Points Awarded

Jungle Cross races will be awarded points over four points bands, A, B, C & D with Open taking the highest points and other age categories taking the lower bands.The idea is to reward riders who selected higher race categories by giving them more points which they can accumulate over the season.

2019 Points Table

 

Volunteer Points

Each participant has the option of “earning” 60 points by volunteering to assist in SCF / Event Sanctioned events (Road or MTB). A rider can nominate an individual (e.g. Mother / Friend) to undertake the volunteering. A rider may volunteer more than once, but only 60 points will be allocated to each rider and counted to their year-end total.

 

Race Rules

Unless otherwise stated here, the Jungle Cross series will follow the UCI rules for a MTB XCO event. Riders should be familair with UCI race rules, in particular the feed / technical zone and "pull-out" rules.

 

2019 SCF License

If you would like to be in the SCF 2019 Points Competition, then you will need a SCF 2019 License. You may compete in any category without a license, however you will not be awarded any 2019 SCF points. Please note the Sports category does not receieve any points.

 

Race Insurance

Please note that all riders should have their own insurance that covers them for MTB race activities. If an ambulance is required to take you to hospital, the cost of the ambulance will also be charged to the individual.

 

Race Number

Your race number should be clearly shown on the front of your bike (normally attached in front of teh handlebars). Please do not bend, fold or cut your number plate - you maybe disqualified in such cases.

 

Race Attire / Helmet

All riders must use a safety certified bicycle helmet. Your shirt can not be sleeveless. If you are unsure of your attire, please consult a commissaire before the race.

 

Mechanic and Feed Zone

The feedzone is located at the furthest Centaurs Tent (towards the paintball area). Depending on the race setup (and whether there are children's events), feeders may have to support riders outside of the tent cover, reducing congestion and looking after the little ones in the area. Supporters should only use this area to support their riders. The feedzone will be clearly marked on the day.

Please note that any technical problems with your bike during the race must be addressed within the Mechanic / Feed Zone.

 

Staging Area

There is a staging area just next to the start / finish arch where riders for the next race will 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. You should be at the staging area at least 15 minutes before the scheudled start of your race.

 

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.

Riders may also be "pulled out" once the lead rider has finished. If riders are too far behind on their final lap(s) they will be pulled to ensure the course schedule is maintained. 

 

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 and can receive season points if they have an 2019 SCF annual license.
