This year will see the Odd Down Winter Series carry series points and prizes for the first time as well as scoring BC points. All points, including those scored in December rounds, will count towards a riders 2018 ranking. The races will score the following BC points:
Unfortunately, British Cycling have decided to downgrade Round One to a Regional C race – as a result there will be no BC points for Round One. This is something that they have imposed upon us and we are disappointed that it has worked out this way. We hope that this will open the opportunity for riders who would be racing on day licences (and therefore would not be eligible for points anyway) to give their first race a go before deciding whether to purchase a full race licence for 2018. Several riders from the Avid Sport team (including myself in the men’s 2/3), particularly in the women’s 4th cat race have already entered to take this opportunity to take their first racing steps. We appreciate all the support that local riders have given the racing at Odd Down over the last few years.
|Round Two onwards:|
|1st||10 points (3 points if less than 10 riders in race)|
|2nd||8 points (2 points if less than 10 riders in race)|
|3rd||7 points (1 points if less than 10 riders in race)|
|4th||6 points (0 points if less than 10 riders in race)|
The following series points will also be allocated to each race – full points will be awarded for each position even if there is a small field. Series points will count for all races including Round One and a rider’s best eight rounds will count (two byes):
|All other races||4th cat only races|
Series Prizes will be awarded to riders based on their points total accumulated across their best eight rounds of the series. This is an equal prize fund for both the women’s and men’s series.
|Best 40 years+||£20|
