As riding of bikes is NOT permitted in the Litherland Sports car park because of Sefton Borough’s safety concerns of the other users present at the sports centre and therefore, competitors will have a minimum of five minutes warm up period and familiarisation of the circuit prior to the start of the events but they must wait until the Commissaire at the entrance to the circuit gives the OK for riders to enter onto the circuit.
After each evening's racing, the Litherland Circuit League Recorder will award points as per the Litherland Circuit League Points schedule, which is shown on the Merseyside Cycling Development Group website:
There are No Riders Registration Fees for the 2020 Series
and the Entry Fees per event for this year will be:
£3.00 for Youth D & E Girls and Boys Categories
£5.00 for Youth A, B and C Boys and Girls Categories
£10.00 for Senior Female Category riders over 18
£10.00 for Junior Male and Female Category Riders
£12.00 for Senior Category Males over 18
Every race is entry on the night only and riders can register on their first night of attendance but to avoid lengthy delays at the “signing on” it will help greatly if, as many as possible riders could register on the following BC "on line" link:
BC charge for use of this service is a total of £1.01p. However, if, riders prefer not to use this service but as it is important that as many riders as possible are registered prior to their first visit to Litherland Sports Park evening series there is postal registration form shown on the MCDG website which should be completed and should be sent to the LCL treasurer seven days before their first night of attendance to allow for postal delays. The LCL Treasurer’s address shown on the bottom of the registration form.
Youth A riders who hold a current BC 2020 dispensation will be allowed to “ride up” i.e. the girls in the ladies race and the boys can race in the final event of the evening providing they have obtained the Chief Commissaire's approval after showing him their BC dispensations prior to signing on and before being allocated competitors numbers for these events. These riders will be classified as part of the Junior Ladies and the 3rds/4ths Junior Male categories table for the Dolan Litherland Circuit League 2020 points competition.
To take some of the pressure off the local clubs who provide the stewards for the twenty weeks series of racing the League Committee are looking for parents and friends of riders who would be able to assist with some of the stewarding duties on these nights. If, you know of anyone who would like to help on particular nights of the series would you please ask them to contact the League Secretary so that they can give their details and the dates of the evenings they would be available to help. As a small thank you, the League Committee do provide the stewards with free tea/coffee on the nights of their assistance with the running of the events.
A reminder as the light conditions are especially very limited on the first four nights of the series and even though riders can register on their first night of their attendance it would be very much appreciated by the LCL Committee and the other riders attending if, competitors would register as soon as possible. Either via the "BC on line" link (the details as shown above) or by post to reduce the delays at the signing on desk on their first night’s attendance.
