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 race category.

6 Races

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
  • 23 Apr
  • 9 Jul
  • 13 Aug (Special 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.

 

14 Categories

In 2017 there will be 14 categories, of which 13 will received 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).

For full details of the 2017 National Points Series please click here.

In addition to the 14 categories defined by SCF, we will also aim to include groups like Fatbikes within the competition.

Further details will be announced closer to competition dates.

More Sponsors / More Fun

In 2017 we aim to build on the momentum and would like to hear from any organisation or group that would like to help sponsor the Jungle Cross series.

Potential sponsors could include companies providing financial support as well as sponsors of products in kind for prizes and participants.

 

 

 

 

 

Route

The Jungle Cross course is located at the Centaurs Sports Park at Turf City. For directions Click Here

 

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.

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 40 minutes before the scheduled start of your race.

 

Q: How do I collect my Race Bib and Timing Chip?

A: Please be at the Centaurs Sports Park at least 40 minutes before your race to sign in and pick up your timing chip and race number.

Please note: Timing chips and race numbers must be returned after your race (they are worth $100 so we must get them back)

 

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.
