Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 1 – 10th May 2017

Last night saw the start of the Season long club 10’s and this Year the format of the series has changed slightly.  Previously the series was a handicap competition with points gained in each riders’ 5 best rides counting towards their final score in the Guardian Cup.  However there are 10 rounds in total so the past few seasons have seen some very close final scores as several riders have gained high points scores in weeks where few riders took part.  So to spice things up a little the committee has decided to increase the number of counting rounds to 7 out of 10.  Therefore 175 potential points are up for grabs rather than 125.  In addition there will be a separate competition for a trophy yet to be named and this will be based on a similar points scoring system but the points gained will be based on actual times and not handicap times with 25 points for first and also with 7 counting rides and a maximum total of 175 points.  I hope that is clear but if not I’m sure you’ll soon catch on.

Below is the result for the first round showing actual times only.  The points scores will follow within the next couple of days when I’ve got my head around Ady’s spreadsheet.  Looking forward to seeing the competition unfolding across the season.  For those of you who didn’t ride you missed a cracking evening with nice warm and still conditions for a change.  Only 9 rounds left so make an effort to have a go as you may surprise yourself as you see the improvements week on week.

Great to hear that @WeaverValleyCC Oulton Park Series was a success and they are planning to run it again next year #useitorloseit

I hope it's ok to ask for some advice on here? What is the best way to prepare yourself for hill climbing. I'm cycling a 50 mile route next weekend in North Wales which has a climb of 4700 feet in total. I'm ok with the distance, but think the most I've climbed over that distance is 3200 feet. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
