  • To qualify athletes, need to finish a qualification race in a time which is within 115% of the winner in their age group.

  • Any athlete finishing within the 4 highest places as outlined above but outside 115% of the winner of their age-group will only be offered a place at the Team Manager’s discretion.
  • Any athlete finishing outside the automatic places but inside 115% of the winner of their age-group may still be able to qualify with a rolldown place. Details of rolldown places can be found here

* Race may be draft legal. Please click here for draft legal race guidance. Please click here for draft legal race rules overview

**Please Note: As the qualification races take place in the year preceding the Championships, qualification is based on your finishing time compared to those athletes who will be in your age group the year of the Championships. If you are moving up an age group in 2024, then your qualification will be based on where your finishing time would have placed you in the age-group category you will be racing for in 2024. Please note that you may finish in the top four in your age group category but an athlete moving into that age group can potentially push you out of a qualifying position if their time is faster. Please see point 8.3 in the Terms and Conditions.
