In order for next years Youth Series to go ahead the MMBC need your help!
We're looking for a team of volunteers/parents to run the series. If we receive no offers the series will not go ahead and it'll be the young riders that'll miss out!
If you can help then please contact us asap via the 'Contact Us' Section of the website.
Entries will shut for the event on WEDNESDAY 26th JUNE at 23:55. Entries will still be taken on the day for the normal fee. The event will be in Chibbanagh, thanks to Steve Honeybone for this :)
A message from Steve Shimmin
I've just realised that the cost of entering events this month is
considerable due to the Isle of Man Bank Town Centre Series, Bikestyle
Handicap Series, Microgaming Lighthouses Challenge as well as the other
Please feel free to spread the cost over 4 months by doing the following;
1) Enter the Microgaming Lighthouses Challenge now on line www.sasevents.im
this will cost £25
2) Send me your entries for the Bikestyle Series & IOM Bank Town Centre
Series. Divide the cost of these entries by 3 and include three post-dated
cheques for that amount. E.g Bikestyle Series £45, IOM Bank Series £70
total cost £115. £115 divided by 3 is £38.34. Include three cheques each for
£38.34. Date them for dates in July, August and September that suit your
circumstances (pay day etc).
We had to preform an emergancy security update which was essential which caused some down time tonight.
My apologies on this and I hope it didn't cause to much inconvenience.
Dear All, it would appear an opportune moment to remind all riders of the rules regarding overtaking in time trials, these regulations state that: -
“Competitors must ride entirely alone and unassisted and not ride in company or take shelter (commonly known as drafting) from other riders or vehicles. A competitor overtaking another must pass without receiving or giving shelter. The onus of avoiding company riding shall be upon the rider overtaken.
Competitors must ride entirely alone and unassisted and not ride in company or take shelter (commonly known as drafting) from another rider or vehicles.
If you should catch up another rider you should try to pass as quickly as possible and must not in any other circumstances ride close behind so that you take shelter from the wind.
You must set your own pace and not use another rider as a pace maker. The onus on avoiding company riding shall be on the rider overtaken.
Nor is it in order to ride alongside and even to ride a few metres behind for any appreciable distance. In the spirit of the sport, caught riders should not disturb the performance of the rider catching them by re-passing and/or riding closely behind them, except when they can sustain that move. This is generally considered to mean that the caught rider should allow a reasonable gap to develop of some 30 to 50 yards/metres.”
