Barnesbury CC are looking at developing the rider pathway (from club to Country). The information about RSR's have been posted separately, the purpose of these is specifically coaching and NOT racing. The inter Regional Competition is something completely different. The Inter Regions are a fun, competitive Event where each Region brings its top 13 and 14 year olds to compete against each other, not only through racing, but skills competitions too. As we will be looking for each Regions very best, Apprentices will be eligible. ( providing they were born in 2002 or 2003) and the competition will run over a weekend. The main tests will stay the same as previous years: Watt bike, 60m sprints, manuals, wheelies and bunny hops, but we will throw in a few different ones to keep Riders and Coaches on their toes. Regions will select 10 riders 6 boys/ 4 girls born in 2002/ 2003 ( No 2001 Riders as this would be the time they may be considered for ODP and would no longer be of an Apprentice age. The odd 2004 Rider that is exceptional may be considered if a team is low on numbers).
It looks like the event will be on the 17th and 18th September 2016 (TBC), so there is plenty of time to develop a coaching plan to achieve the regional team (see our coaches). British Cycling will provide accommodation for the Riders, Team Manager and 3 Coaches on the Saturday night as well as Dinner Saturday evening, Sunday morning breakfast and lunch. Regions will be expected to sort out any additional costs, so it is hopefully going to be an event our club can start to get involved in. PLAN EARLY AND ACHIEVE!
