All riders must hold a current Cycling Australia Gold License to be eligible to enter the upperlimb.com Cunningham Classic.
Entries are made based on your handicapped grade, and separate races are run for each grade.
In the unlikely event that insufficient entries are received for any grade, riders will be placed in to a race with another grade of similar speed / ability and still compete for prizes for their own grade. (For example- should separate grades be combined in to one race, both grades will still compete for the TREK New Farm King / Queen of the Mountain, DWBH Homewares Most Impressive Rider and upperlimb.com Winner and places. All decisions will be made at the discretion of the Club, with assistance from the Chief Commissaire and State Handicapper.

The organising committee of the upperlimb.com Cunningham Classic works very hard to keep entry fees as low as possible for this iconic race. We really do - it's agenda item #1 for every single meeting. No other Cycling Queensland race in the state is as complex, expensive or difficult to stage.
We appreciate the incredible support that we receive from the cycling community, and we're proud to be able to host this iconic race and do our bit to contribute to the sport. It's a joint effort that contributes to a great racing calendar in Queensland - and we're proud to just be a small part of it. With your support, we look forward to working with everyone to continue delivering this event for many years to come!
The upperlimb.com Cunningham Classic is one of the most popular races on the Cycling Queensland calendar. As a result of it's popularity, the Kangaroo Point Cycling Club is required to cap entries to all grades to ensure that our goal to provide a safe, fair and competitive event can be achieved.
The Kangaroo Point Cycling Club will update the Event's Facebook Page with further information on any field caps once entries have opened to ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to enter before the maximum group sizes are reached.
To avoid disappointment given our 2014, 2015 & 2016 races had multiple sell-out grades, we suggest that you consider entering the event as soon as possible.
