RD IV - Game Ready Therapy Points Race - OCT 9

For round four we are back at Pakapakanthi for the Game Ready Therapy Points Race! First introduced to the Super Series in 2019, the criterium circuit points race has become a decisive round for riders wanting to shake up the overall GC standings. The points race is electrifying viewing for spectators, as points are awarded at regular intervals after sprints. In this race, every 4 laps of Vic Park, the first rider over the line will be awarded 5 points, the second awarded 3 points, third 2 points and fourth 1 point. Double points are awarded at the finish of the final lap (10, 6, 4, 2), and the winner of the race is the one with the highest number of points at the end of the race – not necessarily the one who crosses the line first at the finish!

We’re over the moon to have the support of a good friend of many elite cyclists in the Adelaide racing scene and in particular our Olympians, in Dan Chudleigh of Game Ready Therapy! Winners in the Senior grades at R4 will be awarded vouchers to go and see Chuds and the team at GRT to get a sports massage from some of the best. The Game Ready Therapy team will be on hand during the day’s racing as well so you can make sure you’re performing (or recovering!) at your best.

For this Round, the elite grades will race a general criterium - their points race being the last round of the series!
