Saturday Feb 21st
Trial TT for men and women. The first 6 in the each category will be selected for the team. There will only be one trial, so mishaps illness etc. cannot be remedied. This is the same system that the USA track and field team use for championship selection, and I believe it to be the most equitable.
For the men’s race, A3/2/1 riders will be eligible for selection. The fastest 6 riders in the time trial will be selected for the TTT, and then they will ride the pertinent race on Sunday, depending on their category.
The female team will be the same for the road race and time trial, with again the first 6 riders in the Time Trial qualifying for the team.
Riders must be available for selection and willing to compete in both events.
The trial will take place on a 30km course.
Sign on will be in Swinford Amenity Centre from 9.15-9.50am
First rider off will be at 10.30am
There is a 5km cycle from sign on to the start / finish area of the course
The cost of funding the team will be divided between the riders. their club and Connacht equally, ie 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 respectively.
