Appleby Orwell Women's Crit League Round 2 was created by Louise Keane
Round 2 of the Appleby Orwell Women's Crit League will take place this Tuesday the 17th of April in Corkagh Park - Map to Corkagh Park Track

Sign-on opens at 18.20 and closes at 18:50, with racing beginning at 19:00 sharp. This gives the organisers time to figure out a handicap (which is based on numbers turning up in each group), and allows them to start racing promptly. Take note of which group you're in for A+/A- or B+/B-. We will do our best to post groups before Tuesday night.

Be considerate of your fellow racers and the organisers, and get there on time! If you're not signed-on on time, you can't race.

The B races will be off first at 19:00 and the A+/A- race at 19:30. Race duration will be confirmed on the night but most likely will be 20mins plus 3 laps as we are still tight on light.

Some advice on racing in Corkagh Park thanks to Brian Mc from the Club League posts:
If this is your first race, try arrive early and get some warm-up laps in. Get used to the twists and curves of the course, and what line is best. When in the bunch, remember that there may be a rider on your inside or outside, or both - don't cut across their line.

If you find yourself dropped during the race and getting lapped, please move to the side and let those lapping you go by.

Please don't compromise on safety. Any dangerous riding may result in disqualification or suspension. Bear in mind that there will be plenty of beginners on the track on Tuesday night.

For the finish, safety is the priority. Don't put your head down or close your eyes in a sprint, and make sure to keep a straight line so you don't take down anyone else who might be overtaking you. Keep riding through the finish line until you are well clear of the line before stopping. If you think you placed, come back and make sure the race organiser has your name.

Parking
The car park closes early at the start of the year, so you're better off to park outside on the road parallel to the N7. The club is not responsible if you're locked in while you're racing. See Corkagh Park INFO for the official times.

Valuables
Please be careful with your belongings on race night. Some people leave bags at the gate during the race. It would be much safer to leave them on the inside of the course at the finish line, as that is where most people stand and can keep an eye on the bags.

Toilets
There are no toilet facilities available. You could try asking the caravan park nicely alternatively we have been able to use the toilets in the Green Isle Hotel in the past too.

See you all on Tuesday night!

A huge turnout for round 2 of the Appleby Orwell Womens Crit League - 29 in the B race and 18 in the A race!

It was a blustery evening which made the lower corners and the home straight interesting to say the least but everyone made it around safely and we definitely have some great racing talent coming through.

Well done to the Orwell youths - Annie, Caoimhe, Katie and Aine who raced tonight after a tough weekend at Ras na nOg.
