The IDCA Evening TT series will begin again on Tuesday 28th March 2023
Everything the same in 2023. The leagues are no longer restricted to non member riders so everyone has the chance to score points towards the leagues. The same six clubs will be promoting events and Plomesgate will be hosting an additional 25 mile TT in early July. The entry fee remains at £5. The CTT takes £3 of this in a levy for each rider so £2 goes to the clubs. Please see the rider instructions page here
PLEASE READ the Important Notes post so that you are aware of the rules.
A working FRONT and REAR light and HELMETs are 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 29th March 2022.
We are starting on Tuesday 28th March 2023 until 25th July when we switch to Thursday for the Plomesgate events. The final 2up and presentation will be at Henley on Tuesday 29th August. There is an additional 25mile TT on Thursday 6th July on the Tunstall course. We will have a total of 24 events. The first 23 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. Please remember that vehicles preceding, accompanying or following competitors, even juveniles, is not allowed.
Entries open 6 days before the event and and although we can now accept entries on the day it is much easier to administer entries in advance so preference will be given to advance entries.
All events start at 6:30pm (30 sec starts for the 1st two event then 1 minute starts for all the rest)
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, helmets with visors, maximum 65mm 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.
