Afetr a great Time Trial last weekend we are aiming to make our first Road Race a similar success, however!..we need your help and support.
Firstly, don’t be shy and intimidated by the thought of racing, this weekend’s race has a specific race for the YOGi members within it so you can enter and race alongside people you know, so come along and try your hand – you could be the first ever winner of the YOGi members race title and trophy holder!
For those who are still too shy, or racing yourself just doesn’t appeal, then please give something back and support the club by posting your name below as a helper and give a hand with the marshalling…it’s also good fun and you can watch and support at the same time. Alternatively please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is now a prize cash fund of £300 for this event so if you fancy your chances get your entry in this week. The event has also been chosen as the final Junior series race of the season so lots of support for the youngsters who race at the same time as the Women in the morning will be welcome.
This event is well worth watching/supporting so please come along to help or support those YOGi’s racing.
The YOGI Autumn Brentor Road Races are now on the BC Calendar and entries are starting to come in. Races are open to women (E/1/2/3/4), juniors, 3rd and 4th Cat male riders.
We also plan to hold, as part of each race, a YOGi Championships. This is open to all riders who have a current race licence with YOGi as their first team and any YOGi member who would like to take part on a day licence. To encourage as many members to take part, the club will give you a free day licence (this normally costs £10 and will be issued on the day of the race to novice racers only). The cost to race is £16 and you will automatically become a 4th Cat racer. Trophies and a goodie-bag and/or prize money will be awarded to the first female, first junior, first 3rd Cat male, first 4th Cat male (*see notes below).
If you would like further details on the races please e-mail email@example.com or have a chat when you see me.
