Race Announcement

btbsAdmin | 23/04/2015 20:00:00

We are pleased to announce a further Sunday race meeting at Thruxton Circuit. The date is Sunday 12th July, with the racing starting at 10.00am. This time it is a meeting with a difference, as we have been listening to rider feedback and have a different race programme to usual.

Our women riders have been asking for a race restricted to Cat 3 and Cat 4 riders. British Cycling have been supporting this initiative but we don't think it should be at the expense of the Cat 1 and Cat 2 riders. We are therefore staging TWO women's races, which should give races more commensurate with the ability of the riders taking part. We are happy to trial this and will make it a feature of all our Sunday promotions if the support is there. So Ladies, it's over to you to back up the words with deeds and come and race. Please also tell your friends about our plans and hopefully that will translate into increased numbers.

Additionally we are trying something completely new with two Vets races for the men. Whilst still having a Cat 3/Cat 4 race and an E/1/2 race, we thought there would be interest, given the number of older riders in these races usually, to have Vets races in the 40-49 and 50+ categories. This is a bit of a gamble for us as we think the demand will be there but are not really sure. However if it proves to be a success then we will look to include similar races in future events.

Details of all races can be found here

Please share this post and lets hope to see another well supported meeting.
