Event Overview

We are excited to announce that we will be racing on a brand new Criterium track at Unanderra, the same one to be used in the AusCycling Masters and Juniors Nationals Championships!

Wollongong City Council has funded a $1.6 million purpose-built closed-circuit track located next to the Illawarra Velodrome at Lindsay Park Unanderra. The asphalt track is 6 meters wide and predominantly flat so should illicit some fast, but safe, racing conditions.

Event Rules

Sign on from 7:45, with racing at 8:30am sharp!

Categories – Male & Female in the following age groups (age as of date of competition, 22/10/2022)

  • 18-29
  • 30-39
  • 40-49
  • 50-59
  • 60+

Event Description

Format will be a 40min crit + 2 laps. Males and females, all ages, will race for the same amount of time.

Depending on numbers, we will group the age groups and genders to create 3 – 4 main race groups. So, whilst you may be in the same race as another age group or gender, you will only compete against others in your age group within that race. But, to make it even more interesting, we will also allocate medals to the top three positions of each group!

Example, we may put Male 40-49, 50-59 and 60+ together in the same race. Medals will be awarded to the first three riders of each category to cross the line. Overall medals will then be awarded to the first three riders across the line, irrespective of age category.

The groupings will be determined by competitor numbers but will likely be;

Race 1 – Male 18-29 and Male 30-39

Race 2 – Male 40-49, 50-59 and 60+

Race 3 – Female 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+
