Championship Programme

The draft race programme can be found here. Please note this is provisional and subject to revision after the close of entries.

Entry Criteria

These Championships are open to centre team entries only.

Elite championship entries have now closed. Age Group championship entries close no later than 12 February 2013 and no late entries shall be accepted.

All entries are to be done online.

Entries are binding on the Centre and the riders.

Entrants are obliged to ride in the events for which they are entered, and any resultant repecharge, semi final or final, unless prevented by injury or illness. Withdrawn riders may be replaced by another rider entered in any event in the same category.

Each entry must have the approval of the entrant.

If a Centre has named 3 or more time qualifiers, then only one additional entry will be permitted.

Riders should be seeded in all events (i.e. 1, 2, 3, etc) and Centre Champions must also be noted, as per the online entry form. 

A Pool system will operate for those riders who are unable to represent their centre in the team events. Composite teams will be made up by the Commissaires’ Panel (or their delegated authority) from entries submitted by Team managers in order to create evenly matched teams.

Reserve riders may be entered for Age Group championship bunch events only, but should have no expectation of riding. Reserves will be entered at the sole discretion of the Commissaires’ Panel and only if additional heats are not required. In the event of scratchings, riders from the withdrawn rider’s centre will have first rights. Centres may enter a maximum of one reserve rider per bunch event.

The entry form must have all particulars completed. Incomplete entries will be declined.

A minimum of 5 entries, representing 3 centres, are required for medals to be awarded.
