Race Rules

Rules applying to all events

  • No garbage policy: please don’t litter out on the track. We will penalise you if we see you do it.
  • No cheating policy: you must follow the track. It will be clearly marked with arrows, bunting tape, flags and signs. If we see you cheating we will penalise you.
  • Rider down procedure – probably the most important rule of all: if you come to an accident out on the track you MUST stop and make sure the rider is ok. If he/she is not, stay with him/her and send the next rider straight back to the event centre to let us know what happened. If you lose time while helping an injured rider we will adjust your lap time at the end of the race.
  • If a race is deemed unsafe because of storm, rain, fire etc we will pause it, assess the situation and if possible restart it again later.
  • Passing: being friendly out on the track goes a long way. Let the rider you are about to pass know when and on which side. E.g. “rider coming up, passing on your right when you are ready”. Then say thanks and keep on smashing it. If you are riding in a train let the rider in front know how many people will pass him/her. If you are being passed find the next best place to move to the side and let them pass.
  • Race numbers must be displayed on the handlebars of the bicycle. The number plate must be readable, so it must be fastened as flat as possible. Altering, cutting or placing of unauthorised sponsors’ logos on numbers is not permitted. You can keep your number plate as a memento of your race.
  • Riders must register before they will be allowed to practice.
  • All riders must wear a bike helmet that has been authorised by Australian Standards (or approved international standard) at all times when riding and racing. You will be required to wear fully enclosed foot wear and gloves are recommended.
  • You must be present or represented at the ceremony at the end of the race to claim your trophy. If you can’t hang around we are happy to email you a copy of the certificate. You have to be present or represented at the last race of the series to claim your series trophy – again we can email you a copy if you can’t make it.
  • Minimum age is 10 years – exceptions are possible but need to be approved by the race director.
