TVCRA 4 UP Team Time Trial Challenge

posted 3 Jun 2014, 14:28 by Mike Smith   [ updated 4 Jun 2014, 23:46 ]


As at last year it will run as a combined TVCRA Club activity (with no food afterwards).  It will be enter on the night only, provided that team members are a member of an affiliated TVCRA club they do not need to be individual members.

Enter on line here



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.


Proposed Organisation

Signing on - Team Tor 2000
Coach in Charge - Anna Ellington (Team Tor 2000)

Can everyone ensure they drive carefully and within the speed limits through Ilton when coming to the TVCRA training and races.
