A series of 17 ITT events across the whole season promoted by clubs within the SCCA.
Present Government and CTT policy does not allow Time Trials to run. Government policy for leaving national lockdown indicates that it is likely clubs will be able to promote events. Clubs are working hard to plan club series and their round of this competition. The provisional series dates should be available here from 16th March.
Check with the promoting club for their entry requirements before the event. Many clubs are not accepting on the day cash payments and may have specific requirement for entrants to meet Covid 19 regulations.

For riders looking to take advantage of the wide variety of Time Trial courses in Shropshire there’s The SB Sports Injuries Series, covering 17
County-wide events, giving riders opportunities to try out other club’s courses and to try stretching themselves over longer distances.
SB Sports Injuries Series – how to win
Based on a range of Association and solo club events promoted by member clubs, the SB Sports Injuries Series is an Inter-club Series designed to give riders a taste of competition against riders from other clubs, where they are assured a warm welcome to step up from competing in just their own club’s 10 mile event. The series acts as a bridge to entering Open events, with a simple entry-on-the-line format and some longer distance as well as some sporting courses designed to enrich the time trialling experience.
All riders from SCCA member clubs automatically qualify for points, whilst Shropshire-based riders of non-affiliated clubs can also join in by taking out private SCCA membership. For 2020 there are 17 rounds, with bonus points awarded for longer events to encourage riders to stretch themselves. Points from a rider’s highest scoring 12 rounds count towards cumulative positions in each category, with separate points awarded over four categories:
- Veterans on Standard – for over-40 riders, based on how much a target time is beaten (or missed) by. Standards become more generous with age
- Juniors – 12-18 year olds (18 year olds are classed as Juniors for the calendar year their 18th birthday falls in)
It is thus possible for a rider to meet the criteria to be ranked for different points in as many as three categories. Gold, Silver and Bronze County medals are awarded in each category, with the winners also holding an annual trophy each.
Points are awarded as follows:
- Standard: 20 points for a win, 18 points for second down to 2 points for finishing
- 25-29 miles: 26 points for a win, 24 for second down to 4 points for finishing
- 30 miles and over: 30 points for a win, 28 for second down to 6 points for finishing
A tie results in both (or all) tied riders being awarded the higher points, so for instance two riders tying for runner-up spot in a 10 mile event: both receive 18 points.
Non-affiliated riders are welcome to compete, although they will not qualify for points.
Note that from 2020 a fixed or flashing red rear light is COMPULSORY when starting: no light, no ride due to need to comply with insurance conditions.
Reminders of when and where each event takes place will be published a day or two before each event on the SCCA Twitter feed, including a MapMyRide of each course which can also be viewed by clicking on the course description below.
Please be aware a new regulation was voted in at last year’s CTT National Council and it is now compulsory for all competitors to fix a working rear red light to their machine in all CTT events, both open and club.
