What is scrutineering


Before the riders briefing you must have your bike checked by one of the scrutineers.  This is done to ensure you are riding a safe and well maintained bike and have the appropriate protective gear.

The following items are checked:

  • Throttle return
  • Brake and clutch free-play and effectiveness
  • Wheel and frame bearings
  • Bar ends
  • Foot peg spring and return
  • Spokes
  • Tyres
  • Sprockets and chain tension
  • Helmut 
  • Body armour for junior riders
