Riders compete at their own risk.  These are competitive events ridden at high speed and are not suitable for beginners.  We expect our riders to have some previous experience in the relevant discipline prior to entering – either from other races or through race-specific skills training sessions.  

 

All equipment – including clothing – must be fully compliant and riders are solely responsible for the condition and set-up of their bikes and all associated items.  Use of hire bikes is NOT permitted.

Membership and Licencing

 

Silver or Gold British Cycling Membership is required and riders must have a FULL RACING LICENCE, valid for the current year.  We do not accept Provisional or Day Licences.

Racing licences need to include your signature and emergency contact details on the back. 

Track League Compulsory Requirements

 

For all open and league events, fully completed Indoor Track Accreditation (for Newport, Glasgow, Derby, Manchester or Lee Valley) is required and this should be listed on your racing licence.  Riders competing in national squad or professional trade teams may be accepted by exception.   Previous track racing experience is essential.

Prerequisites for New Members

 

In addition to completing a full, 4-stage Indoor Track Accreditation, anyone intending to ride in the track league for the first time is required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of track race training or SQTs.  Track Accreditation in isolation is NOT sufficient for race preparation.  New riders are welcome to come and spectate if they want to get a clearer idea of what is involved.

Track Bike and Clothing Specifications

 

Full track bike and clothing specifications (including guidelines for use of on-board computers) are available on our USEFUL INFORMATION page.
