New riders – You need to successfully complete the introductory and Learn to Race sessions.
All racers – We are racing for fun and training. Ideally you get to race within your bike handling comfort zone, but outside your speed and fitness comfort zone. You need to ride safely, with respect for your competitors, and as a good sportsperson (or you will be sent for re-education). The goal is your own tactical and fitness improvement in an environment that is safe for all participants. Remember, most of us need to go to Work/School/training Friday morning.
Enforcement – Will be managed by race officials and race-day volunteers, staff/volunteers and in most cases for the goal of rider education. In cases where this is deemed ineffective penalties can include: additional training followed by skills demonstration, loss of points for the night, loss of points for the season, and loss of racing privileges
Purpose – Despite the throngs of fans and modest prize structure, there are no championship points on the line. TL!’s primary purpose is to train racers to race. Use this opportunity to try strategies you wouldn’t normally use, take chances racing hard even though it may seem like a risky move. Use gears you wouldn’t normally use, see what happens.
Race Format – Yes some of the races are weird, that’s on purpose. You can learn a lot about racing from racing weird races. Also 5 years ago the Elimination and point a lap were strictly TL! Races... Now they are Olympic events, so they copy us… we don’t copy them...
