VENUE


WE KICK OFF THE SERIES WITH OUR MTB RACE AT BEECRAIGS COUNTRY PARK. IT’S THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR THE EVENT AND WE HAVE A COUPLE OF GREAT COURSES TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE NATURAL TERRAIN AND TEST OUR RIDERS SKILL & FITNESS.WE ASK EVERYONE TO TREAT THE PARK WITH RESPECT AND MAKE SURE WE LEAVE NOTHING BUT TYRE TRACKS.THANKS TO TRACEY AND THE BEECRAIGS TEAM FOR SUPPORTING THE CLARION AND HELPING US HOLD THE EVENT IN THE PARK.

YOUTH RACES

WE WILL HOLD RACES FOR ALL OF OUR RIDERS STARTING WITH YOUTH E AND MOVING THROUGH THE EVENING BEFORE FINISHING THE EVENINGS RACING WITH THE YOUTH A AND ADULT CATEGORIES.EVERY AGE CATEGORY WILL HAVE THEIR OWN RACE WITH BOTH MALE AND FEMALE RACES BEING RUN CONCURRENTLY.WE PLAN TO BE CLEARED UP AND ON OUR WAY HOME BY 9:30PM.

ADULT RACES

WE WANT TO GIVE EVERYONE IN THE CLUB A CHANCE TO PUT THEIR SKILLS TO THE TEST SO WE WILL BE HOLDING A FUN ADULT RACE THAT WILL RUN ALONGSIDE THE YOUTH A RACE. ENTRIES WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE NIGHT BUT WE ASK THAT YOU NOTE INTEREST ON THE FACE BOOK PAGE OR HERE ON THE FORUM IF POSSIBLE TO HELP OUR LAP COUNTERS OUT.ADULTS CAN ENTER SOLO OR THEY CAN ENTER AS PART OF A PAIR, JUST AS WE DID AT THE SANTA CX.

RACE LICENCE

WE ARE WAITING FOR FINAL CONFIRMATION ON THE LICENCE SITUATION BUT WE BELIEVE THAT YOUTH A, B AND ADULT RIDERS MUST HAVE A VALID BRITISH CYCLING RACE LICENCE TO TAKE PART. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE THEN A DAY LICENSE CAN BE PURCHASED ON THE NIGHT. YOUTH C, D AND E RIDERS WILL NOT REQUIRE A RACE LICENCE. THIS POSITION WILL BE CONFIRMED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
