  • It only has to happen once for someone to get a life altering/ending spinal injury.

    “ Glasgow could well end up hosting WMTC one year, a MCR based rider goes and wins scratch race gold there but would be unable to enter the following weeks track league as no Glasgow specific accreditation. Is that right?”

    Yes.

    There are riders who attended Scottish Cycling sessions, rode the commonwealth games here and then had to do an accred 4 before they could do any of our sessions.

    I don’t think Chris Hoy even has accreditation, he’s ridden during private functions and events but never one of our sessions.

    Fully understood, and it'd be awful for that to happen.

    "It" could also be touch of wheels in the group, puncture, broken cleat, and many other circumstances. What's your mitigation for all of those circumstances to ensure "it" could never happen?

  • You can say that of anything though. Walking down the street is a risky activity. You do what you can but you’re never going to remove risk entirely.

  • Fully understood, and it'd be awful for that to happen.

    It did happen, at Newport.
