CA - Time Trial Road Events

Written by Isle of Man Cycling Association
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.”

Marshals required for youth tour
Published on Friday, 19 April 2013 22:00
The organisers of the Youth Tour recently appealed to cycling clubs affiliated to the IOM Cycling Association to help out in running the event. The event is ran as a stage race (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday) over the May Day Bank Holiday every year for Juniors and all other Youth Categories. The event is a fantastic success which allows our IOM Juniors and Youths to compete locally in a International Standard event against some of the best cycling talent from across Europe.
We have agreed as a club to help the organisers of the Youth Tour by Marshalling the Friday night stage on Douglas Prom from 5pm till 9pm ish. This helps in allowing them to get on and make the necessary arrangements in organising such an event over 3 days. All other cycling clubs affiliated to the CA are taking responsibility for a stage.
I am appealing to you if you can spare the Friday evening 3rd May 5pm to 9pm ish please let me know. Please if possible help the club and IOM cycling in staging this great event.
If you can volunteer please send me an email we need 12 marshals.
Thanks in advance for your assistance. Scott Morgan
