The Discount Skips Handicap is the 2nd race in our Club Championship. This is a 50km handicap road race run at Calga on Saturday September 1 at 2pm. This is being hosted by CCCC as part of the Peter Parkinson 50km Handicap. Online entries are open at https://entryboss.cc/races/1100. Online entry is $20. Entries close on Friday August 31st at 6pm.
Each person has been grade. Grades are viewable at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aDaZltgjTr-9dcyVUyd_UNlmg_mRlPKoYCzVXcAOmk8/edit#gid=0.
These grades will be used to determine you handicap. You will be advised you handicap just prior to the race start. Women will ride with the men and will most likely start with the D grade men.
The PLCC podium will be the first three club members to finish, regardless of grade. We will award points down to 10th place. In addition, there will be bonus points if you podium in the overall race.
We will also award points down to 10th place within each grade. I hope this provides an incentive for all riders to continue to push hard all the way to the finish line, even if you are caught by a chasing grade and dropped.
There will be prize money for the top 5 places, first women and Most Aggressive rider. The most aggressive rider will be the person deemed to have driven their group the hardest to catch or stay away from other groups. The winner will come from the group of the winning rider, but won't necessarily be the winning rider. Brian will follow groups on course and will be the sole judge of the most aggressive rider.
It looks like we have sourced another limited edition vintage wine to hand out to the winners. This one is a beauty. Wait till you find out what it is.
I can also refute the rumours that the lucky door prize is a skip full of rubbish but we do hope to have something that is worth being there for.
