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: What setup do I need to enter the All Mountain Category?

A: Full Suspension with 130mm of travel or more.

 

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

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.

End of Year BBQ / SCF Announcement

Similar to last year and with the help of many of the participating clubs, we are organising an end of year BBQ, starting at 10:30am

The idea is for everyone to unwind from a tough year of racing and socialise. 

There will be Halal and non-Halal bbq's operating and Cycosports will be providing some additional drinks for cyclists and the community.

During the morning, our friends from SCF will also be there to say hello to the community. They also have an exciting announcement for the MTB community.

Everyone is welcome, including "roadies" dropping by say hello.

If you would like to help contribute to the day, please feel free to bring along food / salads etc.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
