Many of you will have heard about this event. In the past the BMCC have run this 9-up at the Weston on the Green airfield course at the end of July, but this year they are running it on Silverstone. On the Grand Prix circuit. It should be awesome.
However there are other changes:
It costs £150
per team (£16.67each). Seems hefty, but does ensure only serious teams or clubs enter and I think the bulk of it goes to charity.
We can name up to 3 reserves
Road bikes only (no TT bikes/bars, etc.) Am checking if we can use TT wheels, but their rules state they must be UCI complient... Not sure anyone will actually check that though.
Proper helmets as it's under BC regs, not CTT (not that this is an issue for most)
It's on a FRIDAY! I think it's evening... but will confirm
There are a number of confirmed teams from F1 GP teams riding... that should be interesting! I wonder how many 'ringers' they can bring in!
I need to be able to confirm our participation by no later than the end of next week - and pay the entry fee (non refundable!).
So if you are interested then let me know asap.
I think we can get a half decent team together but we need a team that can work together - someone too strong will be disruptive if they don't handle it well!
Oh yes - the BMCC 4-up is the following week (Tuesday 14 August) but back to normal I think - CTT and on the normal course. We need to start to look at this soon too!
