Midweek TT Championship 2020

We hope to run a full midweek TT championship this year following the easing of lockdown COVID-19 restrictions.  Round one will commence on 12th May 2021 on Ryeland Lane. This year we are continuing with a championship for road bikes which will be run with the same format as last year: only road racing legal machinery allowed so no very deep section rims, disc wheels or tri bars and no aero helmets: you and your bike must be legal for a road race.

As usual points will be scored as last year for Scratch, Handicap, Vets on standard and Road with the best 8 rounds points counting towards the final placings. There will also be overall prizes for the best U18 rider and best Woman.

Members should note that to be eligible for any award they must marshall at a minimum of two rounds during the 12 week series

The entry fee is £4-00 for members producing a 2021 membership (first and second claim) and £5-00 for any other riders.  Juniors under 18 will have to provide a parental consent form, but will get free admission to the races.  Entry must be booked online (see events listed on website and Facebook) and no on the day entry due to COVID-19 risk assessment.  All riders require a working rear light.  No light = no ride

This more technical course now has a new start point which is the same as the current finish meaning a tough uphill to begin on the B4197, very fast to Hill Side then left into the lanes, rolling and twisting, until joining the A443 ¾ mile west of Holt Heath. The final stretch then gradually rises all the way to Gt Witley to finish 100yds along the B4197.
