The above races are open time trials and therefore all entries for weekend time trials close on the Tuesday 11 or 12 days before the event. The events are conducted under Cycling Time Trials (CTT) Regulations and you need to enter using the official CTT entry form. This form can be found under the information tab / rider info / forms & guidance notes on the following website. The event calendar which provides organizer name and address and entry fee / event information can be found under events / events list.
The entry process is very easy and don’t let the fact that it’s an open event daunt you as the atmosphere at races is very relaxed and pleasant and unlike a massed start road race, you can ride at your own pace and nobody is bothered where you come in the results. Riders are of both sexes and all ages take part and all look forward to the tea and biscuits and chat after the event. The CTT website link is below.
Please have a go as I’m sure you’ll have fun and the first three finishers in each championship receive a medal, but everybody enjoys themselves. If you need any further help please contact me on the forum by e-mail or by phone or if you see me around just ask.
