Following the first trial of the new gridding system on Sunday next week’s gridding will use the same format but the gridding sheets will be in the same area as sign on but not on the same tables, if possible we are looking to get a board to stick them to. don’t forget it is the riders responsibility to ensure their name is highlighted. Please do not query your gridding with sign on but with the Cheif Commissaire, Tim Evans.
The gridding is based on a riders average results over the season less their worst result to allow for mechanicals etc, this is to ensure the starts are as safe as possible. This is very different to series rankings.
Next week’s gridding will be based mainly on Skiptons results with some of those who have advised me they couldn’t ride slotted in. If you didn’t ride at Skipton and propose to ride at Northallerton and haven’t told me please post on the facebook page or e-mail YCCA@hotmail.co.uk before Friday 7pm. The same applies to V45-49’s who are going to change race. If you feel you should be gridded and haven’t been you need to advise me at least 10 minutes before the race and I will have the average results from summer and winter with me to confirm your thoughts.
