VICXS Series Points

VICXS is a race series, and series placings are determined by a points aggregate across the series. Please note that riders that need to change grades during the series, can only take half their points with them upon grade changes. Please take this into consideration when selecting your grade.


LICENSING

  • Everyone who races needs to be licensed for insurance purposes - including kids. Many licensing options exist, depending on age & what you ride (see below).
  • Riders can race on either a CA & MTBA race license.

REGISTRATION

  • On-The-Day Entries: - Riders should pre-register as on-the-day entries are not permitted at State-level events (i.e. CX races as these are part of VICXS). Opens will have on-the-day entries as these are non-series races. Recommendation is for all riders to pre-reg.
  • Scratching: - online entrants can withdrawal with a self-serve, automated refund within EntryBoss prior to the scratching cut-off.
  • Licensing: - All riders need to be licensed to race. Either Cycling Australia or MTBA Race Competition licenses, or an on-the-day MTBA license ($30). PLEASE NOTE: No 3 Race Licenses (3RL) for State-level Events, although 3RL's can race Opens.
  • Unlicensed Riders: - Warning - lots of options coming up.... if you are unlicensed, we recommend having a look at MTBA 2 Month Free trial licenses from the MTBA website. Cycling Aust 3 Race Licenses are also an option (Open Categories only). Kids 8 & under can ride on CA Kidz recreational license or get a $5 on-the-day license. Older kids need a race license or a day license or a MTBA free trial license. One massive benefit from having a license is 24/7 insurance whilst racing & training and we encourage all unlicensed riders to join a club and get licensed purely so they are covered.
  • Time Management: - Please aim to arrive with sufficient time to rego, get ready, familarise yourself with the course, say hi to mates and to warm up. Most people need at least an hour prior their race start.

KIDS RACING:

  • Kids enter on-the-day. Pre-entry is not necessary. Kids are guaranteed a start (note: must be licensed for insurance purposes).
  • Balance Bikes and Non-Balance bikes race separately with separate courses. Non-Balance bikes will be graded by Commissaires on the day prior to race start (either by wheel size or age - to be decided based on logistics of administering the finish).
