For this particular series, Cycling Victoria allows exceptions to the following:

  • Composite wheels are allowed with a maximum rim depth of 50mm
  • Roll Out - Whilst VICS Summer series does not enforce junior gear restrictions for entrants, Cycling Victoria encourages entrants to abide by the Cycling Australia Technical Regulations for Junior Cyclists
  • Clip-on time trial bars will be permitted for the Individual and Teams Time Trial. Time Trial bikes are not permitted. 

Categories - Male and Female Combined

Eight grades of racing will be split across the Junior and Senior Categories. Senior grades include all riders in the J17-19 categories for the year of 2020, likewise junior grades J15 and below for the year of 2020. Grading of entrants will be determined during the round one Individual Time Trial at Casey Fields, with further grading at the discretion of Cycling Victoria based on previous results, known capabilities and grade sizes. If a rider is upgraded the rider will carry over half of their accumulated points in the series.
