Club 10m Time Trials

Postby mike price » Tue Mar 06, 2007 8:28 pm

I have only recently joined the Club and am planning to compete in 10 mile time trials this year. This will be my first year of competition at the age of 41!
Are there any dates set yet for the 2007 10 mile Time Trials?
Thanks,
Mike

41 don't worry Mick I didn't start till I was 50, it hurts just the same whatever age you are !!
But you will be very welcome to come and ride the club 10's which start on Wednesday 11th April 07. As these time trials are on a handicap basis
everybody should have the same chance of winning the H/C league.
Cheers

i'm up for this too, glad to hear that at 37 i'm not too old either :wink:

how does the handicap system work (just curious as i don't want to end up beating some sand-baggers who plod along in race 1 and then tonk me by 2 minutes with a higher handicap)?

You will be given a handicap on your first ride of 6 minutes ( may vary due to age).
Your handicap time will be your actual time minus your handicap eg 28:45 - 6:00 = 22:45 . The fastest handicap time receives 20pts, 2ndfastest handicap 19 pts down to 20th with 1pt. Best 7 scores to count.
Your new handicap is calculated by subtracting 20 minutes from you actual time eg new handicap for a 28:45 ride is 8:45.

On you second ride you will use your new handicap from your first eg 8:45 this handicap is subtracted from your Actual time to give a handicap for that ride.
To caclulate your handicap allowence for your next ride 20:00 minutes is subtracted from your actual time to give you a new handicap time. If this less than your current handicap you will use this new handicap time. However if the calculated handicap is greater than the current handicap time you will keep the same handicap. In other words your handicap can only reduce!!
Eg

Week Actual handicap Handicap time Next weeks handicap
1 28:45 6:00 22:45 8:45
2 27:59 8:45 19:14 7:59
3 28:01 7:59 20:02 7:59
4 26:23 7:59 18:24 6:23

We also have a points competition based on actual time.

At 37 and 41 you'll be two of the youngest riders in the series.  Give it a go!

Thanks,

P.S. Thanks to everyone I have contact with so far and looking forward to meeting everyone at the Club and getting more involved.

Thanks for the detail of the route for the Club 10's. I am looking forward to them immensely and am planning to come to virtually all of the dates. Most of my winter training has been done in the gym and it will be interesting to see how the times I have been doing inside compare to the outdoors on my road bike. I am a complete novice in time trials and road races, having never taken part in either before. It will be interesting to see how I develop during the season.
I am afraid work wrecked my plans to compete on Saturday. I was originally a day off on Saturday, but events changed that and my bosses told me I had to work all day Saturday as well. As you can imagine, my thoughts were definately elsewhere come the afternoon. Wednesday evenings will not be a problem in that respect.
I look forward to meeting you all on the 11th April and all the best to all Club Members taking part in races before then.
Mike
