Getting Started

A quick guide to your first cyclocross race

What equipment do I need?

  • Bike – preferably with knobbly tyres
  • Helmet – this is compulsory
  • Footwear
  • Safety Pins – for attaching race numbers

What time shall I arrive?

Generally an hour before your race.

Do I need a licence?

No. But if you do more than a single race it’s probably cheaper to get one.

How do I enter an event?

The preferred method is online via the TLI website but you can also enter on the day.

What are the Rules?

  • If you are a member of the TLI you must show your valid licence when signing on, if not you have to pay the day membership fee
  • Juniors must be signed on by a parent or guardian
  • You must sign-on before practicing the course
