Steamlined Registration Paperwork
Register and Pay, or Register and Pay Later
It would be helpful to have everyone register on BikeReg.com. We’re offering an option where you can input your information and thne pay whenever you race.
The advantage to using the on-line no fee option is you won’t have to fill out an entry form. So if you think there is any chance you will race at least once at Ault Park you are encouraged to go ahead and fill out your information on-line. There is no penalty for entering on-line and never racing.
If prepaying your registration fees on-line you will not have to indicate the specific week(s) you will race.
So prepay for 3 weeks and ride any 3 of the 6 available weeks. No refunds for unused payments.

The original series was founded in 1985 by Andy Callahan the original owner of Oakley Cycles, and managed for nearly 20 years by Chief Referee Chuck Doll. In 2004 Bill Lorenz took over the series when Oakley Cycles dropped their involvement and it became a part of the QCW repertorie of events.
All riders and spectators are welcome to this friendly and competitive event. Located on a slope the 1km oval course rises and descends approximately 75 feet per lap. The surface is fairly smooth with one slight corner and one speedy downhill with a couple of serious bumps, followed by an uphill sprint with the sun at your back. It is also closed to traffic and perfect for both new and experienced racers.Dates and Times
