The usual Club evening series of Time Trials has been planned for 2022 . It will consist of a series of evening 10 mile TTs and of course a Hill Climb at the end of the season, a Sunday 25 miler has also been scheduled. Full details of the entry system will be provided in due course.
We have tried to foresee as many problems as possible and have alternative courses in place in case of roadworks etc, unfortunately we still have not managed to gain control over the weather, however, we did manage an almost full programme of Club evening events last year.
We are hoping to have use of an online entry system along with a return to the HQ at Wickham Community Centre. There will be no cash payments on the night but we are expecting to be able to take on the night card entries.
The entry fees for 2022 Club events will be £6 per ride for all riders over the age of 18 and £4 per ride for all riders under 18.
In order to be able to run these events we need a team of Timekeepers and helpers, each event normally requires 2 – 3 Timekeepers, 1 sign on and results person, 1 scruteneer/marshal, 1 pusher, 1 number caller and an additional marshal.
Although we do have a team of regular helpers we are currently down on numbers, this includes a senior Timekeeper, if anyone is interested in become timekeeper information and of course assistance is readily available.
I would especially ask any Racing or Ex Racing members who are not currently competing to put something back into such a rewarding sport and enable the next generation of riders to benefit from your experience.
If you are able to help please get in touch with the Time Trial Organiser or any committee member.
Please come along and give Time Trialing a go, you may even enjoy it, the Club evening events are a good introduction to this element of the sport and you will be encouraged and supported by other likeminded members.
FWCC Time Trials are run under Cycling Time Trials (CTT) rules and regulations for level B (club) time trials – details can be found at http://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/articles/view/11
