Week #9 Racing
Regardless of what I said last week, this is actually the halfway point of the season. Looks to be a scorcher! No rain in sight!
This week we will have a new race: The Snowball.
This is like a tempo race but with increasing points. So first over the line on lap one gets one point. First over the line on lap two gets two points, and so on. Tied points are decided on final lap placings.
See the schedule here.
Week #10 will be sprint champs week. We can’t publish the schedule in advance until we know how many riders we have for the competition, but sign up is now open here.
There is information on the event in RiderHQ, but for those who have not raced our Sprint Championships before, here’s a quick rundown:
- Senior riders (and youth riding in senior categories) must elect to enter the sprint champs OR race the regular league schedule. They cannot do both. Sprint riders can only race the “non sprint” league races once the sprint final has completed.
- Senior sprint riders ride a qualifier 200M flying sprint to seed the heats.
- Youth minor and major do not need to sign up separately. All riders are automatically entered and seeded for sprint heats with their league entry.
- All riders must still enter week #10 on Rider HQ as usual to pay their fee.
Free Track Time This Friday
We have another accreditation session this Friday. We always need some experienced riders to give the new riders a proper feel of riding in a bunch, so please come along and have some free pedal time!
If you know anyone who might want to join the accreditation, they can still enter here.
