Every year, trophies are awarded to club members. Below is a breakdown of how these trophies are awarded:
1. Time Trials
We have trophies for each of the following distances: 25, 30, 50, 100 miles and 12 hour. Times / distances are your best single result at each relevant distance recorded at CTT (Cycling Time Trial) events.
There are also two ‘Best All Rounder’ (BAR) trophies:
Short Distance BAR – Your best time at 10, 25 and 50 miles added together and expressed in MPH.
Long Distance BAR – Your best 50 and 100 added to your 12 hour distance expressed in MPH.
Hill Climb Trophy
The fastest person up the designated hill, currently Primrose Hill out of Moulton towards Gazeley.
The winner on Handicap times in the designated club event, currently at Red Lodge.
Club TT League Trophy
This is a season long competition with a trophy for men and women. Your score is based on your best 10 results including any time keeping duties you perform during the season. Time keeping duties will be awarded with your ‘average’ score for the season. Points are awarded as follows: 50 points for the fastest time, 47 for 2nd, 44 for 3rd, 42 for 4th and reducing by 1 point per place down to 1 point for 45th place or lower.
This trophy is awarded to the person who improves year on year, not during the current season. The results are calculated as follows: Take your fastest time at each of the following courses during the last season, Fordham, Ashley A and B and Red Lodge. Add the four times together, then do the same again with the results for the current season. The winner is the person who has improved the most.
Note 1: If for arguments sake you did not ride Ashley A during the last season then your time from the previous season would be used.
Note 2: By virtue of the way it is calculated you will not be eligible in your first season of Time Trials.
2. Road Racing
One trophy awarded to the person with the highest placings in any road race held under British Cycling rules.
3. Cyclo Cross
One trophy awarded to the person who has the highest placing in the Regional Championship race.
4. Mountain Biking
One trophy awarded to the rider with the highest placings in their respective age category.
Points are awarded as follows: one point for a win, two for second, three for third etc in each race at the designated Track Championship meet. The points are added up and the person with the lowest score wins.
6. Young Achiever
Any member of the club who is at Secondary School who has excelled in any category or discipline.
This trophy groups together Triathlon and Duathlon. Your best four scoring events to count, these can be a mixture of Triathlon and Duathlon races. You would still be eligible if you had only competed in two or three races. ‘Off Road’ events do not count.
How are your results calculated?
Take the winners time and divide it by your time, multiply by 100, multiply this by your Age Cat Indices (see below).
Do this for all your races during the current year, add your highest four scores together. For example: Your age is taken as your age on 31st Dec in the current year as per British Triathlon. Assume you are aged 39 on race day but you will be 40 by New Years Eve. Therefore you are classed as Cat H (40-44) all season.
Winner’s Time = 60m 00 secs
Your Time = 80m 00 secs
Winners time divided by your time = 0. 75
Multiply by 100 = 75
Multiply by Age Cat Indices Cat H = 1.086 = 81.45
Therefore your score for that race is 81.45
