HOW DO WE GRADE OUR RIDERS?
Tiny Tots - 100mt
For anyone under 7 years of age, we welcome balance bikes, BMX and training wheels to get them off and racing.
Super Tots - 200mt
The next group are the Super Tots which cater for riders with or without training wheels who can ride up to distances up to 400 meters and for ages up to around 7 years of age.
8Years - 13Years
Riders 8 years of age or higher will be racing with track bikes and grouped on experience and ability, Junior Grades are Under 9, 11 or 13 Categories,
Seniors for Under 15 and above.
Seniors are graded from E to A. We welcome all levels and encourage any rider looking to progress their skills and grade, but we also have riders who enjoy a social roll in E grade each week.
The DCC is a supportive club and can offer track bikes for loan for any newbies to cycling. Please see a committee member down at the track on Thursday nights if interested. All new riders will need to attend information/training sessions before being able to race on a Tuesday night so that we can assess your skills until they are at a suitable level to race. We maintain a very high safety standard and seek all riders both Junior and Senior to support this.
