TT#16 Results – 11 August…
Handicap Trophy – 2022
The Handicap Trophy points are awarded for the number of riders on the night less Guests and First Time Members. So tonight 13 riders and 8 points on offer. A Handicap Time of 25 minutes or less means that you have either matched your PB or improved on it. A Handicap Time greater than 25 minutes shows how much you are off your PB.
To be in contention to win the 2022 Handicap Trophy you need to ride as close to your PB as possible or set some new PB’s over the final weeks.
Congratulations to Simon Winter for taking the maximum points on offer tonight.
|* H/C is plus as sub 25 mins|
Handicap Trophy – Running Total
16 races completed and only 2 remaining before the end of the 2022 season as Simon retakes second position from Shaun after 3 weeks away and gains 8 on Ruth also missing a week, leaving him only 14 behind with two races to go… will Ruth return to take this trophy for the ladies!... Gonna be a close call as always with the H/C competition.
Every entry, every second and every point counts now as the season heads to a close…
Good Luck to all.
