Thanks for your interest in Keirin 2012! We hope you enjoy the event supported by Tokyo Fixed.
The format of the day will be a points based system, with a minumum number of rides guaranteed for each rider, there will be a full and final classification for all riders and also each rider will take part in a final, be that a major final (1st – 8th) or minor finals (9th-16th, 17th -24th etc).
If you are an inexperienced track rider you should enter the NOVICE category and you must have Herne Hill Accreditation or similar to take part.
Experienced male track racers currently without license must enter the Men’s event, not the Novice event and purchase a day license.
Female Novices, please attend the safety briefing and trial races at noon prompt, BUT enter the female category in which you will be racing.
Race distance will be four full laps of the 450m Herne Hill track with the Derny pulling off with approximately 500-550m to go.
Lots will be drawn prior to each race to determine start position, you may bring your own pusher.
Riders may pass each other and switch position from the start of the race but you may not overlap the rear wheel of the Derny at anytime, until pacer pulls off.
