EVENING TIME TRIALS 2019

The Lancaster CC/Salt Ayre Cog Set evening time trials 2019, will take place on the Salt Ayre circuit every Thursday at 7pm from  21nd March until 19th September inclusive.  The trackside lighting will be utilised at the beginning and end of the season and other evenings as conditions dictate.

Each week there will be two separate time trials, starting with a two mile time trial (2½ laps of the track) and a six mile time trial (7½ laps) for riders aged 16 and under.  Riders entering in advance for the 2 mile time trial will be given early timeslots with 6 milers later.  Those entering on the day will fill in any slots that occur in the start order.  

This will be followed by the senior time trial for riders over the age of 16 (and any more experienced younger riders who want to ride the 10 mile time trial). Riders can compete any of the three set distances (2, 6, 10 miles) and those who enter in advance will be given early start times for the 2 and 6 mile TT’s followed by those riders doing the full 10 mile time trial with those who enter on the night filling in any vacant timeslots. With electronic timing system it is permissible for riders to change their distances during the course of the event. Thus a less experienced rider may enter for 2 or 6 miles and decide to continue for the full 10 miles. Likewise rider may enter 10 miles and due to mechanical problems or overestimation of their fitness decide to drop down to one of the lower distances instead of being recorded as DNF. This facility however must not be used by more experienced riders to facilitate an early start in the field. It is designed to encourage younger/less experienced riders to safely step up the distance.

All riders must sign on the appropriate start sheet and anybody who hasn’t signed on with 10 minutes to their start time will be classed as DNS and their timeslot may be given to a rider already present and waiting.

 

The preferred way of entering the Time Trial is via TEAMER.
