Rascals Rabbit Run (Go-Ride Race)

MTB XC , Woking – Saturday, 24 Mar 2018

Event Summary

Event Overview

Rascals Go-Ride races are open to everyone from 6 to 16. This includes all the Woking and Guildford Rascals as well as children from other Go-Ride Clubs.

Rascal Go-Ride Races currently take place at Goldsworth Park Recreation Area, Wishbone Way, Woking. Please be aware this venue is not suitable for bicycles fitted with road tyres.

Registration on Rascals Go-Ride Race day is between 9.00 and 9.20 am. Riders arriving after 9.20am will not be able to race. Entry Fee is £3 for everybody whether a British Cycling member or not. Plus you need to get your parents to complete a consent form (http://bit.ly/2sGigWK)

The format is typically four events:-


Individual Time Trial

Riders do a single timed lap around the perimeter mountain bike track, with the fastest three riders collecting the medals.


Skills Test

Riders negotiated their way around an obstacle course on the challenging terrain of the mountain bike inner track. The fastest and cleanest (penalty per cone hit/obstacle failed) three riders collecting the medals.


Just 4 Fun

Riders are split up and given a flavour of various classic race events: Devil; 4 Cross; Team Sprint.


Handicap Race

Riders are lined up on the start line of the perimeter mountain bike track with their grid position and start delay set from the Individual Time Trial. As they are released the faster riders have to dig deep to close the gap on those ahead. The aim is that all the riders converged on the last lap. First three riders home collect the medals

The 6 to 16 year old novice riders are split into the British Cycling Youth Road and Track Categories which are as follows for this year 2017

• Youth E/U8 – Riders born in 2010 and 2009
• Youth D/U10 - Riders born in 2008 and 2007
• Youth C/U12 - Riders born in 2006 and 2005
• Youth B/U14 - Riders born in 2004 and 2003
• Youth A/U16 - Riders born in 2002 and 2001

If there are less than 5 riders in a group, then the event organiser will appropriately merge groups. At the sole discretion of the event organiser a handicap adjustment may be applied to riders within the merged group with the objective of nominalising the merged group.

Racing is general all completed by 12.00 at which time the presentations and awards are given out.

Please be aware children riding cross bikes may be subject to handicap in the time trial and scratch race to even out the equipment advantage they potentially have.

There will be some waiting around so please can you ensure that your child has suitable clothing and plenty of layers including layers that can be easily take off/put on while waiting or racing. They will also need plenty to drink and snacks.

This is normally a fun session and parents are very welcome to stay and cheer all the children on.

We look forward to seeing you
