All is set for an exciting weekend of racing .
The 2 Day Race Event Manual is here 2015 Ilkley CC – 2 Day – Race Manual – Rev B
We have a full field of 26 three man teams with many teams travelling to come and experience the roads of Yorkshire. The furthest South is from Sussex and the furthest North from Glasgow, we also have a Yorkshire Junior Team along our own strong Ilkley CC team defending the winning team prize from last year.
This year we have made a few changes; the race HQ for both days will be at Darley Village Hall and we are introducing a short prologue to make the race four stages long. Basically we will start with a 1.5 mile individual time trial on Saturday morning followed by a 55mile road race on Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning will see the riders facing the 5.5 mile team time trial and then on Sunday afternoon we will round the racing off with 45 tough miles around the Darley circuit.
Several of you have already offered help which is great and appreciated. Over this next week I would like to get the various roles covered so please let me know if / when you are free to help and which of the following you are happy to help with.
o This will be under the guidance of the Traffic Management company we are using…all ex-police officers and top guys)
o The key stages for this are the two road stages, ie Saturday and Sunday afternoons (12:30 -> 17:00)
o We will need a small number of marshals for both the prologue and team time trial, ie Saturday and Sunday mornings (9:00 -> 12:30)
· Driving in the Convoy
o Only required for the two road stages, ie Saturday and Sunday afternoons (12:30 -> 17:00)
