Pursuits Competition

Week 17 (that’s 4th August, not the coming Wednesday) will see our annual pursuits competition.

Entry

  • Entry will be by pre-sign up only, but it is free.
  • The competition is open to Senior riders and any youth riding in the senior categories only.
  • Eligible youth may use any equipment as is valid for their category according to current BC regulations.
  • It is not open to youth minor or major riders.
  • Entries will close on the TUESDAY before at 6pm.
  • Up to the closing you will be able to change your mind and remove your name from the entry list yourself using RiderHQ.
  • After the closing time you are committed and are not eligible for the non-pursuit races.
  • Click here to enter.

Conditions

  • Entry limited to 16 riders (4 heats).
  • Once full a “waiting list” of 8 riders will be available on RiderHQ to fill gaps of people who drop out.
  • If there are only 8 riders or less we will not run qualifiers and final placings will be decided on times alone.
  • Championship placings are from 1st down to 9th. 9th place will be fastest non-qualifier.
  • Entrants for the pursuit may NOT race in the non-pursuiter races regardless of qualifying status.

Do please note the “non pursuit” races in the calendar. Even if you are eliminated you cannot ride these races. If you fail to qualify it could be a long wait.

Volunteers

We will also require more volunteers than usual. There is a separate spreadsheet here so please sign up yourself or get someone who can help to sign up.

If we can’t fill the spots we can’t go ahead, as we will not have time to run heats with less than 4 riders. We might be able to run it with the riders themselves filling a couple of roles but this depends on numbers (you would basically need a full 16) and everyone would have to accept that other riders were in fact responsible for recording their time.

Volunteers Again:

We are still short a couple volunteers this week at track league for marshalling. Please add your name to the spreadsheet here.

More importantly, we WILL be short a number of regulars over the coming weeks so please add your name to the future weeks in the spreadsheet too (the tabs at the bottom have all the remaining weeks).

Especially important is the job of judging and i-pad camera operator which will be empty at various points over the final weeks, including next week (week 16). If you can help out and would like some practice, please come and speak to Ben at the finish line before racing starts and he can help get you up to speed.

Remember. No Volunteers = No Racing.
