Summer Time Trials – They’re Back!

Following the recent Government announcement and subsequent statement from Cycling Time Trials (CTT), it is anticipated that both Type A (Open) and Type B (Club) events can recommence as of Monday 29th March onwards.

All being well, this will see the first VC Venta time trial of the season being our first ever open event on Sunday 18th April on the HCC283 Candover course and this will be open to all clubs, with sign up via CTT at the link below.

Club 10 events will commence shortly after, with the VC Venta Summer TT Series kicking off on Tuesday 4th May, on the P140 Kings Somborne course.

The season will then be finished in style with the second open event of the season being a hill climb on Sunday 26th September on the P821 HC up Old Winchester Hill and this will be open to all clubs with sign up via CTT at the link below.

Due to the very nature of time trialling being a socially distanced cycling discipline it is expected that by following the CTT COVID-19 Risk Assessment the club will be able to run the full series of planned events in a safe and challenging environment on a selection of varied and challenging courses.

As always, without the willing volunteers of Club members, these events simply cannot happen. The Club needs event owners for the 6 Club events at the dates listed below. As an event owner you will be responsible of recruiting your willing team of volunteers and organising the event on the day. All of the support and guidance needed will be available, so please do come forward if you can help by emailing racing@vcventa.co.uk to express your interest.
