National Clarion Circuit Race Championships 2015

This year the National Clarion (of which Calder Clarion is a member) is running its road race championships on the closed road circuit at York sport village.

The championship races will be run across all classes of riders, with junior, youth, senior, veteran (over 50) & women only races.

Clarion riders from all over the UK will be competing in these events, which are for Clarion members only, for the title of National Clarion Champion 2015.

For Calder Clarion, having this event on our doorstep is an ideal opportunity to get members competing in a national event at a local venue. As the closest Clarion section, we believe it is important to have a good Calder contingent taking part.

To encourage members to participate the club is willing to pay members entry fees up to a total value of £150 for riders of any class who would like to ride in this event.

The details are listed on the British cycling website here;
To take part you will need a racing license, or British Cycling membership of silver or above. Yyou can purchase a BC day racing license on the day for a one off cost of £5.00, or £10 for non BC members (junior licenses are half price).  Details

Places are available now on a first come first served basis, please confirm your entry with Nick Griffiths, who will keep track of the entries and funds allocated.

Online entry is available on the British Cycling website here;
Members must complete their own entry, & all qualifying members who ride in any class will have their entry fee refunded (up to a value of £15 max) by the club after riding. (Riders who enter but don’t ride will not get their entry refunded). 

There is no pressure or expectation to achieve a high placing, it doesn’t even matter if you don’t finish the race, participation is what we are aiming for.

This is a great opportunity to try racing on a closed circuit in a conveniently close location. As we all pay for membership to the National Clarion organization as part of our annual club fees we should try and support  as many of the Clarion events as we can.
