2012 Events: Pedal Pushers Circuit Race League

There is a new circuit race league based on the Lincolnshire side of the East Midlands region.

A series of seven dates to ensure at least one local event every month from March through to September, held under British Cycling regulations.

Series co-ordinator Simon Cocker says that Witham Wheelers have been holding coaching sessions at RAF Barkston Heath (nr Grantham) for the last four years and promoted the first open event on the circuit last April, after which there was a lot of positive feedback.

With an obvious unfulfilled demand for events in the area, particularly for Youth riders, by working with local clubs there is now a season long competition providing separate events for Youth C/DE/, Youth A/B, 4th category, Ladies and 2/3/4 categories.

To give some variety, not all events in the league will be held at Barkston Heath, with the Yarborough Leisure Centre circuit at Lincoln also being used.

Events planned for 2012
Sat 17 March Barkston Heath Witham Wheelers
Sat 21 April Barkston Heath Bourne Wheelers
Sun 6 May Barkston Heath** Spalding CC
Sun 10 June Yarborough Leisure Centre Lincoln VC Lincoln
Sun 1 July Barkston Heath Rutland Velo
Sun 5 Aug Yarborough Leisure Centre Lincoln Lincoln Whs
Sun 9 Sept Barkston Heath Spalding CC

**Replaces the popular Spalding Town Centre criteriums unfortunately cancelled due to escalating costs. The structure in the first year will be straight forward, with each event open to individual entry via the British Cycling on-line system with entry on the day for any further places available up to the allocated field limit.

Thanks to sponsorship from Neil Sentence at PEDALPUSHERS based in Grantham there will be prizes awarded for each individual race plus an overall prize fund for the winners in each category over the season long competition.
