Weather Watch (again)

There is a yellow weather warning from 19:00 for thunderstorms, but no rain expected until at least 22:00 (though this does keep creeping forward).

We’ll keep an eye on it and make posts back on social media and to entered riders via RiderHQ by 5pm either way.

Racing Cancelled Tonight

Tonight’s racing is cancelled as it is still raining on and off at the track and it will not dry.

This weeks entrants will be rolled over to next week. If you would rather roll it over to another week let me know on promoter@scrl.co.uk.

The Scratch Champs will now be next week and the schedule will be updated soon.

Week 4 Weather Watch

Some light/heavy rain due this afternoon through the Brighton area (depending on whose prediction you believe), probably finished by 6. However, the conditions are not totally conducive to the track being able to dry in time if this is the case. We will have people “on the ground” to check track conditions and will endeavour to make a preliminary report around 5pm.

As always keep an eye on the website, and the social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.

If we have to call it off, the scratch champs will be held next week in place of the scheduled programme, reverting to the schedule the week after.

Fingers crossed.

A few weeks in, and some people start to want to race other categories. This is usually fine, but if you move category you need a new number.

If you want to move category you should, in the first instance, message registrations from the contact us page and make a formal request. Once it has been approved then you can enter your new category as normal and pick up a new number on race day.

Roller Racing!

Remember back at the beginning of the year when we purchased some racing rollers? Well if we want to use them over winter the time to start planning is now. We are currently in correspondence with BC about whether this would be an “official” sanctioned event(s) or not, but the main point was to have some fun and a bit of social time outside of the track league period.

With that in mind, there is a short survey to gauge interest, so please fill it out once for each person that may attend (so if you are a parent, even if not racing, please fill out once for yourself and once for each racing youth). Click here to access the survey.

Accreditation

We have had a lot of queries about accreditation from parents! As it looks like there will not be a summer series this year because no-one has stepped forward, we intend to use a couple of those Fridays if there is enough interest. This would be from 6pm as usual.

If you are interested in getting accredited this year, please fill out the form here to register your interest. Do note that this is for senior (16 years and over) riders and youth A riders only. Potentially youth B could be included but enquire with the committee first.

Week #4: “Angry” Scratch Champs

“Is it that time already?” as one committee member mentioned.

Yes we are already at the first of our four championship evenings.

For those new to the league, we host four championship evenings a year, where triple points are on offer for each of the usual top six places, along with podiums and medals for the top three. This is part of the normal racing schedule and requires no extra action on the riders part, just enter the event on rider hq as usual.

This year the scratch championships are sponsored by Angry Pablo, an up and coming on and off the bike clothing range co-founded by ex-PPYCC and SCRL rider and now Olympian Felix English.

Angry Pablo will be providing some prizes for the podium spots as well so there’s even more to play for! They are also promoting a ride-out on May 28th to The Brewhouse Project in Arundel, where they have partnered with the Arundel Brewery to launch their own Angry Pablo Pale Ale. You can read more about the event here.
