Following some easing of restrictions in relation to COVID-19, Banbridge CC hope to commence non-open/club only Individual TT events from Wednesday 1st July.  This will be subject to approval from Cycling Ireland and compliance with local government guidance.

To enable the events to commence a number of changes to our normal processes will be required;

  • These events are open to Banbridge CC members only at the present time, this will be kept under review.

  • Registration will be strictly online only, signing on the night is not permitted.

  • Once registered riders will not be required to sign-on on the night.

  • Following registration closure a list of allocated start time for each rider will be published.

  • Riders should present themselves to the start area no less than 5 mins before their allocated start time.

  • Riders and/or their bikes will not be held at the start line.

  • Strictly no mass congregating at the start /finish area. Social distancing should be maintained as per government guidelines at all times.

  •  It is important riders familiarise themselves and maintain respiratory hygiene and etiquette at all times.

  • Upon completion of the TT, riders should collect any equipment and promptly vacate the event to avoid congregating in crowds. 

  •  Finish times and results will be published online following the event.  Riders should not trouble the timekeepers.

To ensure the health and safety of all participants and volunteers, no participants are to attend the event if they have any suspected illness or symptoms of COVID-19. 

Participants must not attend if they have been unwell or had close contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days. 

All attendees must complete the Cycling Ireland online Self-Assessment Personal Screening Questionnaire, which is available here.
