COVID Specific rules & requirements for the 2021 Season

Things will be a bit different because of Covid. 

We ask that people park at the campus and cycle to the start line in time for their allocated start time. 

  1. Only the 5 mile TT on 6/5 has a remote start so allow for an approximately 10 mile warm up for that one, via the junction 5 motorway turn off,  and if you have an extra jacket please leave it just beyond the finish line where you can collect it afterwards
  2. We will not be issuing numbers so please call your number to the time keeper as you pass the finish line. 
  3. Please head home after the finish and results will be put on the website afterwards. 
  4. Unfortunately we are unable to gather around the start and finish area. 
  5. You will need to register via Spond, which will close on Wednesday evening. 
  6. A start sheet will be sent out in advance with your start time on it.
  7. If you are number 1 your start time will be 19:01
  8. Number 2 will be 19:02 etc etc
  9. There will be no pusher so everyone will start with a foot on the ground.

  6. To gain points in an event both rider and bike must cross the finish line unaided.
  7. For 2021 we ARE NOT operating the requirement to volunteer to unlock your maximum points
  8. Due to the temporary Covid restrictions non members are unable to ride in a guest capacity
  9. E-bikes that are UK road legal are allowed. They must be declared to the starter prior to the event. Although the rider will be given a position on an event no points will be awarded to the overall league standings. Also any course record broken will not be recorded as the fastest time for the course.
  10. Tandems are allowed but although the tandem / riders will be given a position on an event no points will be awarded to the overall league standings. Also any course record broken will not be recorded as the fastest time for the course.
  11. Our events are held on public roads which are often narrow and in some cases have limited visibility. It is therefore important that all competitors are aware of other road users at all times both in the start and finish areas. All competitors must therefore leave the road clear for through traffic at all times and where possible congregate off the road.
  12. All riders must have a red light fitted to the rear of their bike, working at the start of the time trial.


Grand Prix Scoring:

  1. The fastest cyclist of any event will be awarded 100 points.
  2. The second place will be awarded 99 points, 3rd will receive 98 points and so on until all competitors, on that particular day have received points.
  3. If more than 100 riders participate then scores of 1 will be awarded to the lowest scoring riders.
  4. The number of events we run may change as the season progresses. So please watch this page and the club social media for updates.
  5. A riders points will be calculated on your best performance from the total number of events (N) minus 2. The overall winner will be the club member who has amassed the highest score over the year
  6. No distinction for gender will exist.
  7. In the event of a tie then the rider with the highest number of 1st places will win the tie. If competitors have an equal number of say first placings then the highest number of second placings, third placings etc. will be taken into consideration.

Grand Prix Disciplinary Actions:All disciplinary actions will be dealt with immediately on the night or up to 7 days after the event

  1. eg type of machine being ridden (full fairing recumbent), impeding by traffic, mechanical, harassment by another rider, heavy rain in later part of event, or whatever will be resolved by a Grand Prix committee of 3. Namely the GP organiser or commissaires for the evening event (if different), time keeper (if different to GP organiser) and one other member for the KCC committee selected by GP organiser.
  2. Resolutions may or may not be given on the night.

(Please note that a mechanical failure, change in weather or traffic impediments will not usually qualify for any form of compensation to the individual)

Insurance:

Please be reminded that the club has no responsibility to individual members regarding any form of insurance. It is up to the individual member to organise his/her own comprehensive, public liability and third party insurance. This can be obtained as a British Cycling Gold or Silver member Please note only Gold Membership from British Cycling provides the rider with personal accident insurance, Silver membership provides the rider with third party liability, Bronze membership provides no insurance cover. These rules (especially those affecting a riders safety) may have to be reviewed and amended from time to time. Rule revisions affecting scoring will only take place in the closed season. It is in all our interest that we keep this to a minimum but rules are sometimes a necessary evil to ensure all our safety and above all our enjoyment of the event.

By entering KCC events all club members will agree to and abide by all requirements as laid out on the
RIDER AGREEMENT FORM
