WTNC: All about Cat 4a and Cat4b and not Cat 5

So you may have heard, we have a really full men’s Cat 4 field this year. If you race in the WTNC Cat 4 or Cat 5 fields, please read on. If not, you can go back to your usual business.

For safety reasons, we need to put a cap on field sizes at the WTNC. The Cat 4 field, especially at Glenlyon, is hitting against that limit. So we’re taking action.

Starting next week, we will refer to the Cat 4 and Cat 5 fields as “4a” and “4b”. As far as we are concerned, this does not designate a better or worse field, just two separate groups of Cat 4 men racing each night. Any rider with a Men 4 license may enter either group. In concert with Cycling BC, we can tell you that both groups will receive upgrade points as usual, and points in either group will count for upgrades towards Cat 3.

But to enforce the field limit, we need to take some steps.

As of next week, we will have the following limits on pre-registration and day-of registration in 4a:

So, here’s the now actually correct 2019 schedule for the beloved World Tuesday Night Championships, which has the right dates for SuperWeek, and thus the right dates of no racing:

WTNC 2019 schedule (corrected)

Some quick notes:

  • First race is April 30, and then most Tuesdays after that
  • No race during SuperWeek, no race after SuperWeek (it’s THAT super).
  • Last Tuesday Nighter will be a special event, as usual it will not count for points for the prestigious WTNC omnium.
  • Note the UBC schedule, with four races on select dates.
  • Complete details shortly on the WTNC page, but expect only minor changes from last year.

And while we have you here, the Good Friday Race will complete our Spring Classics Series on, uh, Good Friday. But we also have a Stage Race in May, and so the fun never stops!
