At a recent Commissaire meeting, the following guidelines were agreed to ensure consistency across the entire 2018/19 SCX series.
Women / Vet 50 / Junior Male Gridding
Women will be gridded at the front
Vet 50 gridded next
Junior Male gridded next
Each of the 3 above categories will be started separately, with a suitable gap depending on course conditions and requirements to minimise the risk of bottlenecks immediately after start.
Vet 40 Male & Senior Male Gridding
Gridding as per previous seasons, using Series Standings.
- U16 male at front
- U14 male next
- U16 female next
- U14 female next
Males in the above categories will be started together. Females will be started after a suitable gap depending on course conditions and requirements.
This will continue to be run as a fun event in line with BC and SC regulations
Race will be split into U12/10 & U8
There will be no official gridding, but field will be arranged based on age and size to ensure safety of all riders (parents and organising clubs are encouraged to support and help out with this exercise to ensure safety) There will be no man made obstacles on any U12 courses
To avoid congestion and ensure safety in pits Pit crew must be over 16 years of age Pit crew will be limited to 2 people per rider / racer Where possible, if a number of riders from the same team are in the same race, combined pit crews (or 2 ) is encouraged
