TT Series Standings Rules

Weekly entry is £4 – entry and payment is online via loveadmin

For 2021 we’ll have the following series categories:

Overall Male & Overall Female

Youth (u16) (M&F)

Junior (u18) (M&F)

Senior (M&F)

Vet 40 (M&F)

Vet 50+ (M&F)

Road Bike (Open Cat) (No TT bike/clip on bars)

Most Improved (Open Cat, Road & TT)

Series Standings are taken from the 6th highest placings plus volunteering points

The number of points awarded for 1st overall each night are 40 points.

Within each category the winner would also get 40 points, diminishing by 1 point for each place below.

40 points are awarded each time for volunteering. These are added to the 6 highest points in therefore taking the form of “bonus points”.

Furthermore, inclusion in the final standings is dependent on a minimum of 2 volunteer turns. Except for under 18s (youth and junior riders) and female participants, where volunteering is not necessary to be included in the overall results.

There will be a minimum of 5 participants required for the evenings event to go ahead. However, if you volunteer on an evening when the event is called off due to lack of participants you will still be awarded 40 points. Likewise, if you’re a rider who turns up but cannot race due to 5 riders not being present, you’ll be awarded 10 points.

Riders under the age of 18 will need to have a parent/guardian sign a consent form to enable them to participate

The most improved rider will be awarded based on the percentage difference between their best result of the season and their prior slowest result. For example, if the best result occurred on week 6, but the slowest occurred on week 14, this would not count towards the result. The slowest result would be taken on the performances in weeks 1-5. Furthermore, the performance will be based on each equivalent course event, the slowest 10M TT will be compared to the fastest 10M TT.

Riders racing as a TTT or 2-UP, their results will not count towards the overall series.

REMINDER – per the updated CTT rules; a rear light is mandatory when taking part in any CTT time trial, this series included.
