The 2012/2013 season also introduced two Women's grades as part of a four race Series. This video captures the highlights on one race night.

Licences are required.
(All riders should bring their current licence or receipted application form to be able to race. We adopt a strict policy of No Licence No Race.)
Format: All grades D->A. Junior & E grade race on 9th Oct, 6th Nov, 4th Dec, 8th Jan, 5th Feb and 5th Mar.
If you raced last season you will be expected to race in the same grade this season. Lack of training is everyone's reason to go down a grade, and doesn't wash with the handicapper. If you have another justifiable reason to change grades please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least two days prior to your intended race and we will evaluate.
If you race at another location in Melbourne please enter the same grade at the Kew races.
