VC Melyd & Rhyl CC Time Trial Calendar 2017

VC Melyd & Rhyl CC Time Trial Calendar 2017

Following the season opening Brass Monkey event on New Years Day we are now to present the North Wales Time Trial Calendar for the Velo Club Melyd & Rhyl Cycling Club.

After a great season last year with the usual awards and champions – this year is no exception – a full season to acrue not just personal bests, compete against your clubmates, but also to compete for points and as Club Champion for your specific age group.

New for this year, starting Wednesday 1st of March 2017 we will be moving the usual Tuesday Night Club Ride to Wednesday nights. Thus allowing all those unable to attend to head over and take part as currently this is an issue.

While the Hill Climbs and the longer events may not be for everyone – the Championship Events are worthy of your support – play to your strengths people – and appreciate that lower attendaces mean higher points are up for grabs .. dont let the weather put you off! So lets start with those Championship dates for your diaries.

North Wales Time Trials

North Wales Time Trials

Since 2009 VC Melyd and Rhyl have combined their resources to run road cycling time trials in the Denbigh area. These are club events ( Type B ) that are run in accordance with the rules and guidance provided by the National governing body for Time Trials – Cycling Time Trials ( CTT ). See CTT regulations for details.

Location

The locations of the start and meeting points where signing on takes place are shown under the Find Us section of the Rhyl CC website.

Signing on

Riders should arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time to sign on.  Early event start times are used at the start and end of the season for reasons of safety. Check the start times on the Time Trial Calendar shown on the VC Melyd & Rhyl CC Time Trial Facebook Group.

There is a 40 rider limit.  Arrive and sign-on early to avoid disappointment. Entry to eligible riders is on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

To reduce waiting time and to help the organisers start at the scheduled start time, race numbers will be allocated at the sign-on. The first person to sign on will normally be allocated race number ‘1’ , the second rider race number ‘2’ etc.

Eligibility

You must be a member of a CTT affiliated club and your membership must be up to date. The only exception is for first-time riders taking part in a ‘Come and Try It’ event ( Hill Climb D0/11 and 5 mile D1/5 only ).

Riders must be a minimum of 12 years of age on the day of the event. Young riders aged 12 to 17 years of age will need to ensure that a ‘Parental Consent’ form is submitted to the event organiser when signing  on.  A PDF version  from the  CTT website. Parents/Guardians do not need to be present at the event.

All club time trials are entered on the day by payment in cash to the event organiser.

Time Trial League

To be eligible to earn league points you must be a member of either VC Melyd or Rhyl CC and your name must be included on the membership lists maintained by the Club Secretaries.

For 2016 there will be 26 events counting towards the League standings. The first event takes place on New Years Day and the last is early in September. 30 points are awarded to the winner of each event, 29 points for second …..and 1 point for 30 th place and for all finishers.  In the interim and final standings each riders 15 best scores will be aggregated to determine his/her total score.

The event organiser, timekeepers and marshalls will be present at the signing on and at the start to help you and answer any questions you may have. Regular riders are expected to help in these roles on at least two occasions during the league year. The names of the all helpers will be listed in the Time Trial Calendar. If there are less than two names per event on the latest published version of the calendar this means further help is needed. Please contact the Time Trial secretaries to book a slot as a helper:-

Ashley Roberts ( Rhyl CC Time Trial Sec. ) ashley_openroads@yahoo.co.uk

Andy Malcolm ( VC Melyd Time Trial Sec. ) andymalcolm60@yahoo.co.uk

The results of each event will be published in the Results section of this website usually within 24 hours of each event taking place. The league standings will also be updated and published.   A photo of the results sheet is usually posted on the facebook page a few minutes after the event is completed.
