Tuesday Night is Race Night!
We use a variety of formats and routes, but most Tuesday Night Races are either pursuits or reverse pursuits (fastest group leaves first) that start at Condie Nature Refuge. The 2020 schedule is tentatively set, but routes and meeting time/location will be confirmed via Facebook generally by the Sunday before. Cancellations due to weather on race day will also be posted on Facebook.
Most nights we will spit into smaller groups so everyone gets a fantastic race experience.
Group A: CAT 1/2/3 rider, or substantial racing experience (Zwift A/B). Expect very fast racing conditions. Considered the ‘scratch’ group.
Group B: CAT 4/5 rider, or moderate racing experience (Zwift C/D). Fast racing.
Group C: Masters riders, younger riders, and intermediate riders. This is the next step up from Thursday Adventure Rides. No Drop Group; be prepared to ride around 30 kph
Based on membership feedback, we are implementing rules to help ensure and prioritize rider safety. These rules will be enforced to ensure the safety and competitive integrity of our events:
One Metre Centre Line Boundary
1) Riders, unless explicitly instructed otherwise or encountering a left turn or turnaround point, are to remain to the right side of the road as much as possible. The right side of the road is defined as: At least one metre (3 feet) or more of any painted median line, or at least one metre (3 feet) or more to the right of a virtual median line on a road without a painted median line.
Garbage Dump Hill Stop Sign
2) Riders are required to come to a complete stop at the stop sign when going down the garbage dump hill into Lumsden or at the stop sign at the bottom of the James Street Hill. A complete stop is defined as placing both feet unclipped on the ground. Stop signs on other courses which are subject to this rule will be announced and identified on the course on race day.
Speed Limits and School Zones
3) Riders will be expected to obey any municipal or local school zone regulations (this applies primarily to the Lumsden area), and no more than 30 kph in a school zone.
If any member observes anyone breaking any of these rules, they shall immediately notify the acting Race Director (“RD”) of the breach and advise the RD who was present to witness what occurred. The RD will be the individual who is organizing the race of the day. The RD shall immediately convene an Adjudicative Panel (“AP”) consisting of the RD and two other members of the TNR Committee (myself, James Korpan, Llewellyn Poidevin, Alan Sales, Steve Trott, Russell Down). Priority should be given to members of the TNR Committee who were present at the event in question. If the VP of TNR is present, the VP shall serve on the AP. If there are not sufficient members of the TNR Committee to comprise the AP, the RD may request that a Club member at large act on the AP. The AP shall interview the Complainant, other witnesses and the member who is the subject of the Complaint. The AP shall then meet and determine whether the member committed the alleged infraction. The progressive consequences for infractions are:- 1st infraction: Verbal warning- 2nd infraction: Written warning- 3rd infraction: Disqualification from remainder of 2022 TNR events. Notwithstanding the progressive penalties set as above, the AP has discretion to disqualify a member for the remainder of 2022 TNR events in the event of an egregious infraction. Egregious infractions are infractions which cause a direct and significant danger to the rider, other riders, or members of the public. An example of an egregious infraction is purposefully crossing the centre line (virtual or otherwise).Any rider being disqualified has a right to appeal to the RCC Executive Committee, but they must notify the Executive in writing within 7 days of receiving the disqualification. The RCC Executive Committee will then convene and decide, within 7 days of receiving the appeal.
Road racing is team racing. RCC has adopted team nights to allow our members a chance to practice team racing strategy and experience the excitement and drama that comes with team racing! On team nights, the race director for the night will divide everyone into teams. Depending on attendance and to keep things fresh, we will mix up the teams and often divide the race into categories to suit attendance (e.g., Elite, Master’s, Women’s categories).S
Fast laps on a safe, fun circuit. We are planning a criterium at Conexus Arts Centre and a night at the Kings Park Speedway. Details to come!
Every Third Tuesday of the Month will be a Gravel event – RCC x ORS. Each Gravel night will also have a Kids Gravel Night as well with a slightly shorter route that the kids can follow.
Same old race, but this time for all the marbles.
We encourage new riders who want to try a ride to start with our Thursday Adventure Rides. We have a try-a-ride policy, and if you don’t already have an SCA membership, the night’s ride leader will have a waiver for you to sign.
We also occasionally hold events in conjunction with the other cycling clubs. These nights will be identified on the schedule.
