2014 TT Sporting Series
A series for all you roadies to give a hammering to the pointy hat brigade. 5 events on 5 very different courses raced over the whole season.
- Race 1. Four Firs open tt (March 30th 2014 – 8.30am)
- Race 2. Tedburn 15 mile club tt (May 14th 2014 – 7pm)
- Race 3. Budlake 10 mile club tt (June 4th 2014 – 7pm)
- Race 4. Exe Valley 24 mile club tt (July 13th 2014 – 8am)
- Race 5. Pensylvannia Road Hill Climb (Oct 2014 tbc)
Please note that the times are for the first rider off the start, open events require entry via CTT and club events are on the day entry.
This will be a points based event and your help will be required at one of the first 4 races to qualify. 20 points for the 1st place EWCC rider reducing to 1 point for the 20th placed EWCC rider. 10 points for helping at one of the first 4 events and 5 points for helping at any other EWCC race event. We have decided to cap the total points awarded for helping to 25 and you can’t claim helper and race points in the same event.

Introductory Rides go Fortnightly
Due to the huge success and enthusiasm behind these rides - we have stepped up and put them on bi-weekly. The next ride will be on 10th November 9am Odeon. Spread the word it's a great way to get started with group riding and see what the clubs all about.
Sunday Club Ride Changes
We are now operating with a maximum group size of 20 riders due to popularity. If more riders turn out we will split the groups into mixed ability groups a few minutes apart so please listen to your ride leaders before setting off as they may ask you to depart in a particular group.
The club is now offering two sunday rides - while there is demand, we are operating a faster paced ride in addition to the standard Sunday ride. The main differences with this group are:
- This group goes in front of the main club run as a faster paced steady race training ride for experienced riders.
- It has a lower level of rider support.
- It will follow (for at least the first 25miles) the published route. If riders find it unsuitable they can then drop back to the main run.
- An additional mileage may be added on towards the end.
If you need any Club kit, you can call Greg Rorke on 07794106357 and arrange payment/collection from the Bike Shed. Hoodies are also available from web-engineer's offices in the town centre - call 01392 253304 to arrange collection/payment.
Club Subs are due
Please remember to pay your club subs - you cannot race this season if your subs are unpaid - so don't forget - it's only £12 and you can do it online here
