I am the captain of my soul.     
I am the master of my fate:     
How charged with punishments the scroll,     
It matters not how strait the gate,     

William Ernest Henley. 1849–1903 – “Invictus”

The start lists are now available and are attached at the end of this manifest. If you have any queries about your grading, then please contact us directly. There will be NO on the day entries, no taking a friends spot, no taking the spot of a rider who hasn’t signed in. This is a NSW Open and all riders must be pre-entered.

The race start/finish and sign on will all be conducted at the Elvina Trail Car Park.

We wish all riders the best of luck and courage for race day.

Sign on commences at 6.15 am at the Elvina Walking Track Carpark.

Race Start Times are as follows:

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BEING ON THE START LINE AT YOUR START TIME.

Please be aware that all riders who are wishing to drive onto the course must be on West Head Road by 6:30am. The road will be closed to all vehicles from this time and drivers wishing to go onto the course will have to wait for a official convoy car to take them along the course. This is for the safety of riders and a requirement of NSW Police. There will be no exceptions made. Prior to 6:30am, we will have a marshal at the entry and you simply advise them that you are here for the race.

If you choose to park on West Head Road, please do not park within 500 metres of the finish line or within the car park at Elvina since this will be used for riders and officials during the race.

Course Strava Route – https://www.strava.com/routes/4862422 – 1 lap

The finish line is heading in a northerly direction opposite the start line.

Prize money in excess of $2,000 will be on offer across the various grades.

This race is entirely contained within a National Park, a home for our native animals & an area subject to high public visitation. Accordingly, special rules apply. DOGS & OTHER DOMESTIC PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED. This is not a place to bring rover for a run, or to set free the fourteen stray cats that have taken over your back yard. If you have a special someone coming along to cheer you on, let them know that they should leave man’s best friend at home.

Litter 
Now this is a big issue – National Parks approval is on the basis that we leave the Park without any litter. Getting a race this close to Sydney has been very difficult and time consuming. We don’t want to lose this race. When you have had a gel, put the wrapper either in your back pocket, stick it in your leg gripper or eat it. Do anything but throw it on the course. We don’t want our volunteers having to walk the course after the race collecting your wrappers. It is possible to put used gel wrappers in your jersey pocket, we have tested it. Littering is an offence with a $300 penalty


Courtesy
Members of the public are users of the park. Please be courteous at all times, notwithstanding the pressures of racing for the honour of winning a race at West Head.

Road Rules
This is a public road, and accordingly usual road rules apply. It is important that riders remain to the left of the centre line & as close to the LH side as possible at all times.  Whilst the road is closed to the public except when supervised, cars may be present on course, and vehicle convoys will be taking place.

Please don’t ride on the footpaths within the park or anywhere there is a sign that says you should dismount. It is an offence to ride in pedestrian only areas.
