Yes Guys, I'm the finishing timekeeper. Although meant to be a restricted gear event (don't ask) just turn up at 8am, pay a few quid entry fee and pin your number on. Points go towards the Roadman's League if you ride on an ordinary road bike. Trophy at the end of the season! Very Happy

Clashes with Omega Thruxton Circuit Race on Sunday and after this weekend's outing like Maximus Decimus Meridius "I will have my vengeance"...especially after a solo ride I did last night for an hour averaged faster than Sunday's race (which was only 40 minutes long).

Jerry - I read on the website that there was, just checking, thank you.

Paul - Restricted gear event??? So does that mean we can turn up with any old set of gears on the bike, i guess not? Help, im confused.com Laughing

You can ride anything you like, long as it's road legal. The gear restriction is 74" and you must screw your front and rear mechs down. The CTT gear table is on the CTT website, link on our own website. You can see why I said not to ask!

You dont have to muck your gears up - just ride your bike as it is.

Paul

Do you have to ride restricted gear to gain road-man league points?

Don't think so Kieth. Just on a road bike, so you'll have to leave you Pinarello Espada at home and bring your black beast that you tore up the roads last Sunday with you.

For all you young, fresh faced testers out there the espada was the TT machine that the great Miguel Indurain used to ride.

How are points decided or is this a closely guarded secret so that the awards ceremony is a surprise?

Just wondering how much I need to focus my efforts or whether I can be competitive in road, TT, and in France.

To answer all questions as best I can:

Signing on is in the layby east of Funtington, not at the start line at Churchers Corner;
There is a trophy for the fastest rider using a gear no higher than 74";
This event counts towards the Roadmans League. To qualify you must be on an unmodified road bike i.e. No tri bars;
The Roadmans League lasts all season and all PNE events plus Portsdown Time Trial Series events count. Points are cumulative, the fastest roadman getting 20 points with the second fastest 19 points and so on. I will publish the table regularly after Sunday's event.

10 miles isn't much until you have to ride it flat out without sitting on anyone's wheel. You must overtake riders ahead cleanly without giving or receiving shelter. If you are overtaken you must not raise you pace to match. You are riding against the watch, not the next rider. Simples. Smile

Is the roadman's league just for PNE riders? Who's currently #1 ? Wink Hmmm Thruxton or Funtington this Sunday Question

View user profile

14 Re: Time trial this Sunday? on Thu 15 Mar 2012, 23:52

Yep, I'm trying to make it worth riding a TT even though you might only have a road bike. There will be an award at the end of the year for the most points gained. A slower rider stands a chance of winning if he/she rides all the events. Only 1st Claim (full membership) PNE riders qualify for the Roadmans League. All our courses are 'sporting' i.e. not exactly flat and sometimes a normal road bike can be an advantage! You can borrow superfast TT wheels if you want but clip on tri bars are not allowed, unless you are really going for the normal PNE TT points award which we've awarded for donkey's years.

Sorry you guys have not known much about this - my dear old Mum is the Club TT Sec but she's not a great user of this forum. Regarding Thruxton versus Funtington, supporting PNE races puts the money into PNE coffers; god knows into who's pocket your money goes with other people's events. Question

True, but since my style is not exactly to fly under the radar at the back of the bunch racing should be good publicity. I'll earn my fair share of roadman league points this season don't you worry Wink

You will get Roadmans points regardless of what gear you ride. If you restrict your gears you will qualify for both awards. However you have to be the fastest restricted gear rider to win the Medium Gear 10 trophy. The roadmans league is season-long. If you ride a low pro bike on unrestricted gears on Sunday you will qualify for neither.

Just to add to the confusion there is another season long award mentioned earlier for all PNE TTs regardless of the bike type but I dont compile that list, my Mum does.

Is anyone planning on riding to the start as a warm up? Or are people taking cars? If anyone is riding where are you leaving from and time, leave as a group? Not sure what you do at these TT having never done one before Very Happy
