Time

Short track and long track will be open from about 5 pm, although check with the organisers if you are unclear where it goes. We recommend that all participants ride the track at least once prior to racing. Registration will open from 5:30 pm with kids racing commencing from 5.50 pm. If you do not have a season pass you will need to register, collect a number and pay before each event. Please return the race numbers at the end of each event so that we can keep costs down.

Cost

For the 2018/19 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 and a family season pass is $100. If you have a season pass, you will automatically be registered for each event.

Categories

The CORC Dirt Crits are broken into seven categories as follows:

A = normally 5 laps long course

B = normally 4 laps long course

C = normally 3 laps long course

D = normally 2 laps long course

E = either 1 lap long course or modified short course – info will be advertised beforehand or at registration

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:
