Yes, within minutes of it opening.....
You are currently on the reserve list for the 13th Brompton World Championship final. Unfortunately you have been unsuccessful in the initial draw however you will hear from us by Monday 5 March to confirm if any places have become available.
We had an incredible response to this year's race with riders from over 35 countries entering the ballot. Whilst we would love to include everyone in the race, we are limited in the number of people who can safely ride on the track. The reserve list is a way of ensuring we can include as many people as possible in the race.
Thank you for your patience, we will be in touch shortly to confirm.

Same here... Fingers crossed

See you there, I got my upgrade from the reserve list too :-).... Now I've got to finish off the racing special, get fitter and lose a couple of stone... Got no hope in the real race but would like to do OK amongst the older riders and I definitely plan on having the prettiest bike
I certainly won’t be winning any awards for pretty bikes, or posting fastest times.
But I might be the fastest bloke there called Kell.
I got in, 2nd time lucky, or maybe an apology for me paying to replace the BB that went in a few months, then recalling it months later. Then again, still have to pay for my place, so just lucky I guess. Except that I've also got to ride the Ride London-Surrey 100 for the Stroke Association the next day, on same Brompton, so that'll be my excuse for not making a massive effort on the Saturday, honest. I think I best book some holiday for a day or two after.
I may or may not be able to make it now.
I'm having an operation on my shoulder on April 19th, and will be spending a month in a sling, with the surgeon telling me that it will take up to 4 months t ofeel back to normal.
I'll have to play it by ear.
Sounds like me last year. I hope the surgery goes well, but being religious about the physio exercises afterwards helps a lot. Although, my hands still don't feel the same. I wish you all the best for speedy recovery!
Well, I'm back on my bike after the op, but have some catching up to do.
As a test I went out last night and did the 8 lap course as it's just down the road from work.
Not difficult (other than the traffic lights and pedestrians randomly wandering across the road). I imagine the biggest problem on the day will be weaving in and out of people.
When I did it a few years ago, the biggest problem was remembering it was supposed to be a race - I was continually distracted watching other the participants
My biggest worry is that I'm doing the Ride London-Surrey 100 the next day, so won't want to waste my legs too much
Same here. Are you doing the 100 on your Brompton too?
