As you will be aware British Cycling issued on 27th May 2020 notices extending the suspension of all BC 2020 events and as the Dolan Litherland Circuit League twenty weeks series comes under the category of regional events, this series is extended to the 1st August 2020. If, this decision was not changed during BCs reviews during the next six weeks it would have restricted the 2020 to only three weeks racing which is a very short number of events for the various riders categories for a mid week series. Also, as most of you will be aware as the circuit does not have floodlighting the Litherland Circuit League Committee would not be able to extend the number of Wednesday night’s racing because of the light conditions at that time of the year at Litherland Sports Park. Another problem is that the circuit has not been able to be inspected for more than three months as the Sports Centre has been closed because of the epidemic, In the past it has taken the council two to three weeks for any necessary repairs and safety aspects to be dealt with and completed.
With so much uncertainly when the 2020 series would be able to start the eague Committee have decided after much discussion to cancel this year's series and to start preparing for The Dolan Litherland Circuit League twenty weeks series for 2021.
The Committee is pleased to confirm that due to the current situation in the UK Terry Dolan of Dolan Bikes is happy with the decision taken by the League Committee and has already confirmed Dolan Bikes will sponsor this series in 2021.
