ARE YOU READY FOR SOME RACING?!
We've got the go ahead from our friends at the FE to run our race events on the following Saturdays - May 13th, Jun 10th, Jul 15th and Aug 12th! Stick the dates in the diary now!
Usual cats of U8s, U10s, U12s, Youth, Junior, Seniors and Vets.
To help our younger riders get into or back into racing the BFCC are going to hold a race training session on Saturday 6th May. Our coaches have kindly extended an open invite to riders from other BC clubs in the region.
To anybody who's ridden or raced at Bedgebury before, you'll know how special this is. Let your friends know, and please support the races. They're the perfect way for new or nervous riders to dip there toes in the water, and there's plenty of competition for the faster racers too.
We'll post events up shortly so keep your eyes peeled for more info... #boarsonbikes #bedgeburyboars #BFCC
We need your help with marshalling, I have tried to answer whats you can expect to do and what we can offer in return.
What is a Marshal?
You will be given a position on the course marked on a map to stand and to support, guide and shout the odd piece of banter at the riders. You will be given either a radio or phone number to contact control if an incident does occur (this is vary rare). If you either not mobile or dont want to walk around the woods, you can help with the time keeping (this postion is a secondary check to our chip system and just involves writing the riders numbers down or shouting them out as they pass)
How long do I need to Marshal?
Ideally if you could help either with the morning session or afternoon or even all day that would be great but if its just for one race thats great.
What happens in a medical emergency?
This is very rare but if something does happen you should make sure you are safe and only then call it in to control, we will have a full equiped medical team on hand to respond and deal with the situation.
Whats are the dates and times of the sessions?
Morning Session: 08:30 - 11:30
