Club Championship 2019

Postby racing795 » Fri Dec 28, 2018 12:05 pm

Hi all
Following on from suggestions at the agm changes have been made to the champs.
The aim remains the same with inclusion/participation of all members the goal. Every member at the start of 2019 will have a chance of winning the much coveted Martin Mimnagh cup. If you’re somebody who doesn’t swim or maybe you don’t run no problem there are 14 events in total with something for everyone.Fitness levels are irrelevant.
Hopefully these improvements will see the cup within reach of a lot more members and therefore create some excitement during the year.

The events will run from January to October,with a break during the summer to allow for holidays.
Below is the full list so you can plan your racing year!

Good luck

Date for Club Champs MTB and CX races as follows:

MTB Race #1 - Tuesday 2nd April @ 7.15pm
MTB Race #2 - Tuesday 16th April @ 7.15pm

CX Race #1 - Tuesday 17th Setember @ 7.15pm
CX Race #2 - Sunday 29th September @ 11.00am

The course for this years mtb races is quite a bit easier than last year's so suitable for all - novices, sometime mtbers and even the older kids (u14 up)
It is based around John's Hill which most of you are probably familiar with.
The start/finish is about a 15min spin up from the LCP
Course then is:
Fireroad start over to Johns Hill
Turn left at Johns Hill and follow the trail around the hill clockwise
Back the fireroad and left at the wall
Down the double track and into a new (flat) section of singletrack called Colon (ask Tully :) )
End of lap
Here's the segment so you can familiarise yourselves ahead of time -
It will be a 2 lap race, fast lads will take about 17mins per lap

Details about the CX races later in the year, but hopefully we will have a (beginner friendly) course at our training ground behind the FCJ in Bunclody
