FAQ

Question Answer
Why? Quite a number of reasons - Virtual racing is a great opportunity to maintain connection and community during COVID isolation. It is also a good way to maintain some bike fitness and give people a mental break. But mainly because it is fun.
Why do we need to pre-enter? We are aiming to make this virtual racing as close to real racing as possible. Separate entry categories are part of this. We will email you a link to your specific race prior to the event. Pre-entry lets us get you into the correct age-category & correct race.
Can I enter on-the-day or at the last minute? You are required to be entered by the close of entries so that we can provide you with the entry link.
Does it cost anything for the RGT software? RGT offer a basic and a premium versions. Both are currently free. See https://www.rgtcycling.com/
Will there be series points? No, this is a fun way to try online racing with other Junior athletes.
Is RGT the same as Zwift? It's similar, but there are some differences. Please set RGT up and get familiar with it prior to your event
Can I jump straight in 5min before I race? That's a bit risky, so perhaps not a great idea. Get set up and ride a few test runs to make sure you are ready to go prior to your event
Integrity of results It's important that you set RGT up with your correct body weight.
How Many Laps will I be racing We will confirm this closer to the event date.
