Round 1: Metropolitan Championships: Sunday 19 May
How does the QCRS work?
Riders enter the series with equal points available for every round. The top 20 riders to finish each round will gain points. These points are accumulated throughout the series, and the rider with the most points in the final round will be crowned the inaugural 2019 Queensland Classic Road Series champion.
Who can race in the QCRS?
All rounds of the QRCS will cater for Women's A, B, C, and D grade, as well as Men A, B, C and Masters Men A, B, C, and D grade. Riders will race in their standard grade as per the current Cycling Queensland Grading System. In the current grading system, when a rider accumulates enough points they are moved up a grade, and will race in the higher grade in the next race. If a rider moves up a grade during the QCRS, 50% of the riders accumulated series points will be transferred.
All rides will be competing for the highly anticipated QCRS leader’s jersey. Each rider that is leading their grade will receive a leader’s jersey that they will be required to wear in the following round. At the end of the series, the series winner from each grade will receive a trophy, and the glory of being the inaugural winner of the 2019 QCRS.
