Thread: Early notice: ECCA Festival 2011

  1. #1

    Default Early notice: ECCA Festival 2011

    Many thanks to Stan Broom, Paul Smith and friends, who've come up with the following to take the ECCA Festival forwards following Alan Osborne's retirement after so many years of excellent promotion.

    See: http://questronics.org.uk/EasternCou...011.html?diary and scroll down.

    New format means that riders score points for participation so the overall club prizes doesn't necessarily go to the club with the fastest scratch riders though there remain the individual awards.
    Edited to remove prize sentence.

    The festival is open to all members of clubs which are affiliated to ECCA: http://www.easterncounties.org.uk/

    Briefly:
    Saturday early morning: solo 10 on E2/10
    Saturday late morning: solo and 2-up 10 on E33/10 Stetchworth sporting course
    HQ for both time trials is Westley Waterless.

    Sunday morning: 55km 4-lap 3rd/4th category road race at Radwinter
    Sunday morning: 84km 6-lap ECCA championship road race at Radwinter
    Sunday morning: 100km and 200km Randonee
    HQ for road races and randonee is Radwinter village hall.

    Monday morning: solo and 2-up 14 miles on E92/14 Pleshey-Ford End-High Easter-Pleshey sporting course
    Monday morning: map-reading contest
    Monday late morning: 7km circuit solo time trial on E92/5 (High Easter)
    Monday afternoon: 10 mile solo and tandem time trial on E91/10
    HQ for Monday's events is High Easter village hall

    For more info, please see relevant BC, CTT and Audax handbooks, or email: eccafestival@rocketmail.com

    Sue, are you sure the distances are correct for the road races?
    I thought the Wimbish course was 11.5 miles a lap approx which would add up to 74/112km for the road races.

    Shame the RR course has changed its been in the Roadings for as long as I can remember..... The race is shorter as well.... Not that I mind but I guess some of the E/1 riders will be a bit disappointed.

    Could have moved it to a course with a hill, don't you think?

    Will, If you want a race with a hill ( 5 times + up the farm track ) & longer, you know where to send Dengie entries .Details on BC website.

    Oh Alan you comedian. Are you making up for the loss of Baddow by sticking that in then?

    You'd ask them to flatten the Tour if you were riding! Please Mr Prudhomme, just stick to the Pas de Calais, don't send me to those big rocky snow covered things! Clearly, "horse for courses" doesn't mean anything to you!

    On behalf of the ECCA Committee I have been request to inform you concerning the prize money mentioned above, there are no current plans to give monetary awards for the ECCA Festival Weekend.

    Am i right in thinking that they are intending to use the Radwinter course which has been used for the regional RR over the last two years? Because 6 laps of that certainly isnt 84km nor 84 miles, try more like 94 miles and the rest!! May be this time the course is used the lap board man/woman gets it right, as in every race i've ridden on that circuit there has been an extra lap thrown in
