It’s that time of year again when we are all getting geared up for the annual Tigers Dirt Crit at Knockburn Loch. We are busy wading through this years prizes, gathering race numbers and thinking up new and wonderful race routes.
This year’s event will be held on the 1st October and we’re all hoping that the weather is as beautiful as it was last year. The event details should be up on the British Cycling website very soon and a message will go out to all members as soon as it does.
We hope that there will be a good representation across the age groups from Tigers and, as always, the races are open to members of all other clubs as well as individuals who want to give it a go. Please register online as soon as you can. It gives us a better idea of numbers and stops those horrible butterflies in our bellies in the run up!
We are looking for people to help marshall the event and would really appreciate offers by any parents who are willing to watch the racing from trackside whilst wearing a high vis and picking up any riders who fail to keep it ‘rubber side down’. Please speak to one of the coaches at the sessions if you are able to help.
In the meantime, we’ll see you at the weekly coaching sessions where riders can hone their race skills and ensure they are in peak physical condition for the race 😉
