Wednesday August 9 is the pursuit race event!
In XC#7 the starting order will be determined by the faster rider of XC#6. Everyone else will follow by their time gap behind the XC#6 winner. Everyone outside of a 5 minute gap will race from a mass start. Lambateurs will race with 10 second time gaps behind the preceeding riders with the winner of XC#6 starting first.
Registration for the event will start at 6pm and the Lambateurs and Mini-Lambs will start at 7pm in Kinsmen Park.
All registered Lambateur riders must participate in a preride of the race course at 6:40pm.
You must be a Blacksheep member to participate in this event.
Our membership is growing, and so is our need for volunteers! Here is what we need help with at this event:
Course Marshalls: 3-4 people spread out on course to help direct riders in the right direction.
