Early Season Racing: League & Cross-Crit

Time to get your early season racing plans in place. We’ve got news of a couple of different racing options coming up in the next few months. More details closer to the events.

Cross Crits – we are also hoping to run a club “Cross Crit” race on a Saturday morning in March/April. The idea is to use the track at Brooksbank as the base and have a tarmac-based Cyclocross style race. We want to run this as a test race to explore the possibilities of this format. We will use the tarmac track but will include dismounts, bunny hops, additional hairpins and possibly the odd slippery grass corner.

Track league racing on Brooksbank Circuit – we have provisional dates for a road based track league on Monday evenings from 7:00pm  Dates: 11th May, 25th May, 8th June,22ndJune, 6th July and 20th July. We hope to have 4 groups racing. Group 1 Youth A and B (under 14 and under 16), Group 2 Senior Novice (based on BC 4th Cat), Group 3 Senior (based on BC Cat 3), Group 4 Senior Women. The format will be 3-4 races per group per evening. Races based on traditional “Track” races, such as the Points, Scratch and Devil, but run on the tarmac Brooksbank circuit.
