VTTA Covid19 Update

Veterans Time Trials Association

National Association for the over 40 year old racing cyclist

The CTT has suspended all time trials (both open and club) until 30th June 2020. But British Cycling announced provisional dates for restarting cycling activities on 27th May – please see separate news item about this.

Suspension of CTT events may continue beyond 30th June but we are waiting to see updates on their website. From the British Cycling announcement it may be that time trials could restart on 1st August.

The VTTA National Executive Committee has cancelled the national championships for 15 miles on 29th March,10 miles on 25th April, and 30 miles on 30th June. We have re-arranged championships where possible for later in the season. For the 10 mile we have a revised date of Saturday 12th September and for the 15 mile the revised date is Sunday 20th September. The National 24 Hour Championship, which was being organised by Mersey Roads Club for July, has also been cancelled.

An update on championships and other matters was sent in a special issue newsletter to all VTTA members in late April.

Our country, and indeed the world, is slowly emerging from a very difficult period. While we are all keen to return to our sports, we need to do all we can to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities safe and healthy. So let’s see the CTT response and hopefully we can enjoy a restart of racing in a responsible manner.
