KCC are pleased to announce details of the 2017 Winter Track Series...
This year we have introduced a few new innovations to keep things interesting.
Each round will have a focus event but generally with other events to suit all riders.
For example: Round 1: Derbys/Match Sprints will suit sprinters but other events on the program will suit endurance riders.
All events will be run to suit riders of all standards. We will run races to accommodate the entries we receive - novice, little-tackers, junior, senior, para-cyclists, male/female only, maybe even masters and elite specific races. If you nominate we will put on races to suit you.
Grades will be determined based on the entries received. You may ride Senior D one round but Senior B the next - it will depend on the number of entries and we aim to grade riders according to ability. However, for example, if we only get two riders generally considered Senior D grade - you may be graded up to Senior C grade.
A new innovation this year to mix things up a bit - each round we will ask riders to vote for a Feature race from a list of choices, which will vary each round. Kind of like a mystery event!
That race will be the "prize" race and awards given based on the result. So you might get to choose from 1. Points, 2. Elimination, 3. Italian Sprint, 4. Longest Lap or perhaps 1. Keirin, 2. Handicap, 3. Snowball Points, 4. LeMans Start Derby The event with the most votes wins and we will run graded races to suit.
As with previous seasons, over the course of the Winter Track rounds we will award points based on results to all riders. These points will go towards the following Series:
