FAQ'S

How do the points work?
You'll earn 12 points if you come 1st, 11 for 2nd, 10 for 3rd, 9 for 4th etc and 1 point for finishing in 12th or lower.

How do I enter?
You do not need to actively enter the South Down Series although we are encouraging you to use the form on this page to help us make sure we can track your progress accurately and give you updates about sponsors and any changes to the programme. You will automatically earn points by entering any of the events above. You do need to register for these individual events using the links above.

I'm kinda new to cycling is this for me?
Time Trial racing is a great intro to enjoying the sport because there are no scary massed starts and nobody is "last" over the line, riders set out in 1 minute intervals. Many riders think of it as challenging themselves to get a personal best versus getting placed. Hill climbs in particular have a great community spirit and riders will be warmly welcomed at any of these events. Riders of all ages and abilities can take part. There are some serious riders who will do amazing times, but there are many riders who are in it for the cake and coffee, a refreshing bike ride and a good laugh.

What are the prizes?
We're working on that! When we've confirmed a sponsor, well publish the details here.
PLEASE NOTE: As per our equal opportunity in sport policy we give equal value prizes to male and females in the same category.

What if I miss a round?
You won't get any points for rounds that you don't attend. For the best chance of winning, you should enter as many of the rounds as you can.

Are we looking for Sponsors?
Yes, we are! We've got a number of opportunities for sponsorship. If you would like to know more please get in touch with peter@lenslab.co.uk

How are the veterans times counted?
We're using your finish time to calculate your position, not veteran standardised times.

THE RULES

Judges decision is always final
1. You can only win the section you are categorised in within the CTT. For example, if you are a vet and you get the fastest senior time as well as the fastest vet time, you will only be eligible to win the vet prizes.
2. There is only one prize per section, if you are tied with another rider, the prize will be shared across all riders who are equally placed.
