5 June Criterium - Banbridge Town Centre
BCC Lead Club: Details https://banbridgecc.squarespace.com/banbridgecrit2019
On Wed 5th June BCC will host a Criterium in Banbridge Town Centre as part of the Ulster Championships.
With some purpose and imagination the BICRL will take part as a support race, with the results included as event 4 in this years series. This is invitation only, with clubs required to nominate their respective squads.
In summary; Each club will enter a team of 8 riders, made up of 2 x A3's, 3 x A4's & 3 x LC's. 32 riders in total.
At the end of lap 2 the last 2 riders across the line will be eliminated and thus score 31 and 32 points for their club. The last 2 riders across the line for every lap thereafter are eliminated scoring respective points for their placing, until only 4 riders are left. They get 3 laps on their own to race it out for the win.
If the race is running over it may be that eliminations may stop sooner, allowing a select number of riders to race it out at the end. 2 prime laps at approx 10 mins & 20 mins. Estimated race length 30-35 mins based on a 20/21 mph avg.
