NOSCA SPECIAL SERIES 2008
AIMS:
This is a 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.
The series made a good start last year and the formula worked well and a number of riders have said that they plan to be more involved this year: the more who ride all or most events the more successful it will be.
