Description


Welcome to the Grafton Cycle clubs grassroots racing event - All Grades Matter. GCC chose to quickly throw together this fun event to coincide with the club holding their Annual general meeting, hence the AGM theme. We are putting $600 prize money on the table, which is $100 for each event.

We are trialing a new concept of utilising the hillclimb and go kart course at the Mountain View Motorsports complex for running a series of criterium races, and a hillclimb individual time trial. The crit races for A, B, C grade men and women, will require a current CA RACE licence. However the 4th event will be for our social riders and beginners who don't call themselves racers, this will not be timed as a race, so we can allow members with Current CA RIDE licences or MTBA Rec licences to participate, since its not a race we will be distributing the $100 prize money for this category with some "creativity".

Because GCC is a MTBA affiliated club we will be holding an extra race which will include a few dirty detours for the Bom Bom Crew. There will be a seperate registration system via an MTBA link for the MTB race. 

The Program for the days racing is as follows

  • 6:30-7:15 registration and warm up on criterium course
  • 7:20 Event introduction and race briefing.
  • 7:30 Hill climb ITT. Prizes for fastest female and male as well as random prizes for closest to secret times.
  • 8:30 Novice/Beginners Criterium. 10 minutes plus 3 laps. (female and male)
  • 8:50 C Grade Criterium. 15 minutes plus 3 laps. (female and male)
  • 9:15 B Grade Criterium. 20 minutes plus 3 laps. (female and male)
  • 9:45 All in MTB Challenge. 15 minutes plus 3 laps. (female and male) (Enter via MTBA)
  • 10:10 A Grade Criterium. 30 minutes plus 3 laps. (female and male)

After the Race GCC Road and MTB members are requested to attend the AGM (aiming to kick off at 11am) for nomination of roles going forth into 2021. All GCC members that attend will be provide a FREE coffee and a bit of a feed.

Given that this is an invitational club event we have chosen to invite our neighbouring clubs - Coffs Harbour Cycle club, Murwillumbah Cycling club and Ballina Cycling club. We are sorry for the late notice but we hope to see some of you here... PS we cant offer the visiting clubs free coffee, but the coffee van will be on site for purchases.
