The 2015 Skills Championship will be taking place on Saturday 3 October at Palmer Park, and online entry is now open.
Please note: the 3 October is our contingency date in case the weather forces the postponement of the club track championships. In the event of the track champs being moved to the 3 October the skills champs will happen at a later date (to be confirmed if required).
The skills championship provides a chance for you to test your bike handling skills, and covers a wide-range of different tests. We have a change to the format this year to help focus on your skills ability. Rather than a single skills course, this year we will have a set of different skills ‘zones’ around the red track. Each one will feature a different bike skill and you will gain points depending on how well you get on. Every rider will take part in each skill zone, and also complete a short timed skill, to be used in the event of a tie-break. Don’t worry, the PPV skills you all love (or hate) will be there; bottle pick up, slalom, track stand etc.
All riders must use a freewheel bike (no fixed wheel allowed), and it must be the bike you usually use for PPV freewheel sessions.
The start time will be confirmed nearer the day but we anticipate it being around 9.30am — we have a lot of you to get through in the morning. We will be running activities alongside the skills while you are waiting to take your turn.
Please sign-up using the online form below. There are no entries on the day and sign-up will shut on Saturday 26 September.
If you have any questions please let us know.
