CTT update

edited March 27 in Time Trial
Following on from other posts here is a postive email received yesterday from CTT which will put a smile on the face of those who like the race of truth...

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As most will be aware and as stated in the CTT release on 22 February 2021, the publication of the government “Roadmap” set out the way forward and gave details of the gradual relaxation of the Covid-19 restrictions in England. The Scottish and Welsh governments have set out their own timetables for Scotland and Wales respectively and the position continues to vary as between England, Scotland and Wales.

England

No changes have been announced by the government to the “Roadmap” and accordingly, formally organised outdoor sports will be allowed to resume in England from 29 March 2021. Cycling Time Trials is pleased to confirm that the current suspension of events will end and that in England CTT events (both type A and type B events) will be able to resume from and including 29 March 2021.

When holding an event, whether that be a type A or type B event, it is essential that the requirements as set out in the CTT COVID-19 risk assessment are followed. If any club or organiser is in any doubt as to whether or not an event can proceed, please contact the National Secretary (Legal & Corporate) nick.sharpe@cyclingtimetrials.org.uk

The CTT Covid-19 risk assessment has been updated to reflect the changes made in the Covid-19 restrictions since 2020. The amended risk assessment is available on the CTT website:

https://cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/documents/index/covid-19

A significant change from last year is that there are now no restrictions for those who compete on a tandem nor are there any restrictions to team trials, to include 2-up events.

Travel

The “Stay at Home” rule will end on 29 March. Please be aware that the government advice is that people are urged to stay local. The shift is from the current legal standpoint of “stay at home” unless you have a legal reason to travel, to [as from 29 March] one of guidance to stay local. Subject to CTT’s rules and regulations, there is no restriction on who can compete in a CTT event. As is stated in the risk assessment however, the onus is on the rider on whether or not to travel to a specific event. It is not the responsibility of the organiser or promoting club to police this.

Please remember:

The threat of Covid-19 and the risk of infection does still remain. If you are not well or showing signs of Covid-19 then please do not attend at any CTT event.
