Summer Cross is non-ranking so we don't do gridding. The races are all also One Bike to make for accessible racing that's easy to get to by bike. - No pits, no second bikes to number up.
Age categories are just the same as they were for the winter 2018/2019 season. They change on 31 Aug when everyone moves up. You might have riders who are 12 and a half who think it's time to race youths, but they have to wait and there is to be no riding up.
Here is the full info on how to determine which age group;- https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/zuvvi/media/bc_files/officials/Age_Categories_2019.pdf
