Club Road Race Championships

December 6, 2013

The club will be holding it’s road race championships  – Men and Women -on Sunday June 8th at Cyclopark.

Open to the club’s 1st claim members only.

The race will be about an hour in length and will be a handicap. How will this work? Riders will be started off from least fast to fastest with the ideal outcome that all would arrive at the finish at about the same time if there weren’t any breaks.

The Race will be about an hour long with the number of laps being decided by the average time taken for the first three laps. The lap board will then be brought into play.

Once the winner has crossed the line, Male or Female, all the other riders complete the lap they are on and finish too.

The winner gets to hold the club trophy for a year and riders from 1st to 3rd receive a medal, both male and female.

The cost of hiring two of the loops – those at the Pepper Hill end of the park- is £60 and then the club has to pay out of pockect expenses to the commissaire/s and probably a 1st aider too so there will be a charge to race and for those not holding a BC racing license the purchase of ‘a day lincense’ when ‘signing on’.

Don’t be shy, give it a go and test yourself against another club member or members.

If you want to have some practice rides you could just pop down there or Mick and Ed can take you round, maybe Alex too if the bigger family he will be the dad of then allows.

The loops above are booked from 10:00 till 12:00 with racing starting at 10:30.
