Team sprints 27/9 - now on any FIS compliant skis

Test your pace in our autumn races at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit and get valuable practice for on-snow events.

The September race is essentially a fun interval session - team sprints in skating technique, on any FIS compliant skis, so you can use your fast skis.  They start with a one lap time trial. Individual placings in the London Series are determined on this. This can also count as a lap record attempt.

Teams of two will then be made up, based on the above results. These team sprints will probably be run as two massed start races, depending on numbers.

Afterwards there will be some short (500m) knockout sprints on the same skis.

Electronic timing for October 17

The October 4 hour event will be timed electronically, courtesy of the cycling community, who have loaned the kit to us for the day. So take this opportunity to clock up the laps when they should be recorded with total accuracy.

For each race, the entry fee is £10.00 on the day or £6.00 in advance [+£5.00 insurance fee for non SSE affiliated club members].
