2023 CORC XC Series Round 4 Sparrow Hill

August 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is the fourth round of the 2023 CORC XC club season. There are 5 rounds planned for 2023, in addition to the ACT Championships later in the year. These are fun races open to riders of a wide range of abilities. For XC racing some courses will be harder than others, and to make this clearer to everybody we have a grading system. Easy, for the flatter, less technical trails (think Sparrow hill), medium for courses that have more climbing and technical features (think some of heartbreaker and little seymour) and hard for courses that are, how do we say this, just hard…

This year we have decided to simplify things by going back to Grades rather than age categories. We believe this will provide better racing by grouping riders of similar abilities together, irrespective of age. The concept is simple, and largely based on self selection, with a few rules:

  • To avoid juniors racing excessive lengths we have implemented minimum age limits to some categories.
  • Pick your category based on your speed and endurance. We will try to aim for the target race times below, but may adjust lap numbers based on the course.
  • Don’t race up a grade to try to get a longer race. The intent of these races are to be shorter cross country races, not marathon races. Once the leader in each category crosses the finish line all riders can complete the lap they are on, but not start a new lap.
  • Sometimes it’s not easy to know which category to choose. Don’t stress it if you get it wrong, you can always change category for the next race. If you race up or down on purpose we may kindly bump you up or down:)
