In order to enter an open Time Trial you need to be a member of a CTT affiliated club. THIS APPLIES TO BOTH CLUB AND OPEN EVENTS. You must enter all open events in the name of your FIRST CLAIM CLUB, regardless of whether you have second claim membership to another club. It would also be a good idea to have a CTT Handbook. Copies of the handbook can be ordered through the CTT On-Line shop
Once you have decided which event(s) to enter you will need to complete an entry form. The entry form can be found HERE, hardcopies are also available for purchase through the online shop or from the National Secretaries.
When you have completed the entry form you need to send it to the organiser together with the entry fee. The cheque should be made payable to the Promoting Club unless it states otherwise.
Entries should be sent so that they arrive before the normal closing date/time for events.
This is 18:00hrs on the Tuesday 10 to 13 days prior to the event for event being held on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday. For events being held on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday entries close at 18:00 on the Saturday 11 to 13 days prior to the event.
Please note that in “Open Events” competitors are not allowed to carry any form of advertising (club name accepted) on their clothing unless their club has paid the advertising fee in addition to the affiliation fee. This is different to what is allowed in “Club Events”.
Having entered you will receive a copy of the start sheet through the post or by email if you have indicated that on your entry form, 4 or 5 days before the event. This will contain a list of all riders entered and show their allotted start times. The start sheet will also have details of the event HQ, course details as well as other information which may be specific to that event. Please make sure that you read it carefully and take note of any specific instructions. Acceptance of entry for events is based on rider performances and not a first come basis.
If the event is oversubscribed and the organiser has to return your entry, you should get it back within a couple of days of the closing date.
Results will be displayed at the event HQ after the event and you will receive a hardcopy result sheet through the post or email within 28 days of the event.
