Scratching Policy

Self-service scratching includes an automated refund. Scratching closes at the same time as entries. Use the SCRATCH button on the race entry page to scratch. 

  • 1.3km closed circuit (the Long Crit Loop) on Australia's newest dedicated bicycle racing facility.

  • U15 and U17 juniors are permitted to race with the senior grades.

  • All grades are limited to 35 competitors.

  • Competitors MUST attend the race briefing at 6.55pm in the marshalling area.

  • There will be multiple grades on the circuit at the one time. The faster bunch is expected to pass a slower bunch on the left-hand side. The bunch being passed must adopt a neutral race condition until the pass is completed.

  • Grades may be combined if the number of riders entered is not conducive to quality racing.

  • Note: Racing may be cancelled if conditions are hazardous due to wet tarmac, lighting failure, recalcitrant wildlife or other unforeseen circumstances. Entrants can expect a refund of race fees in the event of race cancellation.


As a guide, if you have not raced a crit with us before, your initial grading upon entry is as per your current CQ Road Grading. 


Please refer to the table below for your expected grade. You may request a different grade upon entry, e.g. based on your crit grading elsewhere. Please clearly explain your reasons for our Handicapper upon entry.


If you have not managed to get a CQ grading yet, you may rely on your Muzza grading or equivalent. Just let the Handicapper know.


It is the responsibility of each rider to enter a suitable grade.


Ipswich Cycling Club appreciates your patience while we establish fair gradings. 

  • You must leave a current CA Race licence at the registration desk while you are in possession of a race number. Alternatively, you may present paperwork from CA confirming your licence is pending issues; e.g. a receipt.

  • 3 Day Race licences can be purchased online if you do not have a current CA licence.
