Winter Racing Season – Grading System

April 11, 2017

Beginning in April 2017 for the 2017 winter racing season, the grading and points systems will operate with some minor changes. The system is detailed below.

During the winter racing season at HEZ, points will be allocated as follows:

1st place: 5 points

2nd place: 4 points

3rd place: 3 points

4th place: 1 point

If you receive 10 points in a 6 month period, you will be moved up to the next grade. Any points you have currently will carry over into the winter season and this new system.

There will be no grade changes on race days, so please don’t bother asking. If you do need to discuss your grade, please email the handicap committee, at

Points can only be accumulated by racing at Hunter District Cycling Club events.
