This is the place for discussion about racing at 

Shrewsbury Sports Village
SY1 4RQ  

Sun 1st Aug

10:00 - 15:00



sorry for the delays getting this one sorted
The track is being resurfaced and couldn't confirm until they knew for definite that it would be completed on time.

On the plus side, the circuit should be really really smoooooth!!

A follow-up announcement will be posted here once race entries are set up to book via the BHPC web shop.

Important Notice

I've just heard from Shrewsbury that their newly resurfaced track may not now be ready for the weekend. Apparently needs some additional minor work done to meet safety inspection requirements before they can open it for use. Will hopefully know by mid-week.

Stourport is available on Sunday 1st Aug.
Would obviously prefer a shrewsbury sunday as I'm conscious people will have already made plans and/or booked camping/accommodation  

So, I'll contact Shrewsbury on Wed.
If they cant give a definite yes to the track being ready on time, I'll book stouport for the Sunday, so we'll have 2 days at the same venue.

Will Post a definite answer here on Wed

Wherever the race on Sunday, there is a discussion on race format on FB. I hope we won't just do 2 races the same. A longer race (just one way) has been suggested. I thought we could add single lappers to that, preferably flying lap, with a warm up for those that want.

Sounds sensible to me...

I think Fards is organizating, so up to him.

It would however help if the person running the timing system knew what to set the software up for...

Fards is offering to ride to Shrewsbury to organise - I don't know if he'll be able to come if it's switched to Stourport as they are 40 miles apart. 
I think we're probably safe saying it will be a 90 minute race and a flying lap regardless of the venue...

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!

GOOD NEWS !!

We'll definitely be racing at shrewsbury on Sun 1st Aug, (as originally advertised). The track has just this afternoon been signed off and approved for use.

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:

http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Data/Sites/1/media/events/events21/07shrewsbury/index.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Data/Sites/1/media/events/events21/07shrewsbury/index.html

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

Hi, Kim! Looking at the results for flying lap, I do not remember seeing Dave Overton as being anywhere near the leaders! Is there a mistake there?

The piece of paper has "30 (2:07) [scribbled out digit] 1:27.39" written on it, in reasonably unambiguous handwriting.  1:27 is what's shown in the results, so it's not my transcription error.  2:07 would put him below our newest junior rider, which seems unlikely (presumably a warm-up lap?).

Perhaps Steve can elaborate, he was writing things down...

For further confusion, the RFID system recorded the following times for him: {14:11.39, 2:36.83,2:02.85,1:46.37} none of which seem to correlate with the above.  The 1:46.37 sounds plausible, though.  Maybe the 2:02 if he was having a bad day?

(By way of comparison, both Jochen and I have stopwatch times of 1:34.  RFID recorded 1:33.26 for me and 1:34.32 for Jochen - I checked this earlier, because I found it surprising.  Previous experience of tandem riders with tags on both helmets suggests that you can't read much sub-second precision into the RFID times.)

My time is correct, was not my fastest TT 😁

Maybe you should make a photo of the hand writing paper and asks Steve to confirm what he thinks. Definitely the RFiD system time of 1.46.37 seems plausible!
