PROVE you?re cycling nuts! Win a trophy, says coach John Leitch, who aims to encourage clubs to enter as many riders as possible in this novel competition for under 12s, under 10s and under 8s.
Venue is the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in West London on Saturday, September 29, for the Festival of Racing for youths and women.
?Everybody tells you that you're Cycling Nuts and there's nothing wrong with that,? says John.
?But as Cycling Nuts go, where are you on the nutty ladder? Are you just mildly nuts or do you stand on the highest rung, being graded as completely nuts?
?Well here's a good way to find out because now you and your club can be officially certified as the biggest load of Cycling Nuts out there.
?There's a trophy to be won...and three prizes worth a total of £250....so if you come to race bring someone with you with a camera.?
A points system will decide the result, and the club seeking an advantage must bring every available rider. Twenty starters means the winner gets 20 points, second is worth 19 and so on. There are yellow t-shirts for all starters.
The youth races start at 1pm, the women?s events start at 2pm, six races for non-licenced, 1,2,3 and 4th category riders. Events are a mix of short races ? from 200 metre flying sprints, to road races covering four, six and 10 laps, and for the 1,2,3 cats, one hour plus 5 laps.
Leitch has also hatched a scheme aimed at teaching youngsters race-winning strategy. To find out more, you better just turn up.
