As riding of bikes is NOT permitted in the Litherland Sports car park because of safety concerns by Sefton Council and the Litherland Circuit League Committee therefore, competitors will have a minimum of five minutes warm up period and familiarisation of the circuit prior to the start of their 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 (MCDG) website:

The Riders Registration Fees for the 2021 Series and Entry Fees per event for this year will be:

 

                                                £12 for Senior Category Males over 18

                                                £3 for Youth D & E Boys and Girls categories

 

Due to the Covid-19 situation all riders’ entries for this year’s series will only be taken “on line” via the BC events website and entries will close on the Monday evening before that week’s races.  BC charge an admin fee a total of £1.00p per entry for this service.

 

Youth A riders who hold a current BC 2021 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 tables in the final event of each evening’s races for the Litherland Circuit League 2021 points competition.

 

Riders finishing positions points in each of the races will be shown on MCDG website.

 

To take some of the pressure off the local clubs who will be providing the stewards for the six 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.
