The series will run on the same basis as in previous years but the team competition will be slightly different.  In order to make the competition more inclusive, a team’s overall points total will now be the 18 highest individual points scores by its members, with each rider able to contribute a maximum of 6 points scores.


There’s also a new CTT West District Facebook page www.facebook.com/CTTWestDistrict for Time Trial related discussions in the West.  This isn’t specific to the Hardriders Series.


Please pass the above details onto any of your fellow club members who may be interested.


I’ve obtained your email address from the West DC website or as an organiser of an open event during the coming season. If you’re not a contact for your club, please forward this mail on accordingly.    


Thank you in advance and please let me know if you have any questions.

Newport Velodrome Trip

posted 17 Feb 2018, 09:50 by Mike Smith

Don Tanner still has a few places left for the Velodrome at Newport.  This  is for a two hour track session; starting at 1800 on 18 March. The booking includes coaching so we can make the best use of the time. The event is open to Club members only. The only costs are getting there and hiring a track bike (£10.50).

If you are interested, please email me at donjtanner@gmail.com with your name and whether you need a track bike. It would also be helpful if you could let me know whether you have ridden the track before.

Thanks Don

Looks like it is going to be wet and miserable for this Sunday's reliability ride. I held off making the decision in the hope that the forecast had changed and the rain would have missed us, but this doesn't like it will happen so have taken the decision to RESCHEDULE for next Sunday 28th Jan.
