LEVEL 1 - Championships Qualification Criteria
Level 1 classes at affiliated TREC GB competitions, since 3 August 2015, run by TREC GB member clubs will be qualifying classes, unless the organiser has opted out of qualifier status (in which case it will be clearly stated in the schedule). Classes at levels with an A or B suffix will not be qualifying classes.
The qualification criteria for the Level 1 TREC GB Championships 2016 of Great Britain are as follows:
For classes with up to 10 individuals/pairs, competitors placed 1st to 4th will qualify. For classes with 11 or more individuals/pairs, competitors placed 1st to 6th will qualify.
For 2016, Qualification will roll down below the places quoted above. There will be no lower limit to this rule
In order to be eligible to ride at the Level 1 Championships riders must be Red tier or Blue tier members of TREC GB before the closing date for entries for the Level 1 Championships. In the case of a pair, both riders must be TREC GB members before the closing date for entries.
