News from the National Clarion

National Secretary Ian Clarke send the following news from Clarion HQ


As the season closes for most of us, hardy cyclo-crossers keep going, there's still one more Clarion race championship and that is next weekend:

National Clarion CX Champs
Clarion Cyclo-cross championships will be decided in the Nottingham Clarion event on the 19th of November.

Details can be found here
and here

Racing starts at 12pm for U10s right through to seniors etc. at 2.15pm. This is the last Clarion Championships of the year. Please forward this email to any clubmates who ride cyclo-cross.

It's time to spread the word to your section clubmates and claim your awards for the season. Titles such as Clubman, Clubwoman, most meritorious section, best novice, most meritorious junior are awards that many sections fail to claim and we are sure there are many worthy contenders out there.

On top of this you can claim for club records see here for current records and then send your claim to racing secretary: 
Francis Grafton 29 Cyril Road, West Bridgford, NOTTINGHAM NG2 5JW.

Also don't forget the time trial champions claims (BAR) and the road points claim which is awarded on the number of BCF point recorded. We include a copy extract of the rules for awards so that you can check if you could have won something or want to claim something.

Easter Meet 2012 - Buxton
Details will soon be announced with details of events, rides, races and venue/hotel. 

Expect a hot one organised by Stockport Clarion. For details please contact Duncan McLaren on, but give him chance to send out details first.

Set in the beautiful spa town of Buxton we last went there in 1965. Plenty for all the family, easy rides along the Tissington and Manifold trails, or gruelling rides over the toughest climbs in the area.

National Treasurer needed
Following Peter Roscoe's standing down last year, a successor never came forward. This has left the role with Peter who has kindly keep things ticking over.

We desperately need a National Treasurer and appeal to you all to step forward and help out the Clarion in this critical role. Peter will give a complete handover to the new officer. Please email me directly if you are interested.
