The rider who has gained the most points at the end of the series, is the series winner in their grade. In the event of a tie, the rider who placed hirer on the last race will be placed higher.

Worlds Fastest Motopaced Lap

Cycling Queensland has an exciting invite event where riders are motopaced for 3 laps and then timed for the 4th lap which will hopefully produce the fastest laps ever seen on the velodrome. Due to the time constraint there will be no more than 3 attempts a round and a maximum of 18 riders attempting the challenge. At the end of the series, the fastest overall time will be awarded the champion.

As there is limited space, this is an invite only event. If you are interested, please fill in the expression of interest form here:
