2017 Evening 10's Series, Wednesdays 5th April to August 23rd.
We're off! This year's series got under way on Wednesday 5th April with 18 Club riders and 5 PTT's for the first event which started at 6.45 pm (they get later as the season progresses) on the
From then until August 24th competition will be intense for the six
Trophies involved - Senior Men, Juniors and Senior Ladies on Handicap Times plus Mens and Ladies on Fastest Times and Veterans on Standard. Keep in touch with each week's result via the website; full results will be given throughout the season, along with the Handicap Times and Fastest Times tables. Click on Time Trials on the Main Menu and then Evening 10's on the Time Trial menu or
to go straight to the results.
Although we are keeping to the 20 events for the series there are a few changes for 2017.
(1) - All 20 events will be on the E.81a course.
(2) - Also, note that there will be no Evening 10 on the 14th June, on that day we will be running a 25 miles time trial on the Vipers circuit.
(3) - Lastly, remember that payment for the race will have to be made on the day. Please have the correct cash with you. Cost for Seniors is £3 and there is no charge for under 19's. For PTT's the cost is £4.
You can enter on the night or reserve your place in advance, but only 3 weeks in advance, by entering online or at the Clubroom. Privates are welcome if there is space available, cost is just £4.00 but for that you will be able to take part in an event which is run like an open - marshals all round the course, lots of riders and a full published result sheet. Why not enter on-line? - note that on-line or email entry is not available on the day, for that you must turn up at the Clubroom.
for full details of times and courses and the entry form.
Normally you can enter in advance but for the first 3 events, which have limited fields, this is unlikely as places are going fast and preference obviously goes to Club riders. If you haven't already entered then give the on-the-day organiser a ring otherwise all you can do is turn up on the night and see if there are any non-shows. Disappointing for some but it is something which such a large Club as ours will experience from time to time. (If the weather is bad then the likelihood of non-shows is higher.)
It is very important that all members who have booked a number let the on-the-day organiser know in advance (at the Clubroom or by text) if they are unable to ride on any particular evening. This will ensure that other members can get a ride. Also, if you fail to inform of your non-riding on two (2) occasions you may forfeit your number.
Club members are reminded that they are obliged to marshal a number of the Evening 10's throughout the season (exact number is in proportion to number of events ridden last year) or find a replacement if they are unable to be there - and to let the on-the-day organiser know the name of the replacement.
