Sunday 30 June - British School Cycling Association - National Circuit Champs

The British Schools Cycling Association National Circuit Race Championships will be held on the 30th June at Salt Ayre. In this competition you race in the name of your school. The age categories are done on the basis of school years and the gear restrictions are slightly different but otherwise it is just the same as any other sort of racing that you might do at Salt Ayre on a Wednesday night or CDNW.

The closing date for entries is Sunday 16th.

To enter visit : http://www.bsca.org.uk/wordpress/events/36/bsca-national-circuit-championship/
Download the entry form, print off and send with a cheque (or bring on to Cog Set on a Saturday morning). We think this is a great way to get schools interested in your sport and even if you don't think you could be the National Schools Champion - think how good that sounds! - there is a team prize for each age category so if you and a couple of school friends enter you could win the prize for best team (3 riders).
Don't delay - enter today!
Because Cog Set is affiliated to British Schools Cycling Association it is NOT necessary to pay the £2 surcharge.

New To Racing?

If you are New to Racing download an_introduction_to_racing_by_matt_winston.pdf
It is a little out of date - but still has some very useful information

If you would like to enter CDNW Series of Races , you need to do the following:

1) Become a member of British Cycling.
Visit https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/web/site/BC/bcf/bcApplicationFormTmp.asp?promo=none and claim your free ‘bronze membership’ (please make sure you enter club details as ‘Salt Ayre Cog Set – not Salt Ayre Cycling Association).

2) CDNW (Cycling Development North West)
Visit www.cdnw.org - ‘CDNW youth league’ download and complete British Cycling Entry Form and forward with your payment. (It costs less if you register for CDNW races in advance)

3) Correct Gear Restrictions
If you are new to racing, you need to check your gearing is set correctly for the race you are entering - see gear restrictions or speak to one of the coaches for guidance

In case some of you are confused here is a quick guide to the gear restrictions for youth racing. If you want to compete in circuit races you will need the following Gear Restrictions.

These restrictions should apply to all mass start races you take part in (I.E. not time trials). At most races you will be asked to have your gears checked before you sign on If you are found to be over geared you will have to rectify the problem before you are allowed to race. When going for gear checks the person checking the gears will probably appreciate it if you have your bike set in the highest gear you can (this helps make the check quicker).

N.B for the Tuesday night racing at salt ayre the rules on gear checks are relaxed slightly so if you have not yet got your gears restricted don't be put off however it is best to get on the correct gear so you are used to it for the next level of racing
