GENERAL INFORMATION & RULES

  • Teams are to consist of 6 riders with a nominated Manager/Captain (can be riding or non-riding).
  • Riders are required to present a  Cycling Australia Racing License at registration or show proof of purchase of a Cycling Australia 3 Race Membership prior to the race (3 race membership will cover the entire event). For riders who compete in several CA-sanctioned races each year, we strongly encourage purchasing the full Racing License.
  • Silver Cycling Australia Licenses, MTBA, BWA or Tri Licences are not acceptable.
  • Road Bikes only. Disc brakes are permitted. Disc wheels, TT bars, tri-spokes and aero helmets are not permitted.
  • All team members must present to all stages in matching jerseys, with the exception of professional riders who are contractually prevented from doing so.
  • Roads will be a mix of open and closed.
  • No team cars are allowed on course. Penalties apply (see Race Book).
  • No drafting with other teams on Team Time Trial stages.
  • Due to the large number of competitors it is not guaranteed that riders will be serviced by support vehicles in a timely fashion. It is advised that competitive teams formulate their own plan to supply protected riders with a spare wheel or a replacement bike from another rider within the team.
  • Riders crossing unbroken white lines (or using more than half the road when white lines are absent) will be fined and potentially disqualified.
  • Riders are required to complete each stage in order to start the next.
  • Protests must be lodged to Commissaires by Team Managers only.
  • Jerseys will be presented at the completion of relevant stages; recipient riders are required to be in attendance.
  • To respect the race and sponsors, riders are required to wear their team kit onto podiums.
  • The best spectator viewing points are at the finish lines of each stage.
