    re: 28 spokes, no major reason, levels the playing field to an extent however this is exactly the reason i'm asking you lot for help, i'll switch it for a 16 spoke min?

    re: arro stuff, i don't want people turning up on fixed tt rigs and dominating off the front in all aero gear etc. aero and bars forks are fine, trying to steer people away from tt helmets, deep profile wheels/discs etc.

    also, a few of these were pulled from the bc regs however there descriptions are a biut 'longhand' for this event.

    Hi all, been asked to setup a race with eon cycle live in nottingham and they have asked me for race rules regarding the race itself and bike spec. Is there anywhere on here that already has a list of (as we all love lists) rules that i can pick and choose from? I have a meeting today at 3:30 to sort it through and i wouldn't mind having a list of rules. i was looking for the rules from either the hunt or red hook etc and i seem to be hitting at a loss?
