2016 WKRC ROAD RACE CHAMPIONSHIP

July 21, 2016

Dear West Kenters,

The 2016 WKRC Road Race championship will take place on Saturday 30th July at the Cyclopark road cicuit, Gravesend.

The club have booked the whole circuit from 1200 – 1500. This will give everybody ample time to set-up the event, practice, warm-up, race, warm-down, pose for photographs etc.

The format will be a one -hour scratch race for all 1st claim members only, from all categories. First across the line will be our 2016 Club Champion. There will also be an award for the highest placed Over 40 rider. The race will be held under British Cycling rules and regulations. The race is registered with BC and we have a full Race permit.

2014 saw only 9 riders take part. Last year we saw some improvement with 14 riders taking part. We hope to see an even better turn-out this year. Please do try to come along and participate. You’ll be supporting the club and regardless of where you finish, ‘It’s the taking part that counts’.

For those that haven’t ridden at Cyclopark, it’s a great circuit for this type of short ‘Crit’ type event. It’s quite testing in places, but fast and flowing, with a lovely smooth surface. It’s relatively safe, as everyone is going in the same direction and it’s traffic free.

There will be further information realeased over the next week or so, via emails and this website.

 

Regards

Paul Townley
