Cycling Victoria with the support of the Carnegie Caulfield Cycling Club is excited to announce the 2020 Towards Zero Victorian Junior Road Series (Virtual) will begin this weekend with a test event on Sunday September 6.

This will be a six race series that precisely replicates the real roads used in previous VJRS events. Races for U15 and U17 will be full length races, expected to be up to two hours long. U11 and U13 events will be shorter in length. 

The series will begin at 9am on Sunday with a test event followed by weekly races at 9am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, with points being awarded for each event in the series except the test event. After the final stage of the VJRS (Virtual) the person with the highest overall points for their grade will be declared the VJRS (Virtual) Champion. Points for the series will be awarded to the results on the line: 25, 20, 16, 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1 etc.

The series will utilise the RGT Race Simulator. RGT is a free simulator and was the platform Cycling Australia used for the National Junior Road Series events. There are a number of resources available that describe how to get set-up on the platform such as this video from Peel District CC

Once the RGT is set up it provides a great, stable virtual racing platform with an excellent real-world experience. 

All events are free however, riders wishing to participate in a VJRS (Virtual) event will need either an International UCI road licence (J11, J13, J15 or J17) or a 2020 Cycling Australia RACE membership (J11, J13, J15 or J17).
