For the 2017/18 Dirt Crit series, all participants must be MTBA members. This includes all juniors. MTBA membership ensures all riders are covered for personal accident and public liability insurance (including when not at Dirt Crits). MTBA does have an eight week free trial which allows members to experience MTBA membership. Details of the MTBA free eight week trial can be found at: http://www.mtba.asn.au/membership/free-trial-membership/
In addition to MTBA insurance Dirt Crit fees are:
Kids in F and G grades = free.
All other categories (A to E grades) = $5.
Discount rate: A season pass for all Dirt Crit events can be purchased for $50. CORC is also offering $100 max fee for families for a season pass.
The CORC Dirt Crits are broken into seven categories as follows:
A = 5 laps long course
B = 4 laps long course
C = 3 laps long course
D = 2 laps long course
E = 1 lap long course
F = 2 laps short course
G = 1 lap short course (typically balance bikes)
Number of laps may be changed to suit course lengths. Anyone can enter any category. However, each participant can only race one category. The organisers reserve the right to request riders to change categories.
Scoring and call up
A rider’s best 12 results count towards their season score using the following point system:
As with last year, riders will be called up to the start line before each race. The order of call up will be based on current running point scores.
Season prizes will be presented to the top three riders in each category.
