The Element Road Series brings together the WA Racing community.

The Element enables the local racing clubs to hold a uniformed and standardised event series that will result in a high quality racing experience for new riders, all the way through to WA’s elite A Graders.

CycleSport WA has recognised the need to continue to grow the membership of the local WA clubs to ensure the recreation and high performance pathways of the future remain sound. The Element Road Series is a safe and inclusive environment that works towards the common goal of involving more people in racing and creating a positive experience for all.

GRADING

Grading is per wa.cycling.org.au

OVERALL SERIES CHAMPION

The Series winner will be decided in A, B and C grade Men and Women, Under 17, Under 15 Men and Women, and noted in D grades.

  • All races count
  • Riders will accumulate points in that grade, if moved up then 50% of points are transferable (different to the 2016/17 Ring series), not if moved down.
  • Highest Point tally wins
  • In the case of a tie, count back on result of the last race. The rider greater points of the two riders tied will be the winner of that position.
  • Points: 1st 100 points, 2nd 75 points, 3rd 55 points, 4th 40 points, 5th 30 points, 6thto 10th 20 points
  • Events outside of Peel or Metropolitan will multiply points by 1.5. For example a win in Collie is 150 points.
  • Points are awarded on finish position; DNF or DNS is zero (0) points.
  • Handicap points are awarded on finish position regardless of grade. For example Women’s B wins the Beverley, C Men comes 2nd, that’s 150 points to the Women B riders points and 112.5 points to the Men’s C Rider.
  • Junior riders points tally will be based on the position against other similar aged riders in the highest grade possible for that event. For example an Under 17 comes 5thin C grade but is the 2nd Under 17 they get the 2nd position points. (Note: we encourage race organisers to accommodate Junior riders into their events based on Cycling Australia Junior policy on distance- Under 17: 70km, Under 15: 30km, Under 13: 20km)
