Newby TT questions

Charlie Ingram
Hi All,

I'm thinking to trying to build a couple of the interclub TTs into my training, if my questions are easily answered elsewhere please could someone post the links? Otherwise I have a couple of questions...

1. Can you just turn up on the night or do you need to register?
2. I have access to a Ceepo Venom, but it's not UCI legal, can I ride it at an interclub TT for the training? Would I receive a placement on the local results or be left of the list? Otherwise, I'm on my road bike.
3. Can anyone recommend a reasonably flat 10 miler to start?
4. My coach would like me to add a 50 or 100 miler towards the end of the year - any recommendations?

Cheers,
Charlie Ingram

1. For inter club TT's you can just turn up on the night and sign on and get a number. Try and sign on at least 30 minutes before it starts. You can then have a decent warm up. You won't need to pay anything as the £4 entry fee is included in your annual membership. For open events however you need to enter in advance.

2. You can ride your Ceepo Venom at inter club and open TT's.

3. There's a flat 10 miler next Thursday at East Peckham/Paddock Wood. See Club Diary for details. There's another one on this course later in the month as well.

4. Have a look on the CTT website for events at distances you want to race. Kent TT's are coded Q, Sussex and Surry G and Essex and Suffolk - E.

Thanks Martin, I will definitely take you up on the offer of advice, there's a 100 at the end of July I'm looking at entering.
I couldn't make last Thursday evening so I had a go at the brands hatch course, during the day, great fun managed 23:45 on my road bike, so looking forward to trying Rob's Ceepo over the same course. Hoping I'll be able to make a few inter club evening sessions soon,
Cheers,
Charlie
