Club Time Trials, Hill Climb and Downhill Competitions

In 2017 we will be holding a total of 23 Club Time Trials including our Open Time Trial, our Hill Climb, a 25 mile competition, the Social Groups' Downhill and an inter Club 10 in conjunction with the Dorking and Cranleigh clubs.

Our 2017 Competitions will be as follows: (Unless obvious to the contrary, "Club Members" includes both men and women).

Ian Hiscock Handicap Trophy

This will be awarded to the fastest first claim Club Member on a handicap basis. Each rider who wishes to compete for this trophy must have ridden five 10 mile races and two 14.06 mile races before the 1st August 2017. This can be any of the Club or Open events that we are holding.

The Time Trial sub-committee will then review the entrant's times up to that date and give each rider a handicap. This will mean that the fastest Club rider at each distance will be given Scratch ie. (NO time allowance) for that distance and the slowest rider will be given a handicap time of, say +7minutes to reflect the fact that their qualifying time is 7 minutes slower than the scratch rider over the same distance. All handicap allowances will be at the discretion of the competitions committee after reviewing the season's performances.

Each rider will then ride the 14.06 mile race on course GS/189 on the 1st August and the 10 mile race on course G10/57 on the 8th August which will be the qualifying events for this trophy. The handicap allowance will then be removed from the times actually recorded and the rider with the fastest net time over both races will be declared the winner.

Of course, riders who do not want to participate in the Handicap Trophy competition may still enter the qualifying events but in the case of over- subscription, preference will be given to those who are in the running for the trophy.
