Race Format

The entry fee for each race is £4.00 for youth D&E riders and £6.00 for Youth A, B and C riders. When riders arrive on race evenings they must have their gears checked, sign on, pay their entry fee and collect a race number. There is more information about this in the gearing section of this site.

The races follow the same format at both Bradford, York and Sheffield venues:

Typically the youngest under 10’s would race for around 15 minutes with the oldest under 16’s racing for 40 minutes.

Points are awarded to the riders based on their positions in the sprint and endurance races. Separate leagues are run based on the Bradford, York and Sheffield results. At the end of the series prizes are awarded to the best placed riders in all age categories for all series.

For 2017 these will comprise:

Race 1 Youth D/E (under 10/8) Boys and Girls
Race 2 Youth C (under12) Boys and Girls and Youth A/B (under 16/14) novice girls
Race 3 Youth B (under 14) Boys and Girls
Race 4 Youth A (under 16) Boys and Girls
Youth A/B girls may ride 2 races but may only claim one set of points.

Categories may be combined at the discretion of the Commissaire.
