Bluebell Time Trial news
The latest club standings upto 10th August can be found here
There is just one week to go now in the Bluebell series, can Jonathan Toma be caught? Please note the start time for the Bluebell TT's in August adjusts to 6.45 PM.
These events are possible for anyone with a bike that can cope with a bit of off road riding. Most events have a mixture of cross bikes and mountain bikes, and as its run over a circuit no one can get left behind (well apart from on the first lap). The races are normally from 40 minutes to one hour (less for the younger riders). To compliment these events there will also be a few more off road rides coming up.
So if you fancy a change, why not give one of these a try. Many are local events, and there is one most weekends up to Christmas, and a few into the new year.
Please note the entry details for each event, and that if you want to score in a league series you should note the specific requirements of that league. As we are an Eastern region club, but also cose to the boundary with Central and the Lincolnshire league, you may choose to pick individual events that suit you, or compete in one league throughout the season. If you are unsure please ask.
As well as these league events we will be holding our own YOUTH ONLY cross races on 30th September, 28th October, 25th November & on 11th November there will be another GIRLS ONLY RACENIGHT, so please ride, help out, bring a friend or just help us to spread the word about these nights.
Please have a look through the spreadsheet for an excellent selection of local(ish) events.
So whether you fancy being the next cross expert like Sven Nys (left) or you think you're more of a crowd pleaser, why not give it a go?
