The Chevin Cycles Evening Road Race Series is back for 2017!
After a year away, our hugely popular evening Road Race Series is set to return the end of April 2017. With five quality handicapped open road races on some of the best courses in North and West Yorkshire, and the Grand Finale planned for the new Leeds Circuit, it’s certainly not a series to miss.
The format will remain similar to previous years and racing cyclists of all abilities, men, women and juniors can take part in the action. These races are handicapped, which means that all categories of riders can ride and be in with a chance of winning.
Each race will be fully traffic managed and run as a race in its own right, however the main focus is on the series overall. Points will be allocated for the first 10 positions (1st - 15 points, 2nd - 12 points, 3rd - 10 points, 4th - 9 points.......down to 10th - 1 point). All the races will be handicapped - 4th cats setting off first then 3rds, then 2nds and lastly 1st cats. Results and cumulative scores will be posted on the Series Facebook page.
Chevin Cycles has put together a quality prize list for the series winners.
