This update relates to CTT events in England only. It does not relate to events in Wales or Scotland.
Further to the update issued on and dated 08 June 2020, this update is being sent to all CTT districts, CTT affiliated clubs and to organisers of CTT events.
The following documents are now available to download via the link on the CTT website.
1. COVID-19 Risk Assessment
2. Guidance - Putting on a Cycling Time Trials Event during COVID-19
3. Instruction – how to use nitrile gloves
4. Public Health England - Best Practice: How to hand wash
The COVID-19 risk assessment will need to be considered and adhered to for all CTT events, (in addition to the risk assessment for the course), whether that be a Type A (open) event or Type B (club) event. The guidance is to assist clubs and organisers promote their events and it is not a substitute for the COVID-19 risk assessment.
Currently all CTT Type B ‘club’ events are suspended up to and including 05 July 2020 and all Type A events are suspended up to and including 17 July 2020.
The safety of competitors and all those involved with the event must be paramount. It has to be made clear that competition can be resumed only if the government guidelines are relaxed sufficiently so as to allow for time trials to take place, and it is considered those guidelines can be fully adhered to regarding social distancing.
Whereas it is still not considered possible nor indeed appropriate to recommence CTT events as yet, it is anticipated that on or around 04 July the current restrictions on social distancing may be relaxed further. If this proves to be the case, Type B ‘club events can be held from 06 July 2020 and Type A events from 18 July 2020.
As has been explained previously, it is emphasised that there is no pressure at all on clubs or organisers to hold their events. Whether to proceed with an event is entirely at the discretion of the relevant CTT district, the individual club and the individual promotor of the event.
CTT will review the position following the further government guidance which is expected on or around 04 July 2020.
Police notification forms – open and club events
If this has not been done already, clubs and organisers are reminded that they should send the PNF to the relevant police authority to ensure the necessary legal requirements will have been complied with.
As stated in the risk assessment, disposable numbers can be an option for your events. CTT are in contact with Pymwenn Printing who can provide Tyvek numbers which are waterproof and tearproof.
The numbers can be ordered via Stewart Smith (National Secretary (Competitions & Development)) firstname.lastname@example.org and will be delivered direct to you from the supplier.
All the numbers will be 20 x 20 cm with a black number on a yellow wash background (No additional graphics/text) and for a set of 1-100 would cost £13.50 (inc VAT but plus carriage).
