Noel Teggart RR and Sperrin MTB Leisure Event Open for Entry

Noel Teggart Memorial Races Sunday 9th June
Pre-entry for the Noel Teggart Memorial races, promoted by Banbridge CC on Sunday 9th June,  will open from 18:00hrs this Friday (31/05/13).  Entries will only be accepted via email to race organiser Aaron Wallace ( aarwallace@gmail.com), emails received prior to 18:00 on Friday will not be valid or counted.

It is hoped that entry numbers will support a separate A1*/A1/A2 & A3 race, judgement on this will be taken by the organising committee once entries are submitted.  If numbers are not sufficient to support this a handicapwill be applied for the A3 & A2 groups.  As is the norm a separate A4 will also be promoted.

A full complement of youth races will also be available on the day, however pre-entry is not required.

Payment for entry will be taken on the day at sign-on.  Entry fee for all Senior riders will be £10,  Juniors £5 and all youth categories £3.
