It’s that time of the year again, where ALL Slipstreamers Members – regardless of age or race experience – have the opportunity to challenge themselves in 5 cycling categories i.e. Skills, Time Trials, Road, Mountain Bike, Track; with a view to becoming the Club Champion in their age category. Click here for a recap on previous Club Champs, which includes reflections from members who took part, links to individual event reports, and results. Photos from the various previous events can be found on our Flickr site here.
This a great way to participate in healthy and fun competition in a familiar environment at Hillingdon with fellow Slipstreamers, even if you have NEVER raced before, never dreamed of being on a road bike, never contemplated giving mountain biking a go, never considered experiencing the thrill of track, and never worked out the point of a time trial! For a full explanation of how Club Champs works, what to expect, and answers to any and all FAQs, visit this page here.
Reminders and the full schedule for each event will be posted on the News Hub a few days before the main event, so do be sure to bookmark this page and keep an eye out for this.
Please note that booking for the events shall close on the Thursday before the event in order to prepare all the admin. No late bookings shall be accepted!
