I believe Barney Harle is down for organising this one.

If anyone who hasn't race organised before fancies helping/shadowing Barney to learn the ropes from a Jedi-class organiser then this is a great opportunity (the track layouts don't get much simpler than this)**

if anyone is up for it let me know.



** the only "simpler" layout I can think of would be to line all the HPVs for fixed distance sprints on turbo trainers. Now that would be a bit of a game changer......we'd have to put all the streamliners in the slow race and only those with front-wheel-drive would have a fighting chance of hulking their bike over the finish line  Smile

PROVISIONAL FORMAT - Times to be confirmed.

10.00am - Sign on Opens

11.00am - Sign on closes

11.15 am ish - 1km standing start - a chance to compare your performance to the Olympians

One race either side of lunch ? - 40 minute crit - fast / slow fleets as per usual

After a bit of a rest - Devil!

All races will be points scoring 25% for 1km, 60% for Crit, 15% for Devil.

We will have Harry "sidwell" Potter doing wizardry and witchcraft with magic beams of electricity in the air but we will also be running stop watches / lap counting.  So remember you will need to make friends with somebody in the other half of the slow / fast race to you so that you get somebody to count your laps - no count = no results.

Should be possible: all but the last two get a lap count and DNF, the last two get laps & times - simples! I'm not offering to do it mind.

I think last time we did it we just gave everybody the leaders time but one less lap as they went down the field so that the computer gave them a relevant place. 

No doubt we'll cobble something together on the day.

The 40 mins race will probably need 2 stop watches for the fast boys - last year for timing the hour Slash needed 3 stop watches.
 
Any chance of doing an Hour again?

If we run out of spare stopwatches for slash's laps, I don't mind hosting any extras on mine.
