The first ten in each race will score:
There may also be a bonus prime awarded at the discretion of the judges during each race. Points awarded will be 3-2-1. This might not necessarily take place every race.
There will be promotion/demotion between groups if riders perform above/below the ability of their group. The Overall Winner of the 2014 NMRRL will be determined by the NMRRL Committee based on performances from of all the groups.
Each evening 2 of the groups will race with the other group marshalling or having a night off.
All riders will marshal 4 times in the 3 series, one of the series you marshal 2 times, the other 2 series you marshal once with one night off. This is the only way to ensure sufficient marshals.
Marshalling/Nights off are determined by group and NOT on an individual basis.
1) Marshalling is COMPULSORY. A rider must turn up to marshal on their designated night(s). All marshals have to sign on. A substitute is allowed if a rider can't make it or is on holiday but should notify myself or the nominated organiser in advance.
2) If a rider misses their marshalling duty they have the chance to marshal the following week or at the next race they turn up to ride in that series. It is also possible for them to marshal instead of their night off in the same series. If the night missed is the last race of a series then this will be carried over to the first race of the next series.
3) If a rider still does not marshal, the rider will be disqualified from the rest of the 2012 NMRRL and their entry into subsequent series returned and their place in the field offered to another rider.
If the night missed is the last race of a series and the rider still does not turn up to marshal at the first race of the new series, then the rider is disqualified from that series and all subsequent series.
4) If riders are on holiday they should make me aware of the dates so another marshalling date can be arranged beforehand.
Marshals Other Info:
All marshals MUST sign on by 7.00PM LATEST!!!
Marshals must take the 'Cycle Race In Progress' signs and fix in position before the race and return them to the HQ after the race if requested to do so.
Please note that due to the size of the entry this year even ONE missed marshalling duty (if not made up) will be taken into consideration when selecting the field next year.
Organiser: Will pick 2 other people from the marshal list to help with the running of the race well before each event (please).
It is intended that these 3 people DO NOT marshal or drive cars. They are there to oversee all aspects of the race on that evening.
Oversee Signing On/ Hand out numbers/ Collect the remaining numbers after the event and pass on to the next Organiser and collect £10. Signing on sheets will be provided.
Allocate marshals around the course with flags, jackets and warning signs/ Place and collect warning signs where marshals are not present/ Place and collect the Finish area equipment/ Pass on the flags and equipment to the next Organisers.
Allocate 2 camera operators who will also judge at the finish.
Arrange for lead/following/intermediate cars and distribute and collect the warning lights (with Ray Newton)/ Pass on the lights to the next Organiser if necessary.
Ray Newton will be driving one of the lead cars at all events and will help with the distribution/collection of lights.
At the start of each event we need a lead car & a following car with a race controller for each group. There should also be an intermediate car for each group on standby.
Lead Cars: Should be at least 100 meters in front of the groups at all times to allow adequate warning to marshals and other road users.
Medic: Rides in one of the Race Controller's cars at the rear of the field. Will monitor both races.
ALL NMRRL EVENTS ARE RUN UNDER THE RULES OF TLI CYCLING.
