About

Proudly Hosted by the South Perth Rouleurs

A new format for an old Race. The history of Beverley and cycling dates back to 1897, then referred to as “The Beverley”, the original races ran through until 1999. This year, we have changed the format to an exciting team time trial.

The Beverley TT will send riders Eastwards out of the town centre along Vincent Street and turning onto Mawson Road and over the 50km out-and-back course over undulating, quiet rural roads. There is over 450m of climbing elevation that is set to challenge all teams.

A great warm-up for the Tour of Margaret River to train your team skills.

Teams can consist of either 4, 5 or 6 riders with the team time taken across the finish line of the 4th rider. Teams will be released on regular intervals of between 1 and 2 minutes depending on the number of entries.

Categories:

  • Womens [A, B, C]
  • Mens [A, B, C]
  • Mixed [A, B, C] - select "open" on the entry form

Teams will be handicapped post-race.

Teams MUST wear matching kit - however, this does not need to be registered kit for this event as we have a one off exemption from Westcycle.

No time trial bikes or aero equipment including disc wheels will be allowed.

Team numbers are limited

Ride safe, be courteous, obey road rules, listen to race officials and SPR hopes you enjoy the day

Race Format - 4 or 5 or 6 Rider Team Time Trial - Handicap

Grades: A, B, C - men, women and mixed (open) grades.

Open mixed teams must have at least one male and one female rider in the 4 riders to stop the clock. Example: a team of 4 female and 2 male riders; would stop the clock on the 5th rider if the first 4 riders were female or on the 4th rider if a male rider was in the first 4 riders crossing the line.

Event notes: Handicap 50km Teams Time Trial with teams riding off slowest first, fastest last. Teams can overtake each other and no team can draft off another team.

Handicapping will occur post-race - meaning teams will be sorted into A, B, C after the race (the same as day 1 of the Tour of Margaret River). The final numbers of grades will be determined by the number of team entries received. Mixed teams must include at least either one man or women in the team.

Start Times Teams will be notified of their start time via publication of the start list.

Prizes: Prize money/prizes for winners of each A, B, C men, women and open mixed. Team time will be taken from 4th rider crossing the finish line.

My Laps Timing Chips: You must have a MyLaps timing chip to participate. Hire of a timing chip is $5 per event. If you have your own timing chip please ensure this is recorded in your EntryBoss profile - you will not be able to untick the transponder hire option until you have a transponder recorded on your profile.

Scratching: You can withdraw your entry with a self-serve, automated refund via EntryBoss if you are within the scratching cut-off time (9:59pm on Friday 9th October 2020). Please return to the EntryBoss Race Listing and use the 'Scratch' button.
