Aggregate points awarded to all riders.
1st 7 points, 2nd 5, 3rd 4, 4th 3, 5th 2, then one point to every other finisher. (Points will be scaled back where fields are less than 5 riders)
Mid race sprint lap bonus points will also be available. 3, 2, 1. (Points will be scaled back where fields are less than 3 riders)
The series is raced over 5 rounds, the worst two rounds will be dropped. This has been done as not everyone can make all races.
Race lengths and circuits will be determined on the night. If we have bad weather the rounds will be moved forward to the next week.
Thursday Twilight Crits. (non – series races)
Twilight races are held every Thursday night during the daylight savings period. Registration is between 6:00pm – 6:15pm with racing commencing at 6:30pm. Entry is $6 via EntryBoss.
Race formats will generally be graded crits but other formats are used from time to time.
The GSCC Thursday crits are a great way to learn on a technical course, the atmosphere is casual but the racing can be pretty intense. That said, with the grading there’s a race pace for everyone from beginners to state title holders.
