The IDCA Evening TT series will begin again on Tuesday 30th March, Covid restrictions permitting.
A lot has changed for the 2021 season. The leagues are no longer restricted to non member riders so everyone has the chance to score points towards the leagues. Plomesgate and Orwell Velo will be promoting events along with the usual four. Wolsey will be using a new course based out of Copdock VH so 2 new clubs and three new courses! The entry fee has increased to £5. The CTT takes £3 of this in a levy for each rider so £2 goes to the clubs. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions and CTT risk assessments there are some VERY IMPORTANT instructions that riders MUST follow. Please see the rider instructions page here for details
PLEASE READ the Important Notes post so that you are aware of the rules.
A working rear light is MANDATORY for ALL events. This is now a CTT regulation so it WILL be enforced.
Things to note: These are all “Come and Try It” events which means day members no longer pay a surcharge and you don’t have to be a member of a CTT Affiliated club. 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 30th March 2021.
We are starting on Tuesday 30th March 2020 until 27th July when we switch to Thursday for the Plomesgate events. The final 2up and presentation will be at Henley on Tuesday 31st August. 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/Juveniles go free but make sure you send a parental consent form to the organiser BEFORE you ride.
Entries open 6 days before the event and are all online until Covid restrictions change. No entries or payments can be accepted on the day for the time being.
All events start at 6:30pm (1 minute starts for ALL events)
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.
