Fancy Dress/Skinsuits encouraged. As is heckling and music from spectators!
NB. There is a start advantage for skinsuits and fancy dress wearers. Also, this year there a "series points" advantage, one extra point for skinsuits and two extra points for PROPER fancy dress (no just chucking a hat on!) This is COMPLETELY judged by the organisers, don't be a dick about it ;-)
For those who haven't done one of our races before below is an explanation of how the "bell lap" works.
The races are 30/40/50 mins plus one lap. This means that as the leader crosses the finish line at about 30/40/50 minutes the bell will be rung, it will be rung for every other competitor after that until the winner crosses the finish line.
There is the possibility that a slower rider can cross the finish line before the leader crosses the line at the 30/40/50 minute time and the leader may then go on to pass the slower rider on the leaders last lap. When the leader crosses the finish line they are the winner and anyone crossing the finish line after then has completed the race, even if they did not hear the bell for their last lap.
Any lap begun after the winner has crossed the finish line will not be credited. We have total time elapsed as well as individual lap times so we can see if a lap was begun after the winner completed the race.
That is enough reading for one post. Let me know if you have any questions.
