2017 Race League – T Minus 1 week

The 2017 Race Club League opens in just one week, with the format similar to 2016. Once again the season will see us host a Club League and a separate Visitors League with a variety of formats over varying terrains and no doubt in varying weather. Rice’s Hotel Poyntzpass has once again came on board to assist with sponsorship and both League winners will receive a £40 Voucher to be used at Rice’s Hotel.

All Nine events will count towards the Visitors League (which is non handicapped), with the best seven results of nine used in the Club League (handicapped). Full League rules are available to be read on the appropriate league pages.

Club riders must wear club jerseys in order to be given a placing. Although not compulsory for visitors, we would encourage riders to represent their respective clubs in their club colours as this assists us in identifying riders crossing the line.

Entry fees are once again £1, with sign on from 6.30pm and start at 7.00pmunless otherwise stated. All are very welcome with Limited License or higher required to participate.

We hope to see many friends again this year and look forward to the momentum of friendly and competitive rivalry.

Please note that race one is a 2 Up TTT and excludes the use of TT Specific Bikes. Road Bikes are compulsory though all other aero assisting aids may be used. No singular entry’s will be permitted.
