POINTS SYSTEM FOR NOSCA SPECIAL SERIES
AIMS: 1. Season-long competition for
NOSCA riders to encourage Non-Standard events where there are no pressures on
times and which can therefore have an extra enjoyment factor and perhaps appeal
to some who may be less attracted to standard distance time trials: notice how
many keen riders are attracted to MTB and Sportive events so please help to get
this idea off the ground.
2. Include all non-standard
individual events viz:
Apr 29 Caithness CC,
Loch Calder, 23m
Jul 15 Caithness CC, Loch Calder, 11m
Jul 29 Forres CC, Downhill, 6m
Sep 01 Cairngorm CC, Mackie Trophy, 14m
And, if held, Sep 08 Black Isle GP, 40m
3. All categories, ie, Fastest/
4. To be based on a points system.
Points amassed from each event. Variation of points with placing to be such that
missing an event need not prevent an overall win. Therefore, for each category,
“1st” means 1st NOSCA rider etc.
5. Priority of Awards. Overall fastest takes priority, eg,
if a Vet or Junior is fastest overall he/she takes that award as well as the
first Vet or Junior award. (We may wish to alter this for next year but let’s
see how it goes: the main need is to get the Series established). Money prizes
as per the normal NOSCA one-man-one-prize system.
TROPHIES: There will be trophies or medals and also money prizes for each
category at the end of the series.
