Selections will be made based on the following criteria that shall constitute the ‘performance' for the purpose of selection:
Attacking riding - ability to make repeated efforts
Bike handling ability - cornering skills etc
Finish position
Tactical awareness
Being a selfless team player
Attendance at additional sessions ie South RSR’s or any team training days, will also be a requirement,
The selectors will consider performances in each individual event in its own right, taking into account the above key selection points, and the need to create a balanced team to contest all the events. An accumulative or average scoring / points system from all events shall NOT be used for selection. Youths riding events using dispensations will also have the results of those events considered.
Please note that after the first selection event for each discipline a long list will be drawn up
and some financial contribution from those selected will be required.
Riders wishing their results to be considered should contact Mrs Susan W Knight via email by 1st March 2014, indicating which disciplines they wish to be considered for:
