The fifth edition of the Bowral Classic has been postponed from 16-17 October 2021 to 11-12 December 2021. The decision was made due to the evolving COVID outbreak and lockdown restrictions affecting NSW. Organisers have followed the advice of NSW Health and the Australian Government and feel it is only fair to their loyal rider community to act decisively and offer as much notice of the date change as possible.

The Dirty Bowral gravel ride and The Crit will be held Saturday, 11 December, with the Gran Fondo rides (150km, 120km, 85km & 35km) being held Sunday, 12 December 2021.

All registered riders will be automatically transferred to the new date and don’t need to take any further action.

Riders who registered before 30 August and are unable to make the new date can defer their registration to Bowral Classic 2022, or receive a refund minus a $25 admin fee. These options will be available until Sunday, 26 September 2021. You may submit your request via the button below.

Bowral Classic jerseys will not be mailed out to cancelled registrations. If you choose to refund your entry, your jersey will be refunded. If you choose to defer your entry, the jersey will roll over and you will receive with your 2022 entry.

The Crit is managed by AusCycling. Please see below for further information on how to cancel your criterium entry.

How long will refunds take to be processed?

Refunds submitted by riders who registered in 2021 will be processed within 2-3 weeks from date of submission.

We no longer hold the payment details for riders who registered in 2020 and deferred their registrations to 2021. Therefore refunds will need to be processed via eftpos refund or bank transfer. This is a more time consuming process, and riders should expect to receive their refunds within 4 weeks from date of submission. 

All refund requests need to be manually processed, please bear with us and wait the advised timelines before following up on the status of your refund.

Can I transfer my entry to another Classic event?

To streamline the cancellation process, riders can not transfer their entry to a Classic event other than the 2022 Bowral Classic.

If you can not make the 2022 event date, please request a refund via the Refund Request Form.

What is the cut-off date to receive a refund?

Refund requests need to be submitted via the Refund Request Form by Sunday, 26 September 2021.

Requests received after this date will not be processed.

Please note our COVID cancellation policy still stands. If the event is cancelled or you are still unable to attend the event due to border closures on December 11, we will offer you a refund or deferral to Bowral Classic 2022.

Will I receive my Bowral Classic event jersey or loyalty offers?

Bowral Classic event jerseys & loyalty offers will not be mailed out to cancelled riders. If you choose to defer your registration, this will roll over and you will receive the jersey in 2022. If you request a refund, the jersey will be refunded in full.

All loyalty offers will roll over if you choose to defer your registration.

I ordered a Black Sheep x Classics jersey, when will I receive this?
