Crystal Palace races CANCELLED Tuesday 14 June Tuesday

The racing at Crystal Palace tonight is CANCELLED due to rain (according to the Crystal Palace Crits website).

There will therefore be no Bigfoot Youth tonight. A chance to catch up on some homework instead...!

A reminder that there is no Bigfoot Youth at Bromley College on Tuesday evening (14th June) as it's one of the dates set aside for a "racing raid" outing to the Crystal Palace crits.

In case you missed it before, in short we're trying to make it easier for our riders to have a go at the next level of racing. So we're going as a team to a number of local circuit race events, where you'll be supported by your Bigfoot coaches and volunteers.
If you really don’t fancy racing, then please do come and cheer your team mates on.
The Youth race starts at 6.45pm so you should arrive at Crystal Palace by 6.15 to sign on and warm up. Entry is £3 for youth riders.

You can find out more, including a course map, on the Crystal Palace Crits website.

All the information you need about racing at this level, including more details about the events are in Bigfoot's Youth Racing Guide.

What if it rains?

If the course is wet the racing at Crystal Palace will be cancelled for safety reasons. The current met office forecast for Tuesday evening is not too encouraging, and so far four of this season's seven races have been been cancelled due to rain!

Keep an eye on this page, and if we hear that the racing has been cancelled we'll let you know.
