Friday Night Summer Series (FNSS)

Background

  • The series started in 1992. The series was originally called “The Inter Club Mountain Bike Summer Series“. WVCC was a founder member club.
  • Name changed to FNSS to attract more riders
  • 28th year this year – 2nd oldest MTB series in the world (the world champs are a year older!)
  • Run by one of our sponsors – Neil Holman of George Halls Cycle Centre

Format

  • Friday evenings from May to August (as Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings were already taken by club events).
  • Sign-on and course inspection 6pm-7pm
  • 7.15pm start – 4 starts by category 1-2 mins apart.
  • 50-60 minutes + a leader lap – similar to a cyclocross race. Everyone finishes on the same lap after the winner has crossed the line.
  • Non-BC. Insured by NFU to keep the cost down.
  • All levels of riders
  • Most of these venues are on private land, so riding is not permitted at other times.

Equipment Needed

  • MTBs only.
  • Most race on hardtails
  • No spare bikes, no pits, no bike changes

Entry

  • Entry on the line is standard.
  • Age and gender categories from 12 years to 60 years +

  • £12 adults, £5 under 16s
  • No BC membership needed

Results

  • Results, times and lap times posted overnight and available on Facebook the next morning
  • Best 6 results to count for the series
