The latest BMCR cycling news from the British race scenes, plus comment, analysis, the latest bikes and products, and commuting and safety issues.
We have a provisional date for the Track Champs at Newport Velodrome: Friday 29th to Sunday 30th October.
The timetable can’t be confirmed yet, as indoor velodromes are just starting to re-open, and we don’t yet know what Covid precautions will be required. We hope to be able to run all the usual individual and team championship events.
Following a positive response to the recent FB poll, we were planning to run a one-day event of group training and timed solo rides in November at the Geraint Thomas National Velodrome. However, recent additional restrictions in Wales, and the local restrictions for Newport (particularly the ban on travel into and out of the area) now make this impossible. If things go well, these local measures could be lifted in a months time, but this is far from certain.
We have therefore decided to put plans for this event on hold. If it becomes possible to run the event in late November e.g. Saturday 28th, we will publicise it with at least 3 weeks notice.

TRACK CHAMPS 2020
Despite the best endeavours of Steve Clayton and his team, it has not been possible to arrange for the BMCR Track Champs to be held in Glasgow this year.
The Track Champs will instead take place on 18-20 Sept at Newport.
