Welcome

Following much consultation with British Cycling HQ the Castle Combe Summer Series will be taking place this year, with a few changes!The new risk assessment allows us to run two senior races only, so we have opted to run a Regional C+ 3/4 and a Regional C+ E,1/2/3 race. Ladies can enter either of the above races. The decision to drop the recently introduced ladies only race was made by the BC South regional board. (Don't shoot the messenger!)

The risk assessment allows a maximum number of riders on the circuit at any one time of 140, with no one race greater than 100 riders. For the first couple of weeks the field sizes will be set at 90 for the 3/4's and 50 for the E/1/2/3's. This will be reviewed regularly.

Online entry will be available via the BC website and will close at 10am on each race day. This system is being set up over the next few days. We recommend pre entry to avoid disappointment!! We will not be able to answer any e mails regarding the possibility of entries on the day sent to the event e mail address.

Entry fees remain at £15 for seniors and £5 for Youth. Where space allows entry on the night will be charged at £18 and £7 respectively. Sign on will open at 6pm. Please be patient with the sign on team - these events are run by volunteers - most of whom will have rushed from their work straight to the event to help out.

If you know of anyone who may like to help now and again, please let us know. Signing on for the Youth races is often quite hectic so a few extra hands would be nice!

Youth races start at 7pm - Youth riders can collect their prize money from the sign on room after the races have finished and the result has been confirmed.

The senior races start from 7.30 with a time interval between each category.

Once the races have finished please return your number to the sign on room and collect your licence.

Please put your number in the appropriate order pile - this saves time for our helpers when packing up at the end of the evening, not having to re sort for next week from a scattered pile of numbers!

The Senior series is based on an overall points, so prizes will be presented at the end of the series when the points are calculated.

Each week's results will be published on the British Cycling site and the Summer Series website. We try to get as many placings as possible but always the first 10 in the seniors and at least top 3 in the youths - girls and boys. The results are sent to BC by the Monday following each race at the latest.
