Vale of Clwyd TT league – Covid 19 arrangements for League re-start


Updated 3rd August 2020


These rules are for the protection of organisers and competitors and are based on guidance provided by the CTT. They are in addition to the VoC League Rules and are expected to be applied at all remaining events in the 2020 calendar. Where possible the rules accommodate our normal custom and practice so we can focus on keeping safe without the distraction of having to deal with new constraints.


Before the event


  • Competitors should not attend if they feel ill in ANY way or if family members have any symptoms.
  • Junior riders (U18) must have arranged Parental Consent. This will be checked by the TT secretary during sign-on.
  • Check you have working rear light – new CTT requirement.


Organisation, sign-on and parking


  • Events are limited to 30 people including officials ( there will be between 2 and 4 officials depending on the event ).
  • Entry shall be on a ‘first come first served’ basis as usual and entrants MUST take the next space on the entry list. Race numbers will be placed on the ground and laid out in order. If pins are removed they must be replaced on the number when the number is returned at the end of the race. Competitors MUST leave the sign-on area immediately after signing on.
  • Entrants MUST bring their own pens to sign-on.
  • Sign-on will start 60 minutes before the advertised start time. No entries will be accepted after 15 minutes before the advertised start time.
  • Entries will not be accepted after the entry limit is reached. Unsuccessful entrants must leave the event area immediately.
  • Payment. The correct fee in Cash is to be deposited in the bucket provided - change will not be given and cannot be taken from the bucket. Fees are £3 Juniors ( host clubs ), £4 Senior and Vet ( host clubs ), £5 Other CTT club ( including Juniors ).
  • D1/9 and D1/5 courses – The waterworks access road ( normal sign-on location ) will be used for sign-on. Due to the limited space the access will be restricted and marshalled to prevent gathering. There is limited parking for officials only at the sign-on area so all competitors and essential support ( eg Parents ) must arrive on 2 wheels or on foot. If you travel to the event in a vehicle then park safely and respectfully and not on the course.
  • D23/10, D1/25 and D600/50 courses – Sign-on will take place at the 10 mile TT finish line. If arriving by vehicle provide a vehicle length of space between your vehicle and other vehicles when parking on the old Ruthin Road. In the unlikely event there isn’t enough room there are other lay-bys and bypassed roads nearby which may be suitable.
  • D37/2 course - The car park at the Council Offices ( normal sign-on location ) will be used for sign-on. If arriving by vehicle provide a vehicle length of space between your vehicle and other vehicles when parking in the sign-on area.
  • D0/11 course - The road margin opposite the start ( normal sign-on location ) will be used for sign-on. There is limited parking available at the sign-on area and competitors are strongly advised to arrive on 2 wheels. If arriving by vehicle provide a vehicle length of space between your vehicle and other vehicles when parking in the sign-on area.


At the event


  • 2m social distance separation shall be maintained at all times.
  • Competitors MUST NOT gather in anyway regardless of current guidelines in the sign-on area or elsewhere.
  • Competitors MUST NOT leave any personal items with the time keeper at the start. Personal items may be left in the sign-on area and collected after the race.


Warm-up and race


  • An elevated resting heart rate or exceptionally quick to react heart rate during warm up can suggest an underlying asymptomatic illness of ANY kind. You should NOT start the event (DNS) and leave immediately. Do not go to the start line if you feel this is the case and notify the organiser of your intention not to start as a result of an adverse warm-up.
  • All warm-ups should be done on the road.
  • Competitors must not arrive at the start more than 7 minutes before their due start time.
  • Competitors shall not be held up or pushed off at the start.
  • Competitors must strictly obey the drafting rules to limit close proximity between competitors whilst racing.
  • No support can be provided if a competitor suffers mechanical difficulties. It is strongly advised that all competitors carry with them a spare inner-tube/tubular, pump and tyre levers if required.
  • It is strongly advised that all competitors carry a mobile phone and take with them the telephone number of the event organiser ( this will be displayed in the sign-on area ). Please telephone the organiser if you have failed to finish the event.


After the race


  • Competitors on finishing MUST NOT stop at the finish
  • Competitors MUST immediately return to the sign-on area and place their race number in the bucket provided.
  • Personal items left in the sign-on area MUST be collected and removed.
  • Competitors MUST immediately leave the sign-on area and then leave the event area – results may only be announced if there is low turn out with no risk of significant gathering.


After the event


  • The results will be posted on the FB group soon after the event has ended.


One final point. To a lesser or greater extent we are all anxious about the Covid 19 virus and this anxiety can lead to social interactions being more difficult especially when authority and compliance are in the air. We should all act respectfully and accept that people who are anxious may exhibit slightly unusual or unexpected behaviour – please make an allowance for this. Thank you in advance.
