While the roads are closed during this time, there are many pedestrians around the area. We will be asking for the support of the larger cycling community to assist. 

We hope the Singapore cycling community will come down and support / cheer on their fellow riders. It's only through showing that we have a vibrant and sharing cycling scene, will more opportunities come to the competitive cycling scene.

Route

 

Getting There

The easiest way to get to the race venure is via Mountbatten Road (Nicoll Entrance will be closed from 6am).

PLEASE NOTE: Security does not want riders "warming up" within the stadium area. Please use adjacent "open" roads to warm up.

The Course

It's a stretch of road known by many cyclists already. The 1.1km "hotdog" circuit is on a smooth 2 lane road, featuring a tight, but managable turn at round about one and a sweeping turn around round-about two at the other end. The Start / Finish will be placed "exactly in the middle of the course.

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: Why the change to Grade Races in 2019?

A: Grade racing "evens up" the field so that like skilled / strengthed riders race together, regardless of age and gender. The idea is to provide more competitive and safer racing for all.

 

Q: I Don't Know What Grade I Am?

A: If you have not been allocated a grade by SCF, then we would suggest you choose C or D if you have some race experience, otherwise choose E if absolute beginner.

 

Q: Do I need a License for Non SCF Point Races (Like this one)

A: No you don't need a license to compete in this event as there are no points to be earned. We do however insiste that riders are covered with their own insurance in the case of race / medical accidents.

  

Q: Can I register on the day?

A: No - You must register on the website and registration will be closing a few days before the event. Pickup of the chip / race pack will be at the event itself 30 minutes before the race starts.

Q: Can I cancel my booking once entered?

A: No, once paid, your entry is confirmed. Cycosports has the right to transfer an entry (bib number) to another rider if the original participant is a "no-show" on the day. There will be no refund for "no shows".

 

Q: How can I warm up before my race?

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

Volunteers

 

We Need You!


Volunteer Marshal

The Criteriums always require volunteers to ensure the intersections on the course are safe. While the roads are closed, the circuit is "porous" with joggers and pedestrians  potentially walking across the circuit.

 

To ensure members of the public and riders are all kept safe, volunteer marshals are needed and deployed on every intersection.

 

Volunteering gives you a first class seat to the morning's action as well as earning yourself (if not racing) or a friend valuable volunteer points for the season.
