how much interest is there in races for classic bikes ?????
If a lot are interested, then why not approach the TLI organization for a catagory to be introduced in there races in 2010
sure if enough interest there could be some races here in north wales
I discussed this with the TLI Chairman a short while ago in regard to 'Old Skool' TT's and he was quite receptive. Trouble is the events would preferably need to be in the TLI handbook in order to reach the notice of all members and the deadline for this is Nov 22 at the AGM. The events could still be organised at reasonably short notice (a lot less notice than BC or CTT!) but would have to be advertised in some way.
And what would be the definition of 'Classic Bike'? My '58 Pennine and '96 Favori both fit the bill (and look similar!) even though they're nearly 40 years apart. I suppose anything built of steel with round 'normal' tubes and shallow rim wheels could comply. Extra points for running an Osgear and Lam brakes!
In my state of climbing ability I think South Lincolnshire Fens would be preferable to North Wales! I cut my road racing teeth on some of those climbs and still have the nightmares!!
However, it's a very good idea and Mr Chairman could be contacted again regarding what you say - would you like to do this seeing as it's your idea
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
