The discussion on FB is about 1 or 2 races. Not very many signed on, so one long race should be OK, but there is a new junior rider. Solo rides take a while and people won't want to stay late.

Sign-on for Shrewsbury and Stourport will be extended in the shop until 10:00pm on Thursday (July 28th) instead of the usual 12:00 noon cutoff because of the various uncertainties.

Have spoken to Shrewsbury Sports Village today. The finishing touches to the cycle track are now complete and are awaiting awaiting a final safety inspection tomorrow to get it officially signed off as good for use.

They will contact me tommorrow to confirm when this has been done.

As soon as I hear, I will post on Facebook 'n' Forum to let everybody know for definite whether Sunday 1st Aug will be at Shrewsbury.

Meanwhile, it seems likely that the race timing system isn't going to be available, so I suggest anyone that can brings a notebook and pen to count laps with, and stopwatches if you've got them.

If someone (or multiple someones) can bring about 50m of mains extension lead(s), we can at least use the LED race clock (which I currently have) as a simple time display.  I've got a 25m reel, but we need about 75m to reach the finish line at Stourport.

Also, something we can use for flags and bells.  I believe red petticoats are traditional :)

If any videographers feel like paying extra attention to covering the race finishes in their entirety, that would be helpful for resolving quibbles.  Racers, keep your GPS recordings!

Don't forget (for anyone who has been holding off booking, race registration for Shrewsbury (sun) as well as Stourport (on sat) is open until 10pm this eve.

And I've uploaded the times to the usual place:


I've manually entered the flying lap times into CrossMgr as if it were a time trial, as that gives the most sensible output.  (Pay no attention to the way it thinks everyone started simultaneously at 20:57 this evening.)

Pretty solid results from the timing system for the 90 minute race.  I merely had to set a couple of DNFs and remove some phantom laps recorded during a comfort break.

So I'm not expecting much in the way of quibbles.  Anyone got any class changes or anything?

Many thanks Kim!
My Strava seems to agree exactly with the manual timing of the flying lap... :)

I was hoping to be car-free today but not so. Only one in the car-free category today.

The surface does not appear to have suffered too much. I have just checked my Strava entry from July 2017. My average speed from the hour race was 25.4 mph; very close to the 90 minute speed this weekend.
Bream no longer. I'll ride anything, slowly
