Change of Date for State Time Trial Championship
Please note that the date of the last of the VVCC Open Time Trial Series events at Paraparap, near Geelong, which is also the State Time Trial Championships, has been moved from the 17th August to the 31st of August, due to a clash with the Victorian Masters Road and Time Trial Championships.
VVCC Open Time Trial Series 2014
This winter the VVCC is holding a new time trial series, to be held 15th June, 13th July, and 31st August (note change of date). The series will consist of 3 events at 3 different locations, with the last event at Paraparap, near Geelong, incorporating the VVCC State Time Trial Championships.
The events are to be held at Learmonth, Woodstock on Loddon, and Paraparap, over 27km, 35km and 25km respectively. There will be prizes for placings on the day, plus an age adjusted Aggregate held over the three events for each division, as well as State Time Trial Championship awards presented at the final event.
Full details can be found on the VVCC Open Time Trial Series page.
Changes to VVCC Racing Rules
At the recent AVCC AGM, some additions were made to the AVCC racing rules, with the inclusion in Rule 6 (f) of clauses governing the use of disc brakes, mobile phones, and cameras attached to helmets.
Please familiarise yourself with these new rules under Rule 6 (f), covering equipment and clothing, on the Rules Page.
Club Referees Please Note
A recent audit of club Race Day Checklists has highlighted the fact that many clubs are not using the latest version of the Race Day Checklist form. Please check that you have and are using the latest version of the form, and are sending them to the State Secretary at the end of each month.
Heat Stroke and Insurance
Members are advised that your insurance does not cover Heat Stroke or similar conditions when racing or training in hot weather.
Important Changes to Membership for 2014
This year there have been some important changes to VVCC membership. The Fixtures Booklet sent out in previous years will no longer be posted out with your licence, and your licence will be emailed to you with your receipt when you pay your online membership.
Please print out the receipt when you receive it, and keep it in a safe place. It is also a good idea to keep the email so that if you need to reprint the licence for any reason you still have it.
The VVCC Racing Rules and 2014 Events Calendar formerly found in the Fixtures Booklet can still be found on this site and some club sites.
Contacting the State Handicapper at Opens
Under no circumstances are riders to contact the State Handicapper at Opens to discuss their marks. Please go through your Club Handicapper if you have any issues with your mark at an Open.
Tail Lights Required
Riders are reminded that tail lights must be fitted to bikes at all VVCC and club events. They are to be attached securely to the bike, set to not flash (some riders are epileptic) and to be visible from at least 100 metres.
