All competitors, please take note the following important changes for this season. They have also been added to the Welcome to the South West Cyclo-cross League page, so please take the time to read through it if you haven't already done so.

 

Club Kit

If you are a Youth or Senior rider and member of a cycling club, you are expected to wear your official club kit while racing. If you are a member of more than one club, you must wear the kit belonging to the club that you used to register to the league. Take this opportunity to represent your club and the sponsors that support them. Commissaires will use their discretion regarding the issue of warnings for those repeatedly not wearing their relevant club kit.

If you are an independent rider you are not permitted to wear any replica team kit.

These rules do not apply to under 12s or novice riders, but if you have a club kit, we would love to see you representing them.

 

Pits

In races for the U12's, no exchange of equipment is allowed

 

Flags

New warning flags will come into use this cross season. These flags will be positioned at the pits and the start/finish area but they may also be waved at you by a commissaire out on the course.

Yellow Flag – This will warn you of a potential hazard ahead of you on the course. This may be a rider down, damage to the course or a sudden change in course due to an incident.

YELLOW FLAG MEANS PROCEED WITH CAUTION

Red Flag – In the unlikely event this is shown, please immediately stop the race and await further instruction.

RED FLAG MEANS STOP THE RACE IMMEDIATELY.
