In readiness for the season I’ve entered a handful of British Cycling races here in the UK from the few that are near me and suitable. The entry always states that you are subject to being accepted by the race organiser.
I have been “not accepted” for my first one.
This is a real shame as it’s very close to my home and a format that would favour me. And it begs the question of how you could get to build experience and results if there are only a few opportunities to begin with and you might not even get the chance to use them.
Is there usually a set of criteria that decide who gets in and who gets a “no”? Is it based on club membership for instance? I am not a member of any clubs as I would never get a chance to ride with them so that’s out. Do they look at your Strava to see if you have any speed?
What’s the story?
