WKRC, Club Road Race Championship 2015

May 31, 2015

Dear West Kenters,

 

The 2015 WKRC Road Race championships will be taking place on the 14th June at the Cyclopark road circuit, Gravesend.

The club have booked the circuit from 10am – 2pm. This will give us ample time to set-up the event, practice, warm-up, race, warm-down, pose for photographs etc.

The race will start around 12 – 12.30 and will probably be a one hour scratch race for all 1st claim members only, from ALL categories. First across the line will be our 2015 Club Champion. There will also be awards for age groups eg. Over 40, 45, 50, and so on.

Last year saw only 9 riders start the event. We hope to see a better turn-out this year, please do try to come along and participate. ‘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 flowing. It’s relatively safe, as everyone’s going in the same direction (Hopefully) and it’s traffic free.

Further info to follow.

Thanks

Paul Townley, Road Race Secretary
