Racing 2016

 

Temporary Link to 2017 Racing Page

A description of the club time trialing competitions has been written to explain how you can win using open and club events.

A description of the road and circuit racing trophy competitions explains the rules for awarding winners.  And this forum post has some hints and tips on how to enter events and compete in them.

A consolidated list of the Club Time Trial Programme for 2016 is in the Club Handbook and all events have been loaded into the Club Calendar.  A separate listing of the events can also be found here (with each event Start Time).

Member discussions on the topic of racing can be found on the Racing Forum.

Closed Circuit Road Racing

Members may wish to note that there is a series of closed circuit races which are held on Thursday nights at Castle Combe Race Circuit during the summer. These are not Chippenham and District Wheelers events.  Details can be found on the British Cycling website at:
http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/ 

navigate to the Events tab and search for Castle Combe and South using the filters.

Any news stories on racing for publication on the web site are welcome, please send these to committee@chippenhamwheelers.org.

 

Club Evening Time Trial Events

The Club runs Time Trials on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer.  The diary shows what course is being riden, the distance, the registration time and the start time.  (Diary entries should be opened for full details as the headline detail does not show the changing registration time throughout the season.)

Entry fees for Club Evening Time Trials are:

  • Adult Members and Adult Second Claim Members - £3
  • Adult Non Members - £4
  • Youth/Juvenile Members - No fee
  • Youth / Juvenile Second Claim and Non Members - £2 (to cover CTT levy)

Note a CTT £2 levy is paid for all riders entering an event.

The onus is on riders to declare their correct status / affiliation on entering the event as the officials do not necessarily know all entrants or have knowldge of changes in status.

Note: The total shows points accrued from best results for event type.  A rider needs one event from each colour type - green, blue, orange and red to count towards their qualifying total.  Riders who have not ridden all the qualifying event types once an event has taken place will not have a total.  If there is an X in the final column that rider is not able to complete the series, having missed one or more qualifying events and there being none left at the missing distance(s).  

Ted Barlow Cup (WTTA Hardrider Series)

The dates for the WTTA Hardrider Series are on the WTTA Website (or will be):
http://www.wtta-hardriders.org.uk/index.html

and all events are annotated as WTTA Hardrider in the CTT Handbook.  The list is summarised on page 133.  A copy of the CTT Handbook is held in the club house.
