Prizes

These prizes are the minimum which will be provided. Individual events can include additional prizes.   Cash prizes, medals, finisher momentos and jerseys are the responsibility of the individual race organiser to provide. Prizes are equal for Male and Female and are to be issued irrespective of the number of riders in a category.

The winner of each category will receive a category winner’s jersey.   The Elite Male and Elite Female World Champions will receive two WEMBO Elite World Champions jerseys each.   The WEMBO World Champions jersey can (it is not mandatory) be worn by the WEMBO world champions in 24 hour events until the end of the next WEMBO World Solo 24 hour world championships race.  At the end of that race, they must revert to their team kit or other cycling clothing, even if they have won the world championships again, because the next world champions jersey will be different.   Specifically, the previous world championships jersey cannot be worn for any media, interviews, presentation or podium activities at the next WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour Championships after that race has finished.

Medals will be given down to 3rd place in each category.   All riders in the event will receive a finisher momento.

In addition, the Elite Categories will receive cash prizes down to 10th place as listed in the table below.

  • If the Event Host is paying the prizes then they will be paid in the currency of the host country of the race.   If the host country currency is not listed in the table, then the value of the prizes will be converted from the prizemoney in Australian Dollars shown in the table below, at the exchange rate applicable to the bank(s) used by the Event Host on the Friday immediately before the race.
  • If WEMBO is paying the prizes then they will be paid in the currency of the host country of the race for amounts less than $AUD 500 equivalent, and by internaitonal bank transfer for other amounts.

If a rider requires money to be transferred into an account, or the prize is paid by internatioal bank transfer, then any exchange charges and bank fees will be deducted from the prize value.

In the event that the host country's taxation rules require tax to be deducted or withheld from prizemoney and the prizemoney is being paid by the Event Host, the prizemoney shall be adjusted by the Event Host so that the amount shown in the prizemoney table below is the amount received by the riders after taxes or amounts withheld.

The Elite Male and Elite Female World Champions will also receive free entry and a single return economy airfare to the next year's WEMBO World Solo 24Hr Championships. This is conditional on them entering that event to defend their title and cannot be transferred to another rider nor held over for subsequent years. This airfare is up to a maximum value of $AUD 2500 equivalent paid at the OzForex exchange rate on the day the payment is made by WEMBO. The rider must enter the next event and submit their air travel receipt to WEMBO. They will then be reimbursed the airfare or the maximum value, whichever is the lesser. This prize is for the airfare element only and does not include excess baggage charges.   These airfares are the responsibility of WEMBO to provide.   The free entry is the responsibility of the hosting organisation to provide.

WEMBO recommends that Elite World Champions who have received this airfare prize component take out insurance in the event that they are unable to compete in the world championships for which the airfare prize has been paid.   WEMBO reserves the right to have this airfare prize element repaid to WEMBO if the rider does not start and compete in the applicable WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour Championships.

Cash prizes may be issued either at presentations or on the Monday following the race for large amounts.   Any outstanding amounts owing to WEMBO by prizewinners, or the teams of organisations they represent or are part of, will be deducted from the rider's prizemoney before it is paid.   If a rider requires money to be transferred into an account, then any exchange charges and bank fees will be deducted from the prize value.
