After a wash out on October 30th and then again on the 13th November, the Total Rush Points Series (Race 1) is BACK ON this Sunday!
The first of two rounds starts this Sunday 20th November with the second round scheduled for Sunday, 11th December along with the Total Rush Kids Race.
And to seal the deal for this weekend the Weather Gods have done a complete about face and decided it really is Spring after all !
What are the rules ?
Total prize money of $1000 is awarded to the three riders with the highest aggregated points score across the two races.
Points will be allocated to the top five riders in each grade:
- 1st – 8 points
- 2nd – 5 points
- 3rd – 3 points
- 4th – 2 points
- 5th – 1 point.
The series is open to competitors from all CA clubs, offering the chance for ANY rider from ANY grade to win the prize money (Note: Men’s A, B, C & D grades and Women’s A & B Grades only – sorry not open to Women’s C & E grades). Entry into both races is not mandatory.
With prize money for both men and women on offer, the series is sure to be hotly contested and has always been a popular event in the SKCC calendar.
