Race Field Selection – For all road and closed circuit races, organisers will consider entries from 6 weeks before the date of the event (or first event in a Series).
If the event is oversubscribed, entries will close no earlier than 3 weeks before the date of the first race for the selection to take place. In this case the organiser should:
Firstly, give preference to members from clubs, sponsored teams or to groups of individuals, which are promoting TLI Cycling events in the current year.
Secondly, give preference to clubs which are promoting events for the LVRC in the current year.
Maximum Number of Entrants permitted on public roads at any one time is 80 (1960 Racing on the Highway Regs), unless the organiser has requested, and the Police have granted, “Special Permission” under the “1960 Regs and Subsequent Amendments”. Please note: Wales and Scotland operate under different Regs to England.
For a “closed circuit race”, not on public roads, the maximum number of competitors will be determined by the organiser’s Risk Assessment for the course.
Allocate the entrants to 2, preferably 3, Age-Related Races.
Maximum of 40 competitors in any one race on public roads, unless a handicap format is used. (TLI Cycling good practice to minimise accidents or inconvenience).
Check that the correct Age-Related TLI Cycling Categories have been allocated.
Check that Female Entrants are in their correct category, as shown on their licence.
Therefore, the number of entries to return is xx
