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
