CTT Update

Sounds like it offers some hope of racing in the not too distant future...


Dear rider

We’re receiving an increasing number of enquiries about when it will be possible to start events once more.

Many will have seen that British Cycling issued a release on Wednesday this week in which it was said that for international and national level races, including national series and championships, the suspension of events was extended until 01 September 2020, and that for regional racing the suspension of events was extended until 01 August 2020. The Board of CTT consider that by its very nature time trialling is different to road racing and consequently for time trials it will be easier to accommodate the government’s guidelines on the measures that need to be put in place to help control the spread of COVID-19 and in particular the requirement for social distancing.

We’re hoping that it will be possible for events to take place, perhaps initially in some limited form, in the not too distant future. We understand that the government is looking at ways outdoor sport and social activity can resume once more, although currently we don’t know when that will be. Presently all CTT events are suspended up to and including 30 June. There is to be further government guidance announced on Monday next week, 01 June, and it is anticipated that a further CTT release will be issued shortly after. Plans are being put in place so once we’re able to, we can start events once more and guidance will be given to all clubs and CTT districts in good time to allow this to happen.

Thank you

  • Further update fro CTT.


    Dear rider

    This update relates to CTT events in England only. It does not relate to events in Wales or Scotland.

    At the beginning of June, the Government relaxed the restrictions on social distancing. Whereas it is still not considered possible nor indeed appropriate to recommence CTT events as yet, it is anticipated that on or around 04 July the current restrictions may be relaxed further. In anticipation of that being the case, it is hoped that it may be possible to resume CTT events in July 2020.

    Currently all CTT events are suspended up to and including 30 June 2020. To allow time to properly consider the expected Government guidance, Type B ‘club’ events are further suspended up to and including 05 July 2020 and all Type A events are further suspended up to and including 17 July 2020.

    The safety of competitors and all those involved with the event must be paramount. It has to be made clear that competition can be resumed only if the Government guidelines are relaxed sufficiently so as to allow for time trials to take place, and it is considered those guidelines can be fully adhered to regarding social distancing. If this proves to be the case, Type B ‘club’ events can be held from 06 July 2020 and Type A events from 18 July 2020.

    In taking this decision it is emphasised that there is no pressure at all on clubs or organisers to hold their events. Whether to proceed with an event is entirely at the discretion of the relevant CTT district, the individual club and the individual promotor of the event.

    A full coronavirus risk assessment and guidance as to what steps to put in place to mitigate potential risk has been prepared and will be circulated to all CTT districts, CTT affiliated clubs and event organisers shortly.

    Police notification forms – open and club events

    Although this may have been done already, clubs and organisers are reminded that they should send the PNF to the relevant police authority to ensure the necessary legal requirements will have been complied with.

    CTT will review the position following the further government guidance which is expected on 04 July 2020.

    Thank you
