This Friday 8th March we will be holding another of our racenights, this time its with a Cyclocross format, so we will be on the grass and every rider will get at least two races. These will still suit ALL of our youth riders, but with the added attraction of some riders from other clubs joining us for a few races, making it ideal entry level racing, and suitable for getting started with competitive events. Each event will be in age groups, so even our youngest will be able to take part, and the oldest will riders will be under 16 age group (racing seperately to the younger ones)
Please note that if any of you would like to borrow a club bike, please help us by being there by 6.15
Entry will be £4 on the day from 6.00pm with races to start at 6.30 and finish around 8:00 - 8:15 with a couple of spot prizes and the series prizes will be awarded at the final event on 10th May. Hopefully our youngsters will all want to try these events, they seem to have a competitve streak even when not racing, so it should make a nice change to our usual format.
We could do with a few helpers on the night, so if you are able to help please let me know, preferably in advance.
- Riders, the more the merrier for good racing. All youth riders welcome.
- Cakes, always very welcome
- Refreshments - ideally 2 - 3 to help out with them
- Signing on - two people required
- Timekeepers - three people required
- Demo rider to lead the riders round the course
- Helpers for setting up, could do with a couple of helpers who could ideally get there early
The details are on the British Cycling website, but as its entry on the night things are not too different to normal.
This will be at our usual venue The Embankment Athletic Track, Bishops Road, PE1 5BW.
There will be two more events in the series on Fridays 12th April & 10th May.
As always any questions please ask.
Just to make you aware that we have Wattbikes in the club and they can be made available for training on a Friday evening when we are at the athletic track. To ensure availability i'll need to know in advance who wants to use them. The cost for adults or youths of secondary school age is the regular £4 or £3 for members, however if an adult is also paying for a youth to attend the session they will only be charged £1 to minimise the burden on the family budget. Wattbike racenights will be charged separately as required to cover our costs.
This Friday we will be at the Athletic Track on Bishops Road from 6:30 - 7:30. For those who would like to ride the rollers this will be an ideal opportunity for youths and any adults who might be interested.
For the remainder we will be using the track once again this week, so if you have a choice then smooth road tyres would be great.
