Reserve List

No Rider on Reserve List

Start list grading – When you go to book a slot always try first and foremost to book within one of the three grades that apply to you, we understand this will not be perfect and there will be lots of exceptions (work, appointments etc etc) when this rule of thumb cannot be followed. For this event the permitted field is limited to 60 Riders.

  • Slots 1-20 Juniors, novices and improving riders who would record times in the bottom third of our scratch times list.
  • Slots 21-40 All riders who normally record times in the mid-range of our scratch times list.
  • Slots 41-60 All riders who normally record times in the top third of our scratch list.

Clearly this grading by nature will be imperfect however after hours of discussion and an extended trial the RRCC Committee have now adopted the policy. The overriding factors that we considered were:

Safety – Starting riders in a graded format will result in racing completed well before we lose crucial light and visibility, and potentially limit the need of overtaking another rider.
Volunteers – Starting in this format means all of the volunteers and Marshals can get home before dark.
Racing – We are a racing club, so grading improves competition with riders of similar abilities competing and improving their times!

Reserve booking list – We have had a few weeks now where we have exceeded our permitted slots (what a great position to be in!) to manage this fairly we propose opening the booking system to beyond the permitted slots as a reserve list, how this will work is simple: if you attempt to book on and permitted slots are already booked, put your name on the reserve list. If for any reason a rider drops out and deletes a booking slot the next rider on the reserve list will be expected to access the system and book the now available slot. A curtesy WhatsApp message from the member withdrawing to next reserve would be a nice touch:
