  • Men B-Grade (50 mins)
  • Men C-Grade (40 mins)
  • Women A-Grade (50 mins)

Minor alterations on race time may be required based on entries. These changes must be approved by AC in advance of the event. The event organiser is encouraged to run other support events (e.g. Open and Kids). These will not be eligible for series points.

Grading

All riders will be graded before their first series event. At the start of the year riders will have the right to query their grade however after the first event it will not change unless it is changed by AusCycling or the change occurs in relation to sections A, B or C in this paragraph. In most instances riders will be upgraded upon achieving a certain amount of grading points (see table below) during the year. No grading points will be carried over from 2021.

  • Riders may be upgraded automatically if their lap times would place them in the top half of a higher category if racing in the same or similar conditions (min.10 riders required in higher grade).
  • Riders may request a downgrade if their lap times (mechanical mishaps excluded) would regularly place them in the bottom half of a lower grade (minimum 10 riders required).
  •  A rider that is upgraded (downgraded) during the season will retain half of the Series points to the next ability category.
  • No mandatory upgrades based on accumulated grading points will be made after the second last Series round. Riders scoring the required upgrading points after the second last or last round will be upgraded before the first round in 2022.
  • Category changes may be made at the discretion of AusCycling anytime. 

Start Order

Unless otherwise mandated by the supplementary series rules, start order will be determined as follows:

  • For the first race of the series, the AusCycling Technical Delegate (CX) will rank the riders one (1) to eight (8) in each category in consultation with the series organisers;
  • They will be followed by the rest of the field by order of registration;
  • In successive events, competitors will be ranked according to overall series standings. Riders who have not earned series points will be randomly seeded behind ranked riders. 

Tyre Width

I.    A Grade is to adhere to UCI Technical Regulations, limiting maximum tyre width to 35mm;
II.    For B and C Grades, maximum tyre width may exceed 35mm.
