Race on June 25th will see groups let off at 1 minute intervals. This is as close as we will get to a mass start race. Points on the night will be awarded based on the groups so although riders in the earlier groups may not stay with the scratch group until the finish they could easily get brought up the road far enough to take the points in their own group. This might be a good night to practice your race tactics.
General Info

Groups will be based on TT time from the first TT, if you want to go in a faster group we will try accommodate you!!
Winning a race is automatic promotion. Two top three finishes also leads to promotion as does four top five finishes.
The Groups will be reshuffled after TT 2 in order to stop group 1 getting too big and other groups getting too small.
Groups will hopefully be posted in advance of races so there will be no changes on the line.
The rules of the road apply at all times and anyone found to be breaking them will be disqualified with immediate effect.
Numbers must be worn in all races.
Winners of road races must submit a race report to coveyclubleague@gmail.com before results will be posted.
All correspondence regarding the league can be directed to the above address also.
