Last week featured the final rounds of both the Vets and the Handicap series with the majority having excellent rider attendance. It was with regret though that a number of Handicap events had to be cancelled due to either roadworks or other incidents arising on or close to race day. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, these cancelled events could not be rescheduled for a later date.
As regards the Precise Performance 4th cat Series and stolen goat Women’s Series, these will end this Friday (2nd August). Both of these series were meant to end last week but due to a postponement of the 10th round, thanks to the film studio on the Dunsfold Park grounds, Dunsfold Park operators gave us a replacement date (2nd August).
So with the above in mind, this is a notice to any 4th cat or female rider – your final events are this Friday. Please pass this message on and we, Glyn and I, will hopefully see you at the usual place and time this Friday.
The last round of the Surrey League Handicap series was last Thursday, but on 15th September Norwood Paragon will be hosting the Handicap Championship. Entry is open all categories so if you plan to ride, you best get your entry in. Details are listed below.

Novice Race Preparation Training Sessions
Please remember that if you are new to the Surrey League, and a 4th cat male/female rider, you will need to complete 2 Novice Race Preparation Training Sessions before being allowed to race with us. Once passed, you’ll be given an accreditation card which you must bring with you to your events as well as your Surrey League and BC race licenses.
They are run by qualified British Cycling coaches, with the help of a number of experienced riders, on various traffic-free circuits in the Surrey area. More details are available on our website and you can enter the sessions via RiderHQ.
