Comment from Premier Online - 08.10.2013
“The email sent to you each Classic ChampionChip owner the day before the event states: "First time user? Don't forget to attach your Classic ChampionChip the correct way to ensure you get your time! Instructions and pictures can be found here: http://www.premiertiming.com/how_to " The same pictures with English/Arabic text was displayed at the registration office where you collected your chip and we're sure any of the 500+ other riders would have been happy to help, if asked...”

6.3 Good event Geoff Flisher · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I was really concerned with regard to safety as the first group came to the finish. There was a large group, going at significant speeds not heeding that this was not a race, shouting at people that they were going left, and then going either side - Accident waiting to happen”

8.5 A well organised and smoothly run event Rod Gravette · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
6.1 OK Event Andrew Barstow · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A fun event which i enjoyed. However, lap information was weak and most concerning despite the registration details suggesting refreshments would be provided this was only true if you bought cash (which I would have done it it was clear you needed to buy them). Also, there was a reasonable amount of debris on the track suggested it had not been brushed in preparation.”

8.9 Good race. But chaotic finnish for the lead pack Joar Larsen · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes

“Preferably there should have been a separation zone for those finishing and those that have more laps to go. -Some are more competitive than others... Also the finish gate was to narrow.”

8.1 Good Yannick Jullienne · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
7.6 Good support at the start line. Karen Pandya · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It is 8pm the evening of the event and I have not received an email about my race timing yet. I really want to know what my time was!”

9.6 Great event. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Nasser Sheikh · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Riding past the cricketers was a bit tense for fear of a cricket ball banging into my wheels. Otherwise, I had a great time.”

5.6 Excellent ride, some indiscipline with a few · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“An excellent well-organised event. Big crowd and mostly everyone behaving well, but not enough tolerance from some experienced riders to those less familiar with cycling.”

7.4 Good fun Scott Hyde · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great event although the timings seem to be inaccurate. I started and finished with a friend and our times are 40+ seconds apart and the overall timings although impressive seem to be far above my ability level. Unless I have misunderstood, timings were taken at only one location ? small gripe as not a professional but appreciate some understanding or explanation to the timings. thanks scott”

“Good ride, always fun. Will keep on doing it...! Tri-bars not allowed? No issues if it is allowed or not, but had a guy in our front bunch in the middle of the bunch tucked in on aero position, 40 - 50 k's an hour, clearly causing danger (swerving left & right)! Be sensible guys, if you want to use these, do not ride in the bunch!! Also had some slower guys keep on the left AND right, causing some scary moments for the speed freaks...;). Keep to one side for everyone's safety!”
