The Road Race Season Pass is back for the Road Race Season between April and October 2016. 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 great value for money. With 17 races in the calendar, riders who purchase a season pass will not only save money the will not be required to forgo racing to marshal at club races. Members who don’t purchase season passes will be asked to marshal at selected events on the GCC calendar.
Season passes are open to all riders of all clubs.
Alternatively, members can continue to enter and pay on a casual basis. Season Passes and Single Race entry fees are listed below:
Season Race Pass
|Senior Men||$120 ($170 with transponder)|
|Juniors||$100 (racing seniors)|
|Juniors||$80 (training and racing)|
|Family Pass||$240 (all inclusive)|
Note that holders 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.
Casual Race Entry
|Road Races||$15 pre-entered online / $20 race day entry|
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’re 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. GCC will determine which races require marshals and will give advanced warning of this requirement.
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.
