New for this season

We are introducing a Time Trial League for Hartlepool CC members only. This will be incorporated within the Ferryhill Wheelers’ 10 mile events on the T105 course at Sedgefield, which will be held every Thursday at 7 p.m. from 11th May until 24th August inclusive. So, there are 16 events in total. Entry fee is £3, payable on the night, no need to pre-enter. We will run both ‘scratch’ and ‘VTTA plus’ leagues as follows:

• For each event the first Hartlepool CC rider will receive 10 points, 2nd will get 8, 3rd will get 6, down to 1 point for 8th.
• Each rider’s best 8 results, in terms of points scored, will be totalled and a league table produced.
• The winners will be the riders with the highest points total from their best 8 events at the end of the season.
The Ferryhill Wheelers’ Thursday night 10 is an ideal way for newcomers to get involved in time-trialling.

We plan to organise a pay-on-the-night time trial around the Croft Racing Circuit during the summer. This will be in collaboration with Cycling Time Trials. 

More details to follow when we have them.

We hope to be represented at a number of sportives during the course of the year. To date we have entrants for:
• York-Leeds-York on March 18th.
