Middle Marker Competition

Club Evening Series Middle Marker Competition

This is a supplementary competition to encourage the middling or up-and-coming rider from one year to the next by rewarding participation and to highlight progress of those riders who qualify for the competition the previous year. At the end of the series a trophy is awarded to the overall winner.

Qualifying Criteria

Any current member, with an average time for a Pevensey 10 or 14 mile evening series event the previous year, that isn’t above the average time of all the Pevensey 10 or 14 mile evening series events ridden by all the members the previous year, can qualify for the middle marker competition.

How the Competition Works

For each Pevensey 10 or 14 mile evening series event ridden points will be awarded to eligible riders in relation to other eligible riders: 30 points for first place down to 1 point for 30th place. Riders that do not qualify for the competition are disregarded in the allocation of points. Regular riders participating in more events are rewarded by receiving points for every qualifying event they ride. The rider with the highest number of points at the end of the Evening Series wins. A trophy will be awarded to the winner.

Any 10 or 14 mile Evening Series event starting at Pevensey.
