Handicap competition 2020

Post by Simon Dighton » 18 Jul 2020 16:13

Will probably run as best 6 results from calendar. Results from week 1

Firstly thanks to Gemma for organising and everyone for marshalling (as I passed Dave Cole I must admit I thought Dave looked like he was having much more fun with a flag than I was pushing the pedals round) - huge turnout and went super smoothly - paying online saves a lot of scrabbling for change etc as well.

Some great times out there, awesome from Roger and George, sub 20 on a fast course must be a real possibility. Great to see Ed back in action, not so good to see him quicker than me...Same with Richard, Fenella and Mark, hope more Beacon can join for next week & Ian / Gemma both recover from injuries. Here are the scores on the doors (have restricted Ed and Fenella to base times given first time on this course for a while but next week handicap time will be the ride from Wed.

Act H'cap H'cap time Points
Roger Cutler 20.12 1.31 18.41 40
George Thorne 20.38 1.43 18.55 39
Mark Roberts 23.33 4.30 19.03 38
Richard Kent 26.54 6.11 20.43 37
Ed Moss 22.43 5.30 21.00 36
Fenella Brown 26.00 7.00 21.00 35
Simon Dighton 22.58 1.55 21.03 34

Any questions please let me know and if I have missed out any Beacon riders shout now.

Best, Simon

On a tough windy day (except for the way put!) some notable PB's but none more so than Rosie Croggan who smashed her previous best time by a distance to put her within a whisker of beating 25mins - and will no doubt do so in more clement conditions

Re: Handicap competition 2020 Standings so far

Post by Simon Dighton » 23 Aug 2020 15:54

Looks wide open at the moment but first person to show their intent is Fenella who tops the tables after 4 rounds (did 19th Aug get run - haven't seen any results). Plenty of people still in the running though

Re last week, it did get run, albeit with a small field because it was raining right up to the start time. The results have now been posted.

More to follow for the 26th but congrats to John for beating his PB and scooping up the points. Ed and Carl both restricted to base points, with Ed taking the higher spot due to quicker ride.

Re: Handicap competition 2020 cumulative results

Post by Simon Dighton » 27 Aug 2020 19:30

3 events to go, although the Open 50 is on the same day as the Beacon Hill Climb. Get an early start & back in time for the climb anyone? Top 6 results count. All to play for realistically within the top 5 with Fenella heading the rankings followed by Ed but others still in contention.

Re: Handicap competition 2020 - penultimate results

Post by Simon Dighton » 05 Sep 2020 08:16

With one round to go Ed sits on top of the table. Mark Roberts, Roger Cutler, Fenella Brown and Richard Kings can all catch Ed - but means doing either the hill climb (recommended)on the 13 Sep or the Midland 50 (where entry is now closed).

Re: Handicap competition 2020 FINAL RESULTS

Post by Simon Dighton » 15 Sep 2020 20:23

Congratulations to Mark Roberts for sealing the deal on the hill climb. 3 riders were in serious contention going into the final event (a choice between the Midlands 50 where yours truly was trundling round, long and painful) and the hill climb (short and very painful). Ed Moss was leading going into the final round and was looking to improve his score by doing well here and dropping his least strong event as only the top 6 events count. Roger Cutler was also in the wings despite having a very high bar in a handicap competition. Nevertheless it was Mark R who beat his PB on the hill climb by 24 seconds and take 39 points on the day propelling him to first place.

Congrats to all who took part - in total 26 riders from Beacon took part in the Handicap competition with 71 races between them despite the shortened season.
