Race Rules

NSW Championship:

The NSW Championship will be conducted from U9 through to U17 with participation events incorporated into the program prior to each event category. We hope to provide you with safe and competitive racing conducted on our excellent closed road circuit. For the safety of riders, vehicles will not be permitted to enter or leave the course while racing is in progress.

There will be designated times between races where the course will be open to traffic, so if you wish to leave please listen for the announcer for those times.

Please note there is no running water available at the course so please bring supplies. Bottled water will be available from the canteen.

Race Conditions:

During the ITT there will be course Marshalls at each designated turning point and on corners with only authorised motorbikes allowed on the course during these events.

During the Road Race, spares will be available for under 15s and under 17s only.

Racing is strictly on the left hand side of the road including during the sprints. If a rider crosses the centre line of the road they may be disqualified, relegated and or fined (at the commissaire's discretion).

Gear Restrictions and Rollout:

Riders must have their gear rolled out prior to each stage. Please allow enough time for your rollout to be checked prior to racing.

The top 6 riders of each event will be rolled out straight after the race.

Blocking of gears will only be permitted by the adjustment of the derailleur or other means for U9, U11 and U13 riders.

CNSW rollout - U9/11 @ 5.5m, U13 @ 5.5m, U15 @ 6m and U17 @ 7m.

Numbers & Timing Chip:

TWO (2) jersey numbers and a timing chip will be supplied to all riders. One number is to be placed on the riders back and one number on the left rib cage for the road race and criteriums. One number is to be placed on the riders back for the ITT.

The timing chip must be either cable tied on the front fork or attached to a chip bracket. Failure to attach the chip will result in no time being recorded for your stage.
