Time:             Session to run for approximately 45 minutes        

Games:               To be selected by the trainer and selectors. Riders should keep going until asked to stop by the referee.

Scoring:               Selectors are looking for outstanding riding. Riders going through the motions will not impress, they must prove they can ride at pace, correct quickly, take a handover and give a handover. 

Debrief:              After session 1, selectors and trainers debrief to collate written findings, focus opinions and sort teams for session 2.

 

Session 2            to see riders in correct positions, speed, teamwork, handovers and agility

Time:                    After a short break following session 1.  

Games:                 To be selected by the trainers and selectors. Competitively run in lanes of 4 or 5. Trainers will give the teams orders.

Scoring:               Selectors will use a scoring system, team selection will also be based on position in team, all round performance and team work. 

Debrief:              After session 2, Selectors and Trainers go through final combinations. Each age group will have session score sheets for each rider from each selector. Together with the information from the selection shows the England riders will be chosen. 

 

The teams will be announced by close of play Monday 21st May.
