Time Trials

Club 10 Mile Series

The 2019 series of club 10 mile time trials will begin on Wednesdays 15th May (8th cancelled due to weather) and will comprise approx 10 rounds (AGAIN, RIDERS WILL BE REQUESTED TO CHOOSE A DATE WHEN THEY WILL ACT AS MARSHALL FOR ONE EVENT). The “Open” 10 TT will provide an ideal opportunity to try out the course on Sunday 28th April. Obviously this can only be successful if members either partake or support this series.

Full results and final standings from the 2017/8 series can be found in “news and results”.
