Cool, thanks! It was a fab day - both marshalling and riding! Didn't realise how sore my legs were until I went for a run this evening...

Results for the Braes are up on the BC website so I imagine CutC results will be on tomorrow.

MyLaps have the results for all races except the women and men's E/1/2/3 - there was a small glitch in the remote timing up at the castle but that should be corrected very soon, so they'll be up there at some point as well.

Anyone know where the results can be found? Chris and I need to compare notes on who came furthest from last in our respective races...!

I've searched the BC website and while CUTC is listed under their results section it doesn't seem to actually have the results on it...

Lesley, I will try to get marshal packs for Crit Under The Castle out tonight but all the posts are still not finalised. So it may have to wait til Saturday evening.

Everyone who has offered *will* be given something to do - we need everyone's help to pull this off.

In this respect, we STILL need to fill a few roles. These are all related to marshalling the finish up to the castle. This is only in use for the women's race and the men's E/1/2/3 race, and so we only need people here from around 7 - 9 pm. If you can help out, please let me know.

Any offers of help during the day will also be well received!

Regards

Dave

Fraser - Chris is racing at 9 so we'll probably drive over from Dunblane together if you want a lift? We can put Chris's bike in the car and yours and mine on top, and then Chris can drive home when he's completely grubbed from the race and we can cycle home later! :)

Hi Nigel, What have you been putting in your tea :woohoo:
Riders will be coming up from The Kippen roundabout towards Thornhill, its hard to say at what time they will get there, I'd estimate around 10:00 on the first race and maybe 13:25 on the second race, so many variables like wind direction, traffic, the will to race etc. its tough to estimate, look at the pro races the organisers get the timings wrong all the time, we have all seen the level crossing etc :)

Been away from the club for a good 7 years now, signed back up yesterday. Could give a dig out on Saturday, bit new to it though so if someone was to keep me right i could marshal perhaps? Obviously not got any SBC attire if was required.

Sally - thanks for the offer of help - I've PMed you.

All - we still need a few more helpers for Sunday, in addition to the couple of jobs Derek has to fill for Saturday.

We're going to have great weather both days, and it's going to be an amazing advert for the Scottish road racing scene *and* for how great SBC is - but we need a few more people to help make it all run smoothly!

Cheers

We still need another 10 or 15 volunteers. This is a huge day for the club - please do consider giving up your time to join many others in helping to make this a great day.

Post up or email me if you can help (I'm emailing the members again shortly).

Cheers

Dave

Thanks to everyone for their offers of help so far - both on here and via email.

We are still way short of people to help out at Crit Under The Castle on Sunday. If you can spare some time, please post up here or reply to my email that went out to the membership.

Thanks in advance

Dave

I can help out on Sunday. As Alistair will be there all day I can't do too long a stint as I need to come home and walk the dogs. I could do a split shift if necessary!
Derek, I'm struggling on the Saturday with other things happening but let me know if you want me to hand in some baking.

Hi Norrie
Available all day Saturday - as early as you require help- barriers or whatever - then for marshalling. [ As I live on the circuit Park Av/ Glebe mini roundabout location would be ideal for my elderly bladder] . My wife would also be available

Hi Derek,

You've had an email from me re CutC. Sign-on is probably about all I can offer for the Braes as will need to be home by midday and will obviously have to cycle out. I'm assuming HQ is Callander?

Saturday June 13th 2015
This year’s installment of the Battle of the Braes race will see 2 road races on the day, Male Senior and Junior Cat 3/4 and Women of all categories, Starting at 9am this will surely be a tough test on what seems to be a short course, the route only being 38 miles is designed to have an even start on rolling terrain but with a single accent of the Mini Braes Climb from the Thornhill side and a full on attacking accent of the Braes of Greenock climb to the finish line will bring out the tough Rouleur’s and the climbers to sort out who's best.

New for Stirling Bike Club this year is a step up to a National B level race this was added to the calendar to bolster the East of Scotland and Scottish Cycling calendar of events for our top Scottish Amateurs. Using the same course but increasing the miles and accents of the Braes to 72 miles this will take in 3 full laps of the smaller circuit finishing on the 4th accent of the Braes of Greenock climb. This is going to be a tough day possibly with breaks trying to establish early in the race, with 4000 feet of total climbing for the day it’s likely to be a race for the opportunist or the pure climber.

Along with the Crit under the Castle on Sunday the 14th this will be a huge weekend of events for Stirling Bike Club, It would be fantastic to get as many club members to line the course of the smaller circuit and cheers these races on that is though if you have more time then come and help us out we badly need more folks help us run these events!.

For the Braes race I need as many Marshall's as possible, I'll even give you a packed lunch to keep you going :woohoo: , Crit under the Castle will be similar and need more Marshals too in the region of 100!

Both races need the following helpers

Sign on staff

Catering to help and to make any kindly donated cakes sandwiches etc.

Second persons in the Lead cars and wheel changers for the neutral service cars (just for the Braes road race)

First aid qualified helpers

A good photographer

And someone to help with Tweeting / social media

PM me if you can help, this is going to be a huge weekend for SBC.
