WANTED: Off Road Commissaires

The College of Commissaires is seeking expressions of interest for off-road commissaires from Ulster. Interested candidates must have been a member of Cycling Ireland for at least 3 years and have a keen interest in off-road cycling (cross-country or downhill). It is expected that a one-day training session will be taking place in the near future most likely on a weekend day. This appeal is being spread across Ireland and the final date and venue for the training has not been set.

At the moment we need to get a list of names to Cycling Ireland.

It is hoped that volunteers will come forward from clubs who are currently involved in running off-road events but it is not limited to these clubs.

The role of a commissaire is to ensure that Cycling Ireland rules are adhered to. The commissaire does not need to timekeep, start races, set time gaps or arrange gridding. They just need to supervise that this is happening. He/she would work closely with the event organisers and provide information where necessary. They are also there to make decisions in cases of rule infringements.

It is hoped that there will be sufficient numbers being trained so that commissaires can work in teams at off-road events.

If you are interested please email me your name, club name (if any), the length of time you have been a Cycling Ireland member and your contact details. It would be appreciated if you could do this before close of play on Friday 24 January 2014.

If you require any further information please feel free to drop me an email.
