Racing the series

  • Riders need to complete at least 2 races in one category to be eligible for an individual series podium ranking.
  • Every race counts.
  • Racers will accumulate points against their name in each category they compete in.
  • Names must be spelled exactly the same way in all races. It is the responsibility of the rider to double check the correct spelling in the pointscore.
  • Racers can compete under different team names.
  • A rider can be in the points multiple times in different categories.
  • Points scored in one category can’t be transferred to another.
  • After the second round we will publish the accumulated points.

The series will be split into:

Race accolades

With the 4-hour, we are taking a more focused approach to our XC lap racing events, which will challenge the pros and rewards the personal bests of ambitious and passionate Rocky Trail racers. Top 3 podiums across all solo and pairs age groups receive podium race plates and accodales (1-2-3 stickers).

We will deliver the most expansive 4-Hour XC Series with events in NSW, ACT, QLD and VIC. Each race offers cool winners race plates, which is a set of special additional classifications:

  • Solo GC Winner plate in yellow for male and female outright solo winners
  • Junior Sprint Winner (male/female U18 fastest lap time) in white
  • Best Sprinter for the fastest adult lap time (male/female)
  • KOM/QOM with a polka dot race plate

Note:

  • e-bikes are not eligible for the special classifications
  • If riders win multiple race accolades they will only be awarded the highest one with the other(s) going to the runner up(s) – meaning every rider will only receive one plate per race and they are ranked in the following order: Yellow, White, Green, Polka dot

See you at the start line!
