After the popularity of the Summer Season Pass we have reintroduced this concept for the Road Race season between April and October. Once again the season pass will see you pre-entered into all events GCC host on the Road Race Calendar and preclude you from having to do race day marshalling duty.
The Season Race Pass represents extraordinary value for money – there are 16 races in the calendar, so members will save hundreds of dollars.
Alternatively, members can continue to enter and pay on a casual basis. Race entry fees are listed below:
|Senior Men||$120 ($170 with transponder)|
Note that holders (GCC Members) of a Senior Road Race Pass are required to have their own transponder. Transponders can be purchased for $50 through the club. More information about transponder ownership can be found here: http://geelongcycling.com/events/transponders/
Casual Race Entry Senior:
|Road Races||$20 pre entered – $25 race day entry|
Less $5 for riders with personal transponders.
Commissaire and Marshalling Duties
In order to bolster participation at races, while removing the frustrations of marshaling, Geelong Cycling Club will arrange a Race Commissaire, marshalls and follow cars. This is a significant undertaking by the Club, and one which requires a significant reinvestment of revenue that is generated from race entry. It also means there are no excuses to not race!
Members who choose not to purchase a season pass will be asked do one marshalling duty during the road race season.
Prizes and Prize Money
Again the club will not be awarding small amounts of prize money for each grade of every race. Instead, there will be trophies and other mementos awarded. With the main focus on series prizes within the season calendar.
The “Donald Wilson” Road Race Aggregate winner will be the rider with the highest combined points scored in 10 of the 14 races in the series.
The total pool will depend upon the number of Season Race Passes sold, in addition to casual race entries – particularly from racers from other clubs.
