There are 4 events in the Dave Gudgin 25 Time Trial series and anyone who completes 3 of them is automatically entered for the handicap competition. This was won by Nigel Hale in 2015. The dates are 10th May, 24th May, 7th June and 21st June. All Tuesdays, starting at 19:00. The course is 1U/25, the same as was used for the Club 2-up and Medium Gear events earlier in the season.
Each rider is given a “handicap time” that will be deducted from their finishing time to give a handicap result. The average of the best 3 handicap results is then taken to determine the series winner. The trophy is huge!
Contrary to popular opinion, one’s handicap is not based on the number of pints of bitter that have been bought for Nigel Wilson over the past 12 months. The handicaps are actually based on best performance in the event over the past 2 years. For anyone who hasn’t competed before, the handicap is based on age and gender.
Here are this year’s handicaps. Members should contact Nigel if they would like more detail around the handicap allocated. If anyone else wants to enter then Nigel will provide a handicap.
