2018 Western Division Road Championships
It is Bathurst Cycling Club turn to hold the Western Division Road Championships in 2018.
However a series of problem with holding road events in the Region has delayed the announcement of the senior titles however the Bathurst Junior committee has set a proposed date for the 2018 Junior Championships. However stay tuned for an announcement on the Senior Championships, and be warned it could even be aligned with the Junior Weekend.

PROPOSED 2018 JUNIOR WESTERN NSW JUNIOR ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Originally scheduled for the 7th July 2018 the Event has to be Moved - due to the Rescheduling of the Country Champs to the Day -- PLEASE NOTE The 2018 WD TITLES TO BE MOVED DUE TO COUNTRY CHAMPS ON THIS WEEKEND! NEW DATE!! Saturday 30th June -- Waiting on Sanctioning -- see Below -

NEW UPDATE
The 7th July is now the NSW Country (& Metro) Championships - so no hope of getting CNSW to sanction a Senior event on that weekend. But still hoping to the run both the Senior and Junior Champs together on Saturday the 30th June (Sulman Park is available on that day.
CNSW has given an initial OK for the 30th June.. but still having talks -- re Club Open Sanction & Club Licenses.

So At the Moment -
2018 Western Division Road Championships
PROPOSED 2018 JUNIOR WESTERN DIVISION ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Bathurst - Sulman Park, Mt Panorama.
Saturday - 30th June 2018, Reserve date for Juniors Only Saturday 7th July 2018 TIME: 8.30am sign on for a 9.00am start
AGE Divisions: U9P, U9, U11 and U13.
Note U15+ welcome to participate but no awards as part of senior competition
EVENTS: ITT, Road race and Criterium with a Point system on these three events to result in Winners
SUPPORT EVENTS: Italian pursuit if time (depart by 12 noon).

PROPOSED SENIOR Titles:
The Junior Committee are having their Presentation for their Junior WD Titles at the Bathurst Bike Park Club House, which will be a social event, with a sausage sizzle etc. It would seem logical then to run the Senior Clubs at this time to allow both championship to feed off each other, (or in other word give the parents a ride in the afternoon).

This will be little more than a Bathurst Club event and will fit inside the normal BathurstCC weekly Club Racing Traffic Management Plan. Yet due to some road works it is still not clear whether we can run a Road Race on the Weekly Club racing circuit (Cross Roads for A B and maybe C) with D Grade the Quarry Hill Course and finish back at the Bike Park for the finish and Presentation with the Juniors).

If we can’t run the event on the road we will run a Criterium Championship on the track at the Club house, However clearly this is all depending on the Road Works and the Bathurst TMP. So Currently the Proposal is -- 

PROPOSED 2018 SENIOR WESTERN DIVISION ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Bathurst – Bathurst Bike Park – Vale Road Bathurst.
Saturday - 30th June 2018, Reserve date TBC
TIME: 12:00 mid-day (closed 12:15pm) for a 12:30pm start
AGE Divisions: Senior Divisions (U19s, U23s Elite & Masters with U17s & U15s racing on Club Event Approvals).
EVENTS: either a Road race or Criterium depending on Road Conditions and Approvals (waiting on Road Works to be completed) - Graded Scratch races (4 Grades)
ENTRIES - REGISTER ONLINE ONLY – See the Bathurst Club Web Site or FaceBook Site for the link

Still Proposal Details Only as of 7th June 2018 - Still waiting on Sanctioning - Stay Tuned for more.

PROPOSED 2018 SENIOR WESTERN DIVISION ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Bathurst – Bathurst Bike Park – Vale Road Bathurst.
Saturday - 30th June 2018, (Reserve date – No Reserve Date Available at this time)
 
TIME: 12:00 mid-day registration (closed 12:15pm) for a 12:30pm start (see Note Below)
AGE Divisions: Senior Divisions (U19s, U23s Elite & Masters with U17s & U15s racing on Club Event Approvals – ie Coaches Parents & Guardians are to consider the stress on all U15 U17 riders before entering the events).
EVENTS: Road Race Championship - Graded Scratch races (4 Grades): However the BCC can change this event to an alternate Course or to a Criterium depending on Road Conditions and Approvals - (Please be aware, at this point we a waiting on CNSW sanctioning and Road Works to be completed - so the Road Race only a proposal at this point and it is possible for the course to change or be postponed on the day when the final risk assessment takes place)

ENTRIES – To Consider the Championships Handicapping & Planning All Initial Entries should be ONLINE ONLY – See the Attached Link….
https://www.webscorer.com/register?raceid=138645

There is only Money Collected on the day before the race – There is a chance you will be able to get in the event on the day (ie Last Minute Rego) if you get there a bit earlier, but it is likely you will be handicapped into a harder grade as a penalty. 

For the latest info on the event, See the Bathurst Club Web Site or their FaceBook Site. Also there will be a summary on the Western NSW Cycling Site -- http://www.nswcycling.com/forum/index.php?action=post;board=5.0

COURSE INFO:
A B & C Grade (Long Course):
Start Bathurst Bike Park (Neutral to Rail lines at Perthville) then continue straight along the Trunkey/Vale Rd to Georges Plains, where you go over the bridge and turn Right towards Trunkey Creek on the Trunkey/Vale Rd. 
Continue to the turn at the Cross Road Neutral U Turn, (approx. 34km from Bathurst) and then return to the Bike Park Finish.
Note the change to race conditions (RTZ) after Perthville (approx. 3km) which includes no more than 2 abreast to avoid any impact on local traffic.
In simple terms, it is just a 58km (Approx.) out and back course from the Bike Park. 

D Grade (Short Course):
Start Bathurst Bike Park (Neutral to Rail lines at Perthville) then continue straight on the Trunkey/Vale Rd to Georges Plains, where you go over the bridge and turn left onto Cow Flat Road. Continue to the turn at the Quarry Hill Neutral U Turn, back to Georges Plains and continue straight (SouthWest on Trunkey/Vale Road) out to the Newbridge Neutral U Turn.
Then back through Georges Plains & Perthville to the Bike Park Finish obeying the change to race conditions (RTZ) between Perthville and the Bike Park (which includes 2 abreast max to avoid any impact on local traffic). Approx. 30km.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
As per the Bathurst Cycling Club Event Management Plan there are a number of Competition Neutral Zones (CNZ) on these Courses. All Competitors must take the time to understand these CNZs and by signing on you confirm you understand the Competition Rules (especially Neutral U Turn, Neutral Zones, and Respect the Traffic Zones (RTZ) )
Obey all Road Rules – eg - please note there are a number of Rail Crossing anyone illegally passing through a Rail Crossing will be Disqualified.
This is a Test Case for events at the bike park – Due to the expected low number of entries but good cross section of competitors this event has been identified as a trial, and will be the first time a Road Event will finish at the Bathurst Bike Park. This means that competitors are to take extra care and responsibility, eg the corner into the park has a section of dirt, which all competitors must take time to observe before the event. Please Note; that the finish has been moved up the hill in the park to ensure there is no advantage attacking through the corner, as the sprint should not start until well inside the Park Boundary.
