Open Series and Visitors
The club gives riders that do not qualify by age (males 30 years
and older) to join the club, to participate in the clubs racing
but in a series of their own. You can either enter the full
series by paying a once off fee or you can ride each race separately
and pay a entry fee per race. Entering the series gives the
rider discount on the entry fee compared to paying per race.
Open Series and visitors can participate in all the clubs races
except the following:
- Gravel Road Race (closed to only club members)
- Time Trial (age group competition for members)
- Hill Climb (age group competition for members)
The Stage Race and Steak Race is not included in the Open Series
which is covered by the once off fee entry but can be entered separately
as a visitor at the visitors fee for the race. The Steak Race is
a charity event where entry fee goes directly to charity.
Club Racing Rules and
General Rules that is non-negotiable
The club has racing rules in place which are applicable to
Masters and Ladies racing and some general rules that MUST be
adhered to by all open series participants and visitors. These
are non negotiable rules and not adhering to these rules will result in
disqualification and discontinuing you participation in the
series or as a visitor in future races.
1. Open Series and Visitors start with the A group. You may NOT start in the Masters and Ladies
other seeded groups. If you miss the start of you group you must
proceed immediately onto the route and start the race.
2. If you are caught by any of the Masters
and Ladies seeded groups you MUST sit at the back of that group
and may not participate in the group by means of pace making,
sprinting at the finish or assist the group in any manner. You
are a "passenger" in that group and must remain behind
all riders of that group for the duration of the race or until
you are dropped again by the group.
3. The rule of the road applies i.e. keep to the left, and no
crossing of a solid barrier line.
4. No following vehicles are allowed to follow you. Spectators
may go to strategic points along the route and wait for you to pass
and then proceed safely avoiding going on the same route as far
as possible to the next advantage point and wait for you there
again until you pass.
Open Series Competition
Each rider accumulates Individual Points depending on where you
finish in the race as well as Club Points. This determines the
individual and clubs winners at the end of the season which are
rewarded at the Masters and Ladies Prize Giving at the end of
