Following on from details already published on the website regarding 2017 Club Championships at 50-mile, 100-mile, 12-hour and 24-hour, we now have details of the Triangle Series for 2017 and the remaining Championship events.
Sheldon Howcroft has as usual been working extremely hard putting together the next Series dates and these are attached. The first 12 1/2 is on Thursday 27th April starting at 7.00 pm at the usual place next to The Wharfedale Inn.
Please remember that only first-claim (and paid-up) members are eligible for points and championships. This was discussed at the committee meeting 3rd August 2016 and that rule is not changing for 2017.
All these events need marshalling and all riders are being asked to volunter for at least 2 events and of course more if they wish. That’s over 200 marshalling jobs to cover over the series. If we can’t cover an event with marshals the event will have to be cancelled so you’ll all need to do your bit please. If you are listed as marshalling at a particular event but can’t make it please let Sheldon and racing secretary John Barnett know as soon as possible so alternative arrangements can be made. Contact details are listed in the attached document.
We anticipate someone from Yorkshire District Cycling Time Trials to be there at some time checking up so it is imperative that marshalls are in place.
It goes without saying that we’re very grateful to Sheldon for all the work he continues to put into the Triangle Series. We’re also grateful to Mark Scatchard of MAS Design Consultants for his generous sponsorship of the series and to The Wharfedale for allowing us to use their car park.
If you’d like to come and have a go but are unsure of what it all entails then why not come along to the Introduction to Time Trialling evening being held 20th February at the clubhouse starting at 7.30? Event host Christine Bell says ‘The evening is aimed at complete novices, people who have never/rarely done a time trial but are interested in having a go at the club time trials’ and experienced racers will be there to provide advice.
Plenty of time to get training before the Triangle Series starts!
