That would be the intention a few courses that could be used in rotation. an initial safety assessment that would be done once and used many times. I wouldnt want it mixed in with the open races. It would also only require a CC licence as it would be a akin to a club league.
I think a masters championship based on age is certainly do-able. The UCI dont recognise Vet as a category therefore the Vets champs has no standing in the UCI hence there is no points on offer for it.
I dont think there isnt enough riders to do the events but it would require a bit of management and you would need people to skip races to marshall.
But as I said if anybody feels we could move this forward I am happy to accommodate and become involved.
It should be attractive to the promoting clubs as there would be little extra organization or costs, but more income (these are usually on a circuit, so it would be the same circuit but with fewer laps as in most normal events - no extra marshals etc - just a couple of lead cars).
There probably aren't enough riders for all the recognised Masters categories and it wouldn't be feasible to run them anyway. So, in practice, it might look like the normal Vets Championships with, for the sake of argument:
- Vets race over 4 laps (for the sake of argument) for Vets Championships (catering for all comers over 35 who want to have a go - this is a very high standard)
- 50-59 race over 3 laps with Championship awarded to the first 50-54 and 55-59 age group
- Over 60s, over 2 laps...
Of course it could be a problem for CI as they would be running no-recognized UCI category (Vets) and recognised-UCI categories (Masters) in the same event.
