Salt Ayre Cog Set 2018 Youth Race Series - Event 12

Closed Circuit , Lancaster – Wednesday, 11 Jul 2018

Event Summary

Event Overview

Cog Set is looking forward to hosting another friendly yet exciting race series - welcoming back regular competitors and hopefully welcoming some new faces too. 

THANK YOU to our sponsors: The Edge Cycleworks www.theedgecycleworks.com whose friendly and skilled staff can meet your bike purchasing and fixing needs from their Lancaster and Chester shops; and Ask Peter, Lancaster based cycling fan and businessman offering a wide range of property maintenance services (askpeter@hotmail.co.uk or 01524 32447/07884 261950).

Entry is £4 on the day only For Youth A, B & C, £3 for Youth D & E..  Half of this goes to British Cycling, the rest is used for track maintenance, primes and other prizes not funded by our sponsors, and race expenses.  

Riders who do not hold a BC licence need to pay an additional £1.50 levy to BC.  

Optional pre-registration: To reduce queues at the first event you can email your details to holdensue@gmail.com and I will enter them on the registration form (then all you have to do is pay and sign).  Just let me know the following information:

  • Name
  • Club or team (if you have one)
  • Category (ie A, B, C, D or E)
  • Date of birth 
  • BC licence number (if you have a licence)
  • Email to use for communications re the series
  • Phone number to use in case of injury at the race

 Race lengths and approximate timings are as follows:

6:10pm

Signing-on opens...

 ... and gear checking

6:30   

Ds & Es (U10s & U8s)

4 laps (3.2 miles/5.1 kms) – no primes

6:45

Cs (U12s)

9 laps, with primes points at end of lap 5 (7.2 miles/11.6 kms)

7:15

As & Bs (U16s & U14s)

18 laps, with primes points at end of laps 6 and 12 (14.4 miles/23.2kms)

Please turn up in time to sign on and have your gears checked!  Riders must have the correct gear restrictions for their age category -see https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/zuvvi/media/bc_files/volunteer/Youth_Gear_Restrictions_for_Riders.Parents.pdf for more information.

Age categories:

British cycling's age categories span two calendar years.  For 2016 they are as follows:

Rider born in

Category

2008 or later

Youth E (under 8s)

2006 or 2007

Youth D (under 10s)

2004 or 2005

Youth C (under 12s)

2002 or 2003

Youth B (under 14s)

2000 or 2001

Youth A (under 16s)


Scoring: 

British cycling ranking points for As and Bs (riders need a BC licence to gain these points):

If there are 10 or more riders in the category:

1st place gets 10 points

2nd place gets 9 points

all the way down to 10th place with 1 point

If there are fewer than 10 riders in the category:

1st place gets 3 points

2nd place gets 2 points

3rd place gets 1 point

Note, for 2016, there are no BC points awarded in the C, D and E categories.

Cogset league scoring:

* this will be cumulative, the total of each rider's best 9 scores out of 13 events

* scoring is by age and gender category (ie first under 8 girl gets 10 points and first under 8 boy gets 10 points) regardless of the number of riders in each category:

1st place gets 10 points

2nd place gets 9 points

all the way down to 9th place, which gets 2 points

and all other finishers get 1 point

* participants must have ridden at least 7 events to be eligible for a prize at the end of the series.

Prime competition scoring:

Primes are races within a race: there will be one in the in the C race (end of lap 5) and two in the AB race (end of laps 6 and 12).  Scoring is:

* also cumulative, the total of each rider's best 9 scores out of 13 events

* by age category - not age and gender.  

1st rider over the line at each prime gets 3 points

2nd rider over the line at each prime gets 2 points

3rd rider over the line at each prime gets 1 point

We may also have some spot primes for the DE race to liven things up a little for the younger riders. 

Volunteer league:

It takes a lot of volunteers to run each event!  We have a core team to cover the key tasks, but also need help every week from the adults who accompany riders.  

Some parents have suggested we introduce a conditional system - ie your child can only ride if you volunteer - but we are hoping instead to rely on your good will.  We will be keeping track of who has helped, so that we can thank them formally at the end of the series, and give small prizes to the top scorers!
