Club Time Trials

In view of the ongoing Government advice and guidance and in particular the guidance on social distancing, PCC as part of the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) Association has taken the decision to extend the current suspension of all CTT events, (this includes all Type A and Type B (club TTs) events), up to and including 30 June 2020. 

During the COVID-19 period, instead of the Club TT Ant Birt has suggested we run a ‘fun’ league and publish weekly results based on the popular British Cycling Timetrial series on the Zwift training platform. Just sign up to the events on each Thursday @ 6:30 (details here), put PCC in your User name and Ant will publish the results each week similar to the real thing (so expect some delay:-). Please feel free to do any events but only the 6:30pm results will be published (and don’t be late for the start, Zwift is even tougher than our chairman for late sign on. Please contact Ant Birt for details.

All to be held on a Thursday evening (unless otherwise stated).  10 mile events to use the B10/9 course and 5 mile events to use ‘B5/9’ course (using the start of the B30/9R and then following the B10/9 route, finishing opposite the start).  In the event of road-works in Tunstall village, etc., we have an alternative 7.8 mile loop we can use via Wantisden, Butley, Chillesford.  New for 2020 is the inclusion of our last 4 races within the Ipswich & District Cycle Association (IDCA) series this also means our club members can compete  within this series at other club courses around Ipswich and district.

Rider Numbers should be positioned such that the timekeeper can easily read them, i.e. low down the back (bum height).  It is also worth shouting out your number as you cross the finish line.

* The last 4 events will form part of the Ipswich & District Cycle Association (IDCA) series
