New for 2020: "Ligue de Mercredi"
Building on the success of the 2019 season when we ran two separate events, one for men & one for women. For the 2020 season we will be making a few changes, we will still be running our "Budget Busting" mid-week promotions but for this season there will be three events. The new Ligue de Mercredi will be for pre-registered "local riders". More information below...
Each event is an "Open Event".
Entry online via the CTT site, link here...
You can leave us a "paper entry".
Entries will normally close on the Thursday for the following Wednesday.
Start sheets will be published on the Monday prior to the event. No postal startsheets.
The usual competitions and prizes will still be in place. £8 or £9 entry fee, depending on venue.
Ligue de Mercredi is limited to thirty local riders who have signed-on before the 25th February.
Ligue de Mercredi riders are not legible for national ranking points.
Some events may have additional T&C but just remember to leave those long socks at home.
Entry to "Ligue" events is restricted to "Ligue Riders" who have registered by the 25th February & is limited to just thirty riders.
For the 2020 Summer Series ...a3crg are introducing a new initiative, the “Ligue de Mercredi”. The “Ligue” will run over the 12 events (11 scoring - 7 counting) and will be hosted on a Wednesday evening alongside our men’s and women’s open events.
The Ligue is open to anyone from a CTT registered club and will cost £5 to join, the fee will go entirely to purchase of the end of season trophies. That said the Ligue is not really for the sharp end of club riders, more the “local” Middle Markers & isn’t exclusive to …a3crg riders. It is an opportunity for those local riders who struggle to get into events on the A3 on a regular basis.
There is one small caveat to joining, the expectation is that each Ligue member will help out at two events throughout the season; this could involve marshalling, cafe duties, collecting signage or recording and calling back times with the finish timekeepers.
It’s just an idea we think is worth a try, it probably isn't a perfect solution, thought for evening events we are limited to 80 riders. Remember the other two events on the same evening are open either to men or women and both these events will be fully open & eligible for ranking points unlike the "Ligue".
Is there a league fee? Yes, the same as other years it helps to cover the costs of the Trophies this year it is £5.00 but free for those previous League Riders who have entered all the events.
What happens if I pre-enter but can't make it on the night, will I get a refund or credit? No, it is just the same as a DNS in any other Open. Any rider on the start sheet we will have to pay a levy whether they ride or not. It is part of the problem we had last year, riders who missed a few events thought they should be able to ride the Buriton event for free.
How do you choose who rides when events are oversubscribed? Entry to events when oversubscribed are based on recorded performances achieved in "open events" in the last three seasons, it is not on a first come first served basis.
Should I tick the reserve box? Yes, there are always riders who can't make it and we often use ten reserves, it is rare for reserves to not get a ride, we always update the reserve riders on the progress of non-starters.

...a3crg was formed in October 2000. We are a non-profit making organisation whose main aims are:
To promote Cycle Racing in the vicinity of the A3 between Liphook and Petersfield, Hampshire.
To ensure each promotion is an "Event" for the riders, rather than just a "Ride".
To operate as a premier level time trial team for men & women of any ability.
Fast and hilly TT courses created by us!
Although timetrialling is its core discipline, the team encourages all forms of cycling including road cycling and mountainbiking. The team have regular social events including training camps, club runs and winter turbo sessions.
