Page Index: Current Points, The Rounds, The Rules.

Update May2022: The first CDE round has happened thanks to SV. And the provisional results of the 3rd round from Wye Valley have been added to the main championship Current points, shown below. Remember, restrictions may cause some problems along the way so we may all need to be flexible with rounds being cancelled or changed etc. Read on for more info.

The 2022 Awards presentation will be announced nearer the end of the year.

Other Year's Championship Winners (On the Trials page)

This year's championship will be very similar to previous years but with notable changes such as; A few events may not have a route for every championship class. These will be taken into account with possible Sports, Sports Plus and Over 50's doing less Rounds. The Youth A, B and some C contenders will be able to ride most of the same rounds as the adults using their chosen routes. The D, E and some of the C Youth riders will be able to ride more suitable alternative events with choices of conducted route where club's are able to run them. Plan your year ahead with our Provisional Rounds List.

Main Championship Rounds

C/D/E Rounds

All rounds that were run at end of series less one will count. If a round is cancelled after rounds have been finalised then the championship will run all rounds run less one to count. Dates are initially fixed in January, but if a round needs to be cancelled then it may be possible to run on a new date with adequate warning to contenders.

The Rules

The Routes and Classes

Note: Class Numbers - Some results sheets may be tight for space and classes may be abbreviated to the numbers declared on the entry form so here is a quick cross reference.

1 - Open, 2 - Over 50, 3 - Youth A, 4 - Youth B, 5 - Youth C, 6 - Youth D, 7 - Youth E.

Note: We have amended the explanatory table for where you can and can't score points for clarity. There is no real change as CofC's have always been able to identify routes suitable or unsuitable for some Youth groups.

Riders, look for class you want to/should ride in along the top of the columns

Key to codes: x Points can be gained in this combination (Youth riders may not be eligible for more difficult routes, Reg's will say. This is a CofC's choice.)
n No Points can be gained if you've been a winner of this class within previous 2 years (unless >50 as you don't have to move up a route!) You will get points for the next route if you move up a route, of course.
o Can ride this route for no points (Riding down a level while injured etc.)
info Points can be gained if riding up a route by choice as long as remain on that route all year - Or, Ride up a route for no points. (Possibly only the higher route's points should be allowed as otherwise could be pot-hunting!) Only one selected route eligible per year ie no dodging routes to cherry-pick.

 

Winners of a championship class will move up a route for the next year, or ride as no award for the next two years.

(This set of rules needs updating in the light of Covid giving us a significant gap - more news when the Trials Committee have had a think!)

The exceptions to moving up a route are, of course, Experts, who can't get any higher, and Over 50's who are allowed to remain on the Sports Plus route. Winners can stay on the same route but will be ineligible for points.
