The East Midlands region is looking for new Cyclo-Cross Commissaires

Course Date – Sunday 7th September

Venue – Newark, Notts

Event growth across the discipline in the region means more officials are required. We want to ensure the region has the infrastructure to support the event calendar to continue to grow and as a Commissaire you can help make that happen. 

If you 

·         have a passion for the sport and a desire to see successful local events take place,
·         want to contribute your skills, experience or time to the development of the sport,
·         wish to be in the company of people with a shared passion for cycling, or
·         like the enjoyment of being involved and getting active

then get involved as a Commissaire.

There are thousands of cycling events every year and they all rely on officials to ensure that they are safe, fair and most importantly fun! 

Whatever your aspirations, be it a Regional, National or even UCI Commissaire it all starts with a FREE training course.

Regional Commissaire training consists of:

·         An hour’s online learning module covering the Commissaire pathway, safeguarding, anti-doping and conflict management.
·         A classroom based 1 day course.
·         Active roles at a number of events providing practical experience of the various aspects of being a Commissaire.
·         Completion of a practical training logbook to monitor your progress towards Regional Commissaire status.

PedalPushers 2014 Race Series - Update

Following the withdrawal by the RAF of all non operational activities on the Barkston Heath airfield the PedalPushers circuit race series has now identified a new circuit at Fulbeck Kart track. This is a 1.2km circuit reasonably well surfaced, cornering skills will be more important than on the old B.Heath circuit but it should promote some good racing. Off circuit facilities are good and from a spectators perspective they will get an excellent view of the racing.

The first event is scheduled for Saturday 31st May promoted by Bourne Wheelers with races for all Youth categories, Ladies, 4th category and 2/3/4 category. Field sizes will be limited to 40 riders for this first event. Entries are now being taken via the BC on-line entry system.

It is envisaged that further events later in the season will follow

Location is at Post Code LN5 OQZ just off the A17 half way between Sleaford and Newark
