Bike Competitors

Please note that we have received more than 650 entries. If you enter now (by purchasing an entry) your entry will be placed on a wait list. As places become available due to withdrawals, applicants on the wait list will be allocated the space. The list is kept  in order of receipt of applications and places will be allocated accordingly. In the past there have always been enough withdrawals for everyone to get a place but anyone who misses out on a place will get a full refund.
