    ok.....

    if i have my bike insured, and choose to cover it for racing, does this mean if i crash, i can claim off the insurance?

    thanks

    BC membership/licence covers you, not the bike, I think.

    As I said, I think.

    I was under the impression that LVRC events were covered. (Obviously BC wouldn't cover TLI races :smile:)

    3rd party only covers the other party when it's your fault surely?

    to be honest you'd be very unlucky to break anything during a race, I can't even remember the last time I saw a pro break anything substantial

    Bones or bikes walker? Have a look through Youtube and you'll see some high profile stuff from both.

    I meant bikes sorry, I've seen the odd bone break every now and then, and thinking about it I vastly remember a wheel being broken against a dog last year in the TdF.
