The first round of the 2016 Club League is a 16k individual time trial (ITT), to be held on 21st April.
First rider will start at 7pm sharp – this is important to ensure the safety of all participants, as we need to have everyone back safely because daylight will fade fast.
Sign on will be from approx 6:30pm, €2 fee and the start location is just west of the Milltownpass roundabout on the old Athlone Road out of Kinnegad.
Please ensure you arrive in good time to allow for sign-on, and your warm-up!
Riders will set off at 1 minute intervals on a fast route from Kinnegad to Milltownpass (turn in Milltownpass)
on the old Dublin to Galway Road returning on the same route to finish at Kinnegad.
Start/Finish line is just after the last roundabout leaving Kinnegad for Milltownpass.
Tips for warming up correctly can be found here. Warming up correctly is very important, not only to get the best performance out of yourself, but also to avoid possible injury by trying to ride the race from a ‘fresh’, rested state (see here for some of the science behind it all).
Please note UCI rules governing Time Trials – while Time Trial bikes are allowed, Triathlon Bikes are not legal.
Also be aware the regulations for saddle angles (in a nutshell, the saddle must be level:UCI Article 1.3.014 requires that “the saddle support shall be horizontal”).
Note: Marshaling Rota to be arranged after Race 1
