The minimum race-age for entry is 18 - however please see the Categories and Rider Age section of the rules.   In some countries, riders aged as low as 16 may be allowed to enter the U23 Age Group Categories.

The rider’s race-age will be calculated as on 31 December of the year of the event. The categories available, for both Male and Female riders, are:

Elite

Single Speed

Under 23

23-29

30-34

35-39

40-44

45-49

50-54

55-59

60+

The 60+ age category may be further sub-divided into 60-64, 65-69 and 70+ at the discretion of the Race Organiser and subject to entry numbers in the categories.

A rider can only enter one category in the event. The World Champion title will only be awarded to the winners of the Elite Category (Male and Female), even if a rider from another age category comes in ahead of them. The Elite categories are open to all riders aged 18 or greater.

A final start list will be published at the close of Registration on the day before the race start, and will be available at the Race Brief.   Riders have 30 minutes after conclusion of the Race Brief to advise the Race Director of any changes.   After that time, no changes to the starting list, by rider or category, are permitted.   This assumes that the Race Brief is conducted on the day before race start.   If it is not conducted on the day before race start, then the closing time for category changes is 1800 on the day before race start.   The Rider cannot change their category on the day of the race or during the race.
