    I showed interest on the event page and missed the link here.
    If it is not too late, please consider me for a team.

    I’m hoping to compete as well as help organise this year. So I am in. Based on a brief discussion at Poll Hill last week, I think Hamish and Paul A look like they are as well – bizarrely, the three of us were within 8 seconds of each other on that TT!

    Hi Sean, Can you ride an interclub 10 mile before the September 4 up at Brands Hatch, it will give the Avanti team organisers an idea of where to fit you in a suitable team.
    I love your photo – I’m sure we have met.

    Hi all.
    In years past when we entered teams into the Surrey League 4up TT we held weeknight 4up training sessions in the weeks leading up the the event.

    There are currently road works on the Westerham/Eynsford TT route so that route is out, but if we can agree on another suitable route is anyone up for this? Would be good for unfamiliar groups of riders to test their skills with others to get used to riding so close at speed.

    Cheers
    Bill

      Rather than club runs for those involved, hopefully we will see a big turnout at Cyclopark this Sunday morning – great chance for everyone to build some experience safely (and create teams).

      The road sessions were great in the past, but generally earlier in the summer – it’s pretty dark by 8pm now. Horrible!

    Not going to be fit enough to ride but more than willing to lend a hand helping.

    Hi Johnny,
    I’m keen to give this a go again. Hopefully the rest of Team Saturday will fancy it too.

    It’s back for 2017 – the end of season time trial event to beat all time trial events!
    It’s now confirmed that GS Avanti will be staging the final inter-club team time trial event on the full GP circuit at Brands Hatch. It will start and finish in front of the Grandstand (after 4 laps), and we will have use of the Pit Lane Garages and the Media Centre afterwards, exactly as before.

    This 4up event is being run by Revolve24 and will be open to 4up teams outside of the inter-club competition(GS Avanti, Sydenham Wheelers or Sevenoaks Tri) however the inter-club competition will still run as before (excluding these other teams). To make things more exciting I am aware that there should be Sussex Sport Photography taking and sharing your photos (there is a rumour of automatic posting to social media should you be interested) and also live chip timings and live results available throughout the event.

    Last year, the teams finishing time was timed against the third rider (of four) across the line after 4 laps. This will need to be confirmed for this year.

    WHO CAN TAKE PART?
    As with last years events, ANY GS Avanti rider can take part. Last year there were several that had never even ridden a time trial, let alone a 4 up time trial. So I encourage you to put you name down. A normal road bike will be perfectly fine.
    NOTE: The big difference this year is that the three clubs will be limited to 20 teams between ourselves and the interest is expected to be higher.
    Entry Fee: LIKELY TO BE COVERED BY THE CLUB

    HOW DO I TAKE PART IN THIS AMAZING EVENT?
    1. Register your interest below before 20th August.
    2. Also visit the event page and mark yourself as attending (as we all do with club events, of course – but here is the link in case you need a quick reminder https://www.gsavanti.co.uk/events/2017/09/end-season-4up-time-trial-brands-hatch/ )
    3. 4 up teams will then be organised around riders of similar ability and submitted before the end of the month and published on the forum.

    Photos from last years event can be seen here.
