6. A number of events will be reserved for particular categories i.e. road bike, 2-up, etc. Only riders which fulfil the particular entry criteria (i.e. road bikes) will be eligible for prizes. Non-eligible rides will still be timed but will not be considered for prize money.

8. Any HWCC member who enters an evening time trial event is expected to assist as a marshal or start pusher at two other events over the course of the season. This is irrespective of the number of events entered i.e. you are expected to marshal two events whether you ride one event or ten.
