The current timekeeper (Jill) will be away for most of the winter series so we are looking for someone to step into her shoes. Full training will be given on how to set up and operate the timing system. Now is your chance to help! The system is electronic so some familiarity with using computers is an advantage. Email Jill or call on 541 0377 if you are able to help.
-Stage 1 - Massed start with sealed handicap. Sealed handicap has been basically a time given to a rider as considered he would need to start ahead to effectively finish all at the same time. Riders do not know the time before the stage.
-Stage 2 - Individual time trial
-Stage 3 - Handicap race to finish
This then effectively gives 5 sets of results to collate as follows:
1.Stage 1 fastest time and with example of 12 starters then fastest rider would receive 12 points, 2nd fastest 11 points etc
2.Stage 1 Sealed handicap winner would receive 12 points, 2nd 11 points etc
3.Stage 2 Fastest time trial receives 12 points, 2nd 11 points etc
4.Stage 3 Handicap winner receives 12 points, 2nd 11 points etc
5.Stage 3 Fastest time receives 12 points, 2nd 11 points etc
This method in the past has meant that all riders effectively have the same chance of winning the trophy.
