Chip timing.
ARE ALL RACES CHIP TIMED?
Yes – all races from U8- V50 will be chip timed for the 2018 season with results available on a screen at the event and live updated online and on mobile devices whether at teh event or watching from abroad!
HOW DO CHIPS WORK?
All riders will buy a chip at their first race for £5. This chip can be retained to swap for a new one at any subsequent race. All races use new chips as they are coded against race numbers for pre entered and entries on the day. Riders either swap their chip from a previous race for their new one or pay £5.
WHEN DO I COLLECT MY CHIP
Each event has a fresh batch of activated chips associated with the allocated race numbers.
Registered riders will collect their new number and chip at registration at every race they enter. The chip and race number will be provided in exchange for the chip from the previous event. If they forget their chip, they will have to pay £5
Registered riders chips act as a token week to week which they will exchange for a live chip activated for that event.
Numbers and chips are collected either in exchange for a chip or £5 – simple choice – remember your chip!
Non registered riders entering online or entries on the day will buy a chip for £5 which is returned at the end of the race when the chip is returned or can be retained to use in a future league event.
WHERE DO I ATTACH MY CHIP?
Chips will be attached to a riders shoe. This is because in cyclo-cross riders will change bikes and so it would not work with bike mounted chips as used in MTB and road races

First Aid. – Gerrard Brooks – MJB First Aid Services will be based in the race HQ.

Refreshments. – Hot and cold refreshments will be adjacent to the Rutland Room by TASTE OUTSIDE CATERING.

Toilet Facilities. – There will be porta loos near The Rutland Room, there are other toilets facilities across the far side of the lake.

Spectators.
You are very welcome to explore the estate. Please be aware that some sections of the course do not require course marking tape. The course is designed so that in certain areas you can see the competitors 3 or 4 times from one spot. Please use the clearly marked crossing points in the finish meadow.

Finally….Thank you to members and friends of WVCC for help prior to and on the day.

Welland Valley CC have been very fortunate that for over 25 years we have been able to use the splendid grounds of Misterton Hall for youth cycling activities and set up today’s course over a period of time.

Mrs Craven loves hosting this and other cycling events. Her enjoyment comes from watching you all participate and the friendliness of the sport. Mrs Craven can normally be found on car park duty mid-morning! If you get the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ please do.
Have a cracking days racing and enjoy.

Kind regards
Dean Barnett
