Welcome to the 2017 season.
Everything stays pretty much the same this season but PLEASE READ the Important Notes post so that you are aware of the rules.
Working rear lights are MANDATORY for ALL events.
Things to note:
If you pay for a day membership please print on the signing on form that you are a Day Member.
You DO NOT change age category during the season and your category for the series is based on your age on the FIRST event of the season i.e. how old you are on the 4th April 2017
We are starting slightly later with the first 5 on the 4th April 2017 but we will still have a total of 23 events. The first 22 events will count towards the league, the last event will be a “fun” 2up 5 mile TT followed by the presentation of trophies. 12 events will count to your points total unless events get cancelled.
Juniors go free
Signing on starts at 6pm and closes at 6:40pm (i.e. 10 minutes after the first rider has started)
All events start at 6:30pm (Riders will go at 30sec intervals for the early season 5’s)
Road bike category. In general, if you are deliberately using or wearing a piece of equipment designed to be aerodynamic and you would not normally wear or ride with that piece of equipment in a road race or a club ride then you will be classed as a TT rider and not Road. This includes, but is not limited to, tri or “spinaci” bars, long or short tailed helmets specifically designed for time trials , maximum 50mm deep rimmed wheels, time trial specific frames. Nobody is out measuring wheels or scrutineering equipment, this is down to the individuals deciding for themselves what constitutes the road bike category so be honest with yourself with what is within the spirit of the competition.
