Launch of the 2017 FTC Time Trial League and Championships:
After a successful TT session last week the club is announcing the following TT league dates and Structure:
26th July – CTT Georgetown League
2nd August – CTT Georgetown League
23rd August – CTT Georgetown League
6th September – Club TT CHAMPIONSHIP – Georgetown course.
V simple – your best 3 times are added up and the league standings are based on the accumulative time.
We’ve decided to use the 11.2km Georgetown road course for all events to encourage participation. It’s a short ride or drive from Glasgow. No busy dual carriageways and it’s pretty much flat!!
Juniors over 14 years old can ride as long as parents are happy with them riding solo on public roads. No gear restrictions in place
we are also using the CTT Georgetown League for 3 of our events. this is a freindly, volunteer organised series taking place on many Wednesdays through the summer. The club is affiliated to this organisation and taking part couldn’t be simpler – registration is 6:15-7:00pm on the day of the event – turn up at the car park by Aulds bakery in Inchinnan industrial estate (PA4 9RZ) and sign onto the start sheet with “Fusion Triathlon Club” as your club, Pay £3, pin your number on your back and then ride at allocated time!!! I’ll be there for the first one at least for anyone unsure. First rider starts at 7:15 and you start in sign on order so if want an early start be there at 6:15 to register early. One important point – do not ride on the Georgetown Road for warm up – use other roads towards Bishopton or in Inchinnan Industrial Estate for warm up. There is a facebook page for this: https://www.facebook.com/GeorgetownLeague/
For the Champs on 6th September we will need ~4 helpers to sort our own sign on, starters and timekeepers. Please let us know if you can help out for an hour / 90 mins on this date. Start time for first rider 7:30pm. Sign on 6:30-6:45
Last week we had 15 folk at short notice for a wee informal session – no reason why we can’t but 20+ folk at these events. TT is you against the clock – not others so challenge yourself and push your cycling forwards.
