It is race day for the juniors once again on 16th September as Stafford Road Club Go-Ride hosts race 5 in their 6 race series.

The cost per rider is £3.
The event will take place at the Tackeroo Campsite on Cannock Chase. There are no changing rooms or toilets available onsite.
PLEASE NOTE: These events are suitable for novice racers only, i.e. do not hold a BC racing licence and do not compete regularly in organised racing events. Experienced riders attending will not be eligible for awards and prizes.
Bike – bring your own road bike, mountain bike or cross bike.
Safety helmet – helmets must be worn to race and should be in good condition with the appropriate CE standards stickers attached.
Gloves – it is always preferable to wear gloves when racing.
Clothing – needs to be appropriate for the weather conditions and a physical activity. Warm clothing should be available for breaks between races. Ensure that clothing is not loose enough to entangle with the bike.
Food and drink – access to a drink of water or juice is always a good idea when doing physical activity; and also a small food snack, especially for afterwards when the session has been strenuous.
Clothing, helmet and bikes will be checked before the racing starts.
