points winners.

We are hoping to have sponsorship prizes for individual races and will update this page soon.

 

Q: How can I warm up before my race?

A: Please use surround roads (non-circuit) of Turf City and take caution and ensure you are back in time for your start time.

 

Q: Do you have medics on hand in case of emergency?

A: Yes we have a full medical team stationed at the event and ambulances on standby.

 

Q: I'd like to help out (volunteer) on the day - is that possible?

A: Absolutely - we always need help running these events. Please drop us a message here.

 

 

Event T&C's

Feed Zone

In 2017 there will be a new feedzone area. Supporters should only use this area to support their riders.

 

Staging Area

This year there will be a defined staging area which riders for the next race can gather and get ready for their race. In this way riders are more prepared for their race and there is less time needed between the start of each new race / wave. 

 

Pull Out

If you are lapped by the lead rider, the marshals can pull you out of the race, depending on the number of riders still participating. You will be advised to "pull out" just before the start / finish, however you can go through the Start / Finish gantry to record the lap and immediately pull out after this.

 

Category Placings

Even if you do not finish the race, we will "place" you according to how many laps you completed and the time. In this way if riders fail to complete all their laps due to time constraints, they will still have a recorded placing that is fair.

My children would like to try the Kid's Skills course for 5-12 year olds?

Terrific. You can register online or on location 30 mins course starts. The coaching session is 1 hour and includes some fun kid's races after. 

 

Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)

Please read the questions carefully and answer honestly.

 

Yes/No

1.    Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?

Yes/No

2.    Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?

Yes/No

3.    In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?

Yes/No

4.    Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?

Yes/No

5.    Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?

Yes/No

6.    Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?

Yes/No

7.    Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?

Yes/No

If you answered YES to one or more questions:

Consult your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which question you answered YES.

  • You may be able to do an activity you want – as long as you start slow and build up gradually. Or you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Consults your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
  • Find out which community programmes are safe and helpful for you.

If you answered NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure to:

  • Start becoming much more physically active. Starting slowly and building up gradually is the safest and easiest way to go.
  • Take part in a fitness appraisal. This is excellent for determining your basic fitness so as to plan the best way to live actively. Evaluating your blood pressure is also strongly recommended. For readings above 144/94, consult your doctor before you become more physically active.

Delay becoming much more active:

  • If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever – wait until you feel better, or
  • If you are or may be pregnant – consult your doctor before you start becoming more active.
