BCC 2019 Road & TT Championships

I’m very exited to release details of several events that will combine to make up our new championships with  prize giving and glamour at our new formal end of season event. We hope to create a scoring system that does not rely entirely on a fast ride or top placing. Points will be awarded for a variety of classifications, age group placing, route difficulty, participating etc. So bringing home the fastest ride will not guarantee a win in the competition, we encourage all to give it a try if you haven’t already entered a sportive or time trial before.

I suggest reading over all the routes and start planning for the season by entering your chosen events now, don’t forget to use the discounts the organisers have given us to use.

Best of luck and I’ll see you out there,

Gordon
