Time Trial League Rules

Entry is £5 for adults and £2 for under 18s.

All entrants must be a member of an affiliated CTT club – see http://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/Clubs. Day membership of Cheltenham and County is available for £1 if you are not in an affiliated club.

We strongly recommend all rider fix a flashing red rear light to their bikes and hard shell helment which conforms to a recognised safety standard. Under 18 riders must wear a helmet.

League Rules

 

  1. There will be 5 points based leagues, named A, B, C, D and E.
  2. Riders placed in a league based on their 10 mile personal best from last season on the CCCC club course (UC706).
    • League A is for riders faster than 23 minutes 30 seconds
    • League B is for riders faster than 24 minutes 30 seconds
    • League C is for riders faster than 25 minutes 30 seconds
    • League D is for riders faster than 27 minutes 30 seconds
  3. League E is for all other riders
  4. Riders will stay in the same league for the duration of the season, even if they record a time faster than the league qualifying time.
  5. Any riders without a PB from the last season will be given an assumed PB based on the judgment of the timekeepers.
  6. The timekeepers reserve the right to move a rider to a different league during the season. For example, switching from a road bike to TT bike will likely cause a step change in times, so the rider may be moved to a different league to reflect this. Riders can also request to change leagues, which will be decided on by the timekeepers.
  7. Points in each event will be scored as 10 for first fastest rider in each league, then 9 for second, 8 for 3rd, 7 for 4th, 6 for 5th, 5 for 6th, 4 for 7th, 3 for 8th, 2 for 9th and 1 for 10th.
  8. Points will be scored in all events except for hill climb events. A separate competition structure will be developed for the hillclimbs.
  9. Each rider’s 10 best performances count towards the league, where ‘best’ means most points scored.
