Just a quick update from Steve Shimmin, as we approach the first event.
We have a fantastic entry of 72 competitors to date. I can still accommodate any late Series entries so if you know anyone who would like race tell them to contact me……the more the merrier!
The initial registration will be a little hectic, so can I ask all that still have outstanding paperwork to make an effort to get it to me prior to the event if possible. I am Start Timekeeper at the 10 tomorrow and will be happy to take any forms and especially entry fees!
The weather forecast for Friday is for showers so we should be ok as long as the showers don’t last for periods of 3 hours! It’s not ideal for tomorrow though.
Can I ask all newcomers to bunch racing to make themselves known to me? I would like to brief you all prior to the start to ensure that you are comfortable. Nerves are expected but there is no reason to fear your baptism to road racing I want you all to have good fun and be safe…oh and possibly win!
To all the ‘old hands’ and newcomers please take responsibility for riding sensibly during the race. Do not stray over the road centre line, pay particular attention on the entrance and exit of corners and always be aware of traffic and pedestrians. Be respectful to other road users when warming up and let them go about their daily business without blocking the road by riding in groups etc. Always obey the instructions of marshals and officials.
Thanks one again to Bikestyle for sponsoring the series. We will let you know the venue and date of the prize presentation shortly.
