Kinesis UK London/SE Round 1 – Stanmer Pk Preview

Round one of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League to be held at Stanmer Park, Brighton on 3 September 2017.

The wonderful combination of Brighton Excelsior and VC Jubilee once again kick off the 2017/18 cyclo cross season at Stanmer Park near Brighton. This is a venue that has been tweaked for the better over recent years resulting in a more compact course that includes the infamous cavalry charge up the long straight climb, the resulting descent through the woods and then the grasslands area with its switch backs and finish.

You can expect to see close racing with groups forming in longish lines.

There is entry on the day but it is more expensive and you will not be automatically gridded.

MTB
MTB’s are allowed but not fixed wheel bikes.

Grids
The race start order is based upon a riders position in the tables, but for sporting and safety reasons we may bring people forward. Only pre-entered riders will be gridded subject to the commissaire’s discretion.

If you believe that you should be brought forward then you must talk to the commissaire’s BEFORE they begin gridding.

Pits
We would really appreciate it if all competitors and supporters show greater care to ensure that equipment is placed in a manner that allows free movement through the pit area/s. In addition when holding a bike for a rider please make sure that you do not impede another.

We rely upon you to self-police the pits rather than place the burden on already very busy commissaire’s.

Practice Laps
No rider may undertake a practice lap whilst a race is underway unless they have the permission of the Commissaire’s and that will only be given if the last few riders are close to crossing the finishing line. NEVER overtake a rider who is still racing on a practice lap!
