 *NB – If the course is shortened due to road works, the start time and intervals will be adjusted accordingly.

Welcome to our Racing Weekend. If you are new to the sport it may help if we explain the two types of racing that we are presenting:

·         In Time Trials, riders start at one minute intervals and must always ride unpaced. The handicap allowances are based on a rider’s previous best time.

·         In APR’s, riders start in groups according to ability, tactics play a very important part, and the first over the line wins.

We hope that you enjoy the weekend’s sport.
