NATIONAL TROPHY PRACTICE
Some of our Youth riders who are racing on Sunday are meeting up at 11.30 ish on Saturday to ride the course at peel park, so if you are racing you are welcome to join them.
Bike Club including Road training will be on as usual - the Under 12 course will not be set up for Saturday just the Youth and adult one.
HELP WANTED FOR RACE SUPPORT
Our Youth riders who are racing at 13.30 on Sunday need a couple of willing volunteers to help out during their race. The races have pits where each rider should have someone (usually a parent) to give out spare wheels etc during the race, however if they have a mechanical or bikes need mud clearing off them during the race (CX bikes get very muddy and riders often change bikes on a regular basis during the event), we could do with willing volunteers to clean up the bikes during the race or sort out any mechanical problem. If anyone wants to offer help between 1.15 and 2.15 on the day, please get in touch with Mandy. If would be great if we could provide club support in this way.
