Central CX £££££
Sort of brings it in line. Notts & Derby is £15/£18 and 50 mins for seniors, not sure about vets?Posted 4 years ago
Is it annoying? it is what it is. I know they like online booking to speed up the gridding instead of having to work it out on the day.
I’m a V50 and my last two laps were always the fastest, so I have some reworking to do.
Edit; any vet/vet 50/women can join the seniors, you will be scored as a senior.doboMember
Was thinking of rolling up to a CX race tomorrow and just checked the hillingdon central cx race and entry on the day is £18 for a 40 min vet race, is this a joke? not sure if my licence has ran out so may be another £3 for that, which was planned for but £18 for 40 mins is nuts.
yes yes online entry is £12 but its not always possible to plan ahead.
the 40 mins anoys me more than the money, surley this would just make more people want to join the senior 1hr race but what about the women also having 40 mins racing..Posted 4 years ago
fast vets and women cant be too happy with this surley?STATOMember
In the north east we have 2 leagues. The BC one is £12 plus £3 for day licence plus a single £5 payment to ‘register’ for the season. There is also another league, which runs same courses, often run by same people and is £7 plus £5day licence.
Seems to be the British Cycling ones that are ramping the prices up as they need ‘Commissaries attending’ for some reason. And they have the cheek to claim cross is accessible!Posted 4 years agobenjiSubscriber
The BC subs per senior/veteran rider is £3, some of the extra is the chip timing places are using. Lincolnshire is £10 per race, and Yorkshire is £14.
Don’t mind the 40 minutes, it’s the same time as you get for the national trophy and championships. Lincs races run for an hour as seniors/juniors and veterans are all in the one race, yorkshire is seperate, but they have more attending. If you want to see big numbers the notts and derby league on a saturday is really full.Posted 4 years agodoboMember
no i didnt do this one as the cost put me off, i have no doubt it was a great race and i probably got out longer for 40 mins, hell id even do senior if i wanted at the risk of coming last :0 or put in a pratice lap etc.
it just really put me off at the time
think the bc license is anual and probably ran out, no idea where it is tbh as used it this time last year maybe later..
ill probably do some of the wessex ones if the dates are ok, i rolled up to some last year no problem for a more reasonable extra few quid.Posted 4 years ago
