Time Trials

2020 Time Trial Season

 ALL COMPETITORS MUST HAVE A WORKING REAR RED LIGHT  FIXED TO THEIR MACHINE  ( constant or flashing mode).   CTT REG 14(i) 

From April to September the club promotes a series of time trials on Thursday evenings – held under CTT Rules and regulations.  Most events are 10 miles, but the events on the last Thursdays in May, June and July are over a 25 mile distance.  Points are awarded for each event, and a number of prizes are awarded based upon performances over the series. Only SCC members are eligible for the points competition.

The minimum age for competitors is 12 years, but all under 18’s must have Parental Consent. The required form can be downloaded from here, or get a copy at the Club.

Entry fees for each event are £5.00 per rider ( including CTT levy).   To encourage younger riders,  Southport CC U18 riders will pay no fee

The 10 mile events use the  D33/10 course along the A565 between Tarleton and Banks, and the 25 Mile events use the existing D25/5 course Tarleton, Rufford, Mere Brow, Crossens, Mere Brow, Rufford and Tarleton.

The first event is on Thursday 9th April – and will be a ‘Road Bike Challenge’ — No TT specific bikes, aero equipment, pointy helmets, disc wheels or clip on ‘tri bars’ permitted.

The first and last event of the season will see the first rider “OFF” at 6.45.pm. Signing on will start at 6.00.pm

All other events the first rider will be “OFF” at 7.01.pm.

Guidance for Marshals and checkers is here : CTT GN 11 Marshals Checkers

Details of the 10 mile course is here D33-10 notes

The risk assessment for the 25 mile course is here: Risk Assess 25 course

The events are open to all comers – and have proved popular with riders from many other clubs in the region.  The Events are also designated as ‘Try It Out’ events, where unattached riders can enter up to 3 events – after which time they are expected to join a club (preferably Southport CC) to continue riding.

We also have an ‘Open 10 Mile Time Trial’ on Saturday 13th June — Entries are via the CTT online system

Event HQ for all evening events is Mere Brow Village Hall – The Gravel, Mere Brow. There is an excellent large car park, and there are also toilet facilities.  Officials and competitors are also welcome to visit the bar for refreshments afterwards.  Please note – do not park vehicles in the bays adjacent to the Bowling Green – they are to be kept clear for the use of the bowlers.
