Your Team Manager for this event is Jason Stack. Jason will be assisted by Mark & Claire Coppin, Mark & Joanne Wood & Chris Taylor. All will be recognisable by their white event T-Shirts or red event Hoodies.
The location is North car park – levels 7-9. This area is only accessible through the WINGS checkpoint. This is a computerised checkpoint where you will be required to scan your wristband and bike band in and out. Our Country Team area will be allocated and signed posted. ONLY people with appropriate accreditation and riders wearing a rider wristband will be allowed in the Team Area. Parents will not be allowed to enter with riders. Riders must wear their wrist band at all times (replacement wrist bands will be charged).
This is located on the concourse between the pit and pre-staging areas to allow parents to see their children on the way to pre-staging before they race. There will be no access to the Team Area or Pre staging for parents, only people with the appropriate accreditation will be able to access these areas. Riders should use this entrance to access the arena seating on all days EXCEPT Friday and Saturday Evening.
