The North Bucks Road Club Time Trial League

John Smith Memorial Series

The Club is delighted to announce the resumption of our Club TT League. We will start with the event on 14th April, and we are making changes to how we manage our events to ensure we are compliant with CTT guidance. Entries will be required in advance of the event, with payment online.

Coronavirus precautions: We will provide detailed guidance on how we plan to organise this event to ensure that riders and officials are protected. NBRC Coronavirus Precautions

New CTT Regulations: All competitors must have a functional rear light on their bicycle. No light, no ride. This regulation would have been in force for 2020, but we cancelled our events due to the pandemic!

All are welcome at our club time trials: make sure you turn up in time to collect your number (entries will be made online). You'll need a mechanically sound bike and a bike helmet. A working rear light is now required by CTT regulations. You need to be 12 or over to ride time trials. If you are under 18 you will need permission from a parent or guardian to take part (download a permission form in pdf format and in Word format).

Each of our courses has a route description and a risk assessment. Make sure you have familiarised yourself with the course!

(Since this is the first event, League positions (which are calculated on best 7 placings in the series) are basically the same as the results above, so I haven't included a current League table this week.)

We are delighted to see the resumption of NBRC club time trials. Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, we hadn't put on a TT since the New Year's Day '10' in 2020. We have made some changes to the organisation, including online entries via ResultsBase, and some coronavirus precautions as advised by CTT.

After a last minute panic about reported roadworks on the course, the event went ahead as planned. On the evening, conditions were a bit cool but clear and with a light wind. 21 riders started out of an entry of 26 riders. Congratulations to Gavin for an excellent ride to take first place and to Aaron for first place on standard. I'd also like to note the excellent rides by two younger riders, Oscar and Molli. Special mention has to be made of the rider who turned up without shorts, dashed off to Decathlon and made it back in time to start. He might prefer anonymity!

Next week we're at Astwood, I'll add the link to the website announcement when entries open.
