Details

Details

The 1.7km Cecil / Robinson Road circuit will see exciting criterium races from 6:00am to 7:30am with a half hour public transition to the opening of the official opening of the circuit at 8:00am. Each event, we try to provide a racing format for various sections of the racing / cycling community.

 

Volunteers and Sponsors

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

While the event is early, the streets are well lighted, so 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.

THE CIRCUIT AND RACE RULES

 

The races will follow the core UCI rules for criteriums. Please note the following:

  • YELLOW FLAGS are used to highlight an obstacle ahead or a crash. Please race as normal but be aware of the warning and exercise caution
  • RED FLAGS are used to neutralise a race (either to 20km per hour) or if instructed by the Marshal, riders should stop completely. Race can be neutralised for the following types of reasons:
    • Severe crash (early in the race) that impedes a majority of riders
    • Request by the Police / Lightning Warning where safety of the rider is compromised
  • Please Obey the Police and Marshals at all times
  • The estimated number of laps for each race is published, however the final lap count will be based on average speed of the first lap and calculated out.
  • The last 5 Laps will be counted down with the “1” sign accompanied by a Bell.
  • For this race there will be no sprint laps. We hope to introduce these into future races.

 

NO FREE LAP RULE

 

  • As these are short Crits of 10 laps or less, there is no free lap rule. If you suffer a mechanical or puncture there is not enough time to get back on before the race concludes.

 

LAPPED RIDER – OUT OF THE RACE

 

  • The Marshals may ask you to pull over and take you out of the race if you have been lapped or are about to be lapped, especially if there is a large peloton bearing down on you.
  • In some cases where the field is small, or strung out, you maybe allowed to stay in the race. In these cases please ensure you keep well to the left and do not interfere / “hang on” to riders who are a lap up. Be fair and let them ride their own race.
