The 2022 Christmas Carnivals 
The Sydney Christmas Carnivals as promoted by No Brakes Racing along side the Bankstown Sports Cycling Club with the help of our proud series sponsors is set to go off with a bang this year! great racing and training opportunity for all, great prizes and a whole lot of fun 

Starting the 28th December and running for 3 consecutive Days 28th,29th and 30th December. Doors open for sign on and Warm Up at 5pm racing starts at 6pm on the dot.

What Races can we expect?
All your favorite races from previous Christmas Carnivals. Sprint, endurance with the odd wheelrace or two mixed in with plenty of cash on offer over the 3 day series and even a few new races here and there 

Who can compete?
Any Riders from the participation U9s and above. Novices are welcome to come along as well.

Under 9s will be run as a series of Participation events over the three days including time trials and skill drills on the DGV run by qualified coaches to help this group of riders gain experience and confidence on the track, No fee will be charged for this Grade and riders will sign on at each event as they arrive. Programs will be released for these events closer to the first day of racing however will follow a similar format to last year. there is no points system for under 9s riders it is however a great way to upskill and try DGV for FREE!!! that's right under 9s ride free

last year we had some great success with junior and senior novice rider progressing into racing divisions from novice grades, and hope to continue this again

All attendees are to make themselves aware of the current NSW Health guidelines. Races may differ for Novice and younger juniors riders at each event depending on their skill levels and experience. NBR asks all patrons to be patient as we do our best to accommodate riders of different strengths and abilities. These opportunities are about helping to develop Grassroots cycling as well as offering competitive racing opportunities

How will grades work?

Grades aren't a bit of an honesty system to beginning with, so please do you best to nominate a fair grade from the start, we will have our NBR handicappers review entries ahead of the event and try to catch any outliers or miss grades but we tend to find grading is all sorted out after the first 2 round of the first day of competition. 

we encourage you to try and move up grades and you get to take your sign on points with you if you move! 

All in this year, Men and women together, we have taken on board a number of our competitors feed back over the last twelve months and while we will still seek to promote women's racing and opportunities in sport however at this time we don't have the participation numbers to be able to run full grades of separate women's fields while providing fair opportunity for competitive racing, our solution to this is to offer a separate points score ladder for our female competitors. This ladder will sit along side the series grades point score and basically help us establish our women's competition. NBR will still pay equal prize money for men's and women's placings, competitors will have the choice to claim their position in what ever grade they prefer but may not claim both series prizes. for example a rider could not claim prizes and prize money for being both the first female rider in a grade and also claim prizes and cash in the top 5 placing of the grade they racing in the open prize pool. This also means NBR will honor the equal number of places in prize pool placings for both open and women's grades, this is being done at our cost as an investment into the women's racing side of our sport 

If numbers permit we will do our best to still run women grades where participation is high enough for fair equal competitive racing and in heats we may try and cluster some women's riders together if they are of equal abilities in certain races  

A few more details...
NBR is upholding a high standard of safety by using the Bankstown Sports Cycling Clubs Covid Safe Plan. There will be plenty of sanitizer stations and clear directions for you to follow when you arrive to the venue as well as marshals to assist you on the day. Riders will be asked to please enter and exit via the main ramp of the velodrome and remain in their grades for the whole event. Warm up - race roll down - all as a grade. These along with many more steps will be taken to ensure riders can get the most out of their racing experience and stay safe as well.

Our Vision for the Sydney Christmas Carnivals:

No Brakes Racing has hopes to make the Sydney Christmas Carnivals a massive event that draws a crowd to all venues we host racing events, this year we understand that the format will be a little different to previous years, for many reasons we as promoters have had to keep to this format with a few tweaks here and there for the 2022 year and stick to one venue in the heart of Sydney the Dunc Gray Velodrome. Our Plan over the next 12 months is to coordinate with peak bodies to drive up prize pools, race attendance and spectator attendance for future events around NSW.

Our goal is to build this event to have a similar culture and atmosphere of an abbreviated version of a European 6 day event and once again fill all the velodromes of Sydney with spectators.

We are super excited to be able to run and with the assistance of amazing sponsors, great local clubs and the help of the greater cycling community. We know with your support we can make the best of any situation and thank you all in advance for your help in us working towards our vision for these events.

Kind Regards,
No Brakes Racing Management
