The Racing Update

The following information gives details about the sign-on location and adverse weather contingency plans. Please read it carefully and pass the details on where necessary. Racing will commence at the usual time - 2 pm to 2.15 pm.
Nominations will be taken at the start / finish venue, which is about 750 metres along the Gladstone / Monto road from the Dawson Highway intersection. Riders should park clear of the actual finish line and area leading in to the finish line. As there are no toilet facilities on hand, plan your trip to include a stop in Calliope at the shopping centre, servo or public facilities on the way through Calliope. The start line is about 4km west from the town.
Mick Newell has confirmed the course is 14.6km out / 14.6km back, making 29.2km for D & E grades and 58.4km for A, B and C Grades.
In the event of adverse weather conditions, a decision about racing will be made as close as possible to 11 am, using information available from BOM weather radar images, and this will be posted on the website.
