  • 1.3 km closed circuit (the Long Crit Loop) on Australia’s newest dedicated bicycle racing facility!
  • U15 and U17 juniors are permitted to race with the senior grades.
  • All grades are limited to 35 competitors.
  • Competitors MUST attend the race briefing at 6.55 pm in the marshalling area.
  • There will be multiple grades on the circuit at the one time. The faster bunch is expected to pass a slower bunch on the left-hand side. The bunch being passed must adopt a neutral race condition until the pass is completed.
  • Grades may be combined if the number of riders entered is not conducive to quality racing.
  • Note: Racing may be cancelled if conditions are hazardous due to wet tarmac, lighting failure, recalcitrant wildlife or other unforeseen circumstances. Entrants can expect a refund of race fees in the event of race cancellation.


As a guide, if you have not raced a crit with us before, your initial grading upon entry is as per your current CQ Road Grading.

Please refer to the table below for your expected grade. You may request a different grade upon entry, e.g. based on your crit grading elsewhere. Please clearly explain your reasons for our Handicapper upon entry.

If you have not managed to get a CQ grading yet, you may rely on your Muzz grading or equivalent. Just let the Handicapper know.

It is the responsibility of each rider to enter a suitable grade.

Ipswich Cycling Club appreciates your patience while we establish fair gradings.
