From Daniel o’Donoghue of Roues Chaudes, if you are thinking of trying the Tech Park Crits in Bentley:
Our main focus here in terms of numbers is driving junior and women’s participation:
- E grade is specifically for juniors up to U13 and new U15. We have room to split the field into two groups if we have enough starters and a wide range of abilities
- D Grade is for better u15’s and beginner U17’s. We will also have a separate group of beginner seniors on the course at the same time.
The key here is we are flexible on who races where so we can match abilities rather than age groups. We have three stand alone women’s grade with C through A in two races.
We would really appreciate the support of clubs with juniors to justify continuing to put these on.
