Volunteers to assist with pushing off riders, working the lap board, assisting the judges, timing the pursuits etc. greatly appreciated.

Looks like an excellent programme, Ade. Many thanks for organising.

I won't be riding, but I do hope to be there to watch and/or help. However, for domestic reasons, I probably won't be able to confirm until about a week before.

Stu. Think non members can take part but won't get any prize, my brother in law did it a couple of years back. See what Adrian says though. They'd need to be fixed confident though obviously.

Adrian what are your thoughts on the one or two academy riders who are now riding fixed? Bring fixed and road bike? If there's a couple maybe they could do a 2k pursuit? They could probably beat a few grown ups in the sprint too 😂

Hopefully they'll be good numbers there again

Adrian,

Very keen to help out Saturday but I’m with Neil. Don’t give me the stopwatch, not without VAR. :D
might have a go on the track as well if poss and would need to hire a bike but my main reason for attendance would be to help out.

Hi Adrian,

More than willing to lend a hand too.

I'd probably only get myself in trouble if i actually raced, so rather be safe than sorry!

Great fun on Saturday - had a great time and the kids loved racing as well. The results being posted on FB are all over the place though - there must be some mix up with the riders numbers maybe?
