Fanatastic turnout last night for the Team Trial Trail and some great times. Many thanks to all those that helped with signing-on, timekeepers, pushers off and lap counters.
The start times for the Team Time Trial have now been sorted, and to try and get everyone finished before its too late the interval between teams has been changed to 1m 30 secs from the usual 2 mins (1 min for Youths). Please be at the start 5 mins before your start time, also please warm up in the middle of the airfield NOT on the circuit.
Entry to the airfield is from 6.45, The Youths need to be ready to go asap as they are starting at 7pm.
Anyone wanting a late entry please sign on straight away as you will be starting early.
Entry is £12 per senior team, £6 for youths - please bring the correct money if possible.
In order to speed up entry to the gate, can everyone complete and sign this form please
When - Thursday 25th June
As in previous years the Team Trial will run as a combined TVCRA Club activity. It is open to members of all TVCRA affiliated clubs (NB they do not need to be individual members of TVCRA)
Enter on line here please
Youths - 2 Up TT and 3 laps
Seniors - 4 Up (max) and 6 laps
As it’s a combined organised event each TVCRA club that is entering a team must provide at least one helper (more if you are entering more than one team). The helper(s) will then need to sign on before any of their club team(s) - I think Anna will be doing the signing on (so no helper no team entry)
This is a coached challenge - so each team will received written coaching points of how to ride a team time trial upon signing on, if there are any questions please ask one of the coaches on site!
If you can let me know if your club is entering any teams and you have a helper (or two), it would be appreciated.
