Event: Kids Enduro

Venue: Smithfield MTB Park

Date: 18th September 2021

Format: Enduro/stage race

Commissaire  Race Director: Larry Lanza

Organiser: Cairns MTB Club, Ride Fundamentals & Discovery Cycles

GENERAL INFORMATION

Categories: As Follows

3 x categories- As per AUS CYCLING guidelines all categories are mixed gender.

(5-7), (8-10), (11-13). Ages are decided on the calendar year of birth. So if, for example, a 7yo enters and they’re turning 8 in October, they will be entered into the 8-10 category. If a rider is particularly good then we can assess and perhaps bump him or her up an age level (bear in mind that rider limitations regarding their ages carry forward to the upgraded level that the rider has now entered. Also, please bear in mind that we don’t really want to do this as it usually gets parents questioning everything that we do after that.. Remember that a “rules is rules” approach to race management is always better). Even if we do end up bumping up riders, we will not be placing any riders in lower age categories. If a rider or parent feels that they’re not good enough for their respective category then they shouldn’t be racing yet.

Event Registration will be open from 1-2 weeks before the event and each category will be capped at 20 competitors, so we will not have more than 60 total competitors and there will be no allowance for on the day registration.

Race Stage Layout: As follows

(5-7)

STAGE 1- 2x laps pump track

STAGE 2- Red Belly

(8-10)

STAGE 1- MP39 from shuttle road & Stumpies

STAGE 2- CusCus

STAGE 3- Red Belly

(11-13)

STAGE 1- MP39 from shuttle road & Stumpies

STAGE 2- CusCus

STAGE 3- Black Snake

STAGE 4- Red Belly

Signage will be up 1-2 weeks before the event so riders can train however track tape will only be up on the day of the race. If people are unsure of the stages they’ll simply have to look at the park map and/or explore. If a stage starts or finishes a few meters before or after the location that they had been training, or if there are sections that they thought were or were not in the stage then it’s a simple case of “tough luck”. Remember this is a kids event, not the UCI World Cup. It’s to get kids acquainted with racing and its social and supportive aspects, not to entice competitive behaviors beyond their years, in them or their parents.

Equipment Requirements: As follows

(11-13) REQUIREMENTS

Full-face helmet

Full-finger gloves

Knee guards

Long sleeve jersey (jersey must cover elbows at all times)

(8-10) REQUIREMENTS

If a rider can’t meet the requirements above they will not be eligible to race.

Course inspection: A course inspection will be completed by the event organisers 1-2 weeks prior to the event. During this inspection the organisers will have to identify any issues or improvements that require attention and then with the Cairns MTB Clubs’ approval have them rectified before the start of the event, if necessary to do so.

EVENT FACILITIES

Event management will take place on the day from the Cairns MTB Club House on McGregor Road, across from A.J.Hackett Bungie Tower. Parking for all competitors is directly adjacent from the Club House and toilet facilities are also from the club house. Once the event is completed the organisers will hold a complimentary sausage sizzle for all competitors and their families. Soft drinks will be available for purchase for $2 from the clubhouse.

Medical and first aid will be headed up at the event by Peter Elephant (APRA Registration No. MED0001626926) and will be supported by Cassie Abel.

RACE DAY

Plate number and race seeding will be organised once nominations have closed the night before the event. We will not be accepting any on-the-day nominations as it can be messy to organise. Plate collection will be from 7:30-7:45am on the day followed by a race briefing by the event organisers just before 8:00am. We will be organising the stage-chaperones (who will also be the start-timers) along with marshals armed with radios and specific locations to go to, and Stage-finish timers. It is worth noting that the event organisers will be mentioning in the race briefing that any antisocial behaviours from competitors or guardians will be met with a penalty or disqualification. Remember, although it is a race, we are very much focusing on the fun and social aspects of it.

Race timing will be done using start and finish stopwatch times recorded onto paper and entered into an excel spreadsheet. Once the times are collated the results will be announced during a podium ceremony for each of the three categories and then printed and put on display at the club house. All race results will be deemed as final by the race director.

Each category will have a 5-place podium however only the top three placed competitors of each category will receive a trophy. As we will not be using any of the MTB club’s electronic timing equipment the organisers will be supplying one-off smaller-sized kids race plates that each competitor can keep as a souvenir after the race.

Barring any extreme weather events, we will be racing in rain or sunshine.
