Open Season is back for 2014 with some new organising clubs. We will be updating this page with race programs and flyers as we get them! After a bit of a change for the August meeting, a very successful Keirin event, we're back to business as usual with the CS Grupetto Open Track Meeting, featuring the CS Gruppetto Team Sprint and the Ron Fowler Memorial Roadmans 25 Mile Scratch Race (Full program below)
On the Rivet - CS Grupetto Open Track Meeting - 2.30pm Saturday 6th September
After four successful years of the Open Season series, Herne Hill's open race meetings on the first Saturday of every month are back! All events are promoted by a local club, doing their bit for the local race scene:
- 5th April - promoted by VC Londres
- 3rd May - promoted by Addiscombe CC
- 7th June - promoted by CC Hackney
- 5th July - promoted by Dulwich Paragon
- 2nd August - Keirin 2014, promoted by Rollapaluza
- 6th September promoted by CS Grupetto
Clubs will put their own stamp on their event. Some may add sprint events, some may add madison's, each event will have its own personality. All events will follow a similar structure though. Racing will be split into senior A and B categories, and youth Under 12 and Over 12. Racing starts at 2.30pm and all events are registered as British Cycling Regional C+ which means license points in each race. While there will be some special races on the programme, most races will be familiar and accessible to the average Track League rider.
Youths £3, Juniors £8, Seniors £15 - entry on the line. Each event has a guaranteed £500 in prize money, with prizes being given for every race in every category.
Open Season offers a relaxed but competitive environment and is very popular with our riders. Like many of our public events, it is family friendly and free to spectate, so come along to support your nearest and dearest and enjoy a great mix of racing and entertainment.
