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!

Results

The roadworks indicated on North Crawley High Street were cleared before our event, which was good. What was less good was the generally cool temperatures, though at least the sun eventually came out.

Congratulations to Andy for the win.

Thanks go to Dick (signs) and Katja, Steph and Geoff (timekeeping). Dick and Geoff set off to rescue Martyn who had punctured out on the course and was DNF. Thanks to Mark's wife, we have a gallery of photos taken near the start after riders joined the main road - see below the results tables.

Now that we've completed seven events, I'll post League tables in the next day or so once I've sorted out my spreadsheet. The League is based on riders' best seven placings in the series.
