We are overwhelmed by the number of riders turning up to our first 2 events. For safety reasons we are only allowed to race with 60 riders, and unfortunately, for the first time in the 9 years of the event, we had to turn riders away last Thursday.
We would like to say thank you to the unfortunate riders for their understanding and accepting this obvious disappointment.
To avoid disappointment and long queues signing in we trialed pre-entry for this week's race and already have the maximum of 60 riders entered. We recognize that riders that were not in attendance on the night will miss out on this weeks race and would also find it difficult to pre-enter for the following event using this system.
As a result, we are now looking into setting up an online entry system in time for the 4th event on 30th May. Although it doesn't change the problem of the rider cap, it does give everyone a fair chance of entering races and also avoids the queues and turning people away on the night.
We are planning to allow riders to enter any of the remaining 9 events and pay online. This system will only be available to current TLI card holders and entry fees will be non-refundable. The rider list will be viewable and if there are spaces you can still enter on the line.
We hope to have something up and running by Friday. So please watch this space for further information.
Just to reiterate, this weeks race is completely full and we will not be accepting any entries on the night. Please share this with anyone you know that this affects.
Thanks for your support and understanding.
