Summer Road Grand Prix

The Summer Road Grand Prix is a multi-event competition that runs across the club’s Road season. There are typically ten qualifying events with points being awarded as follows:

– In the Open category, the first Ranelagh finisher receives twelve points with each subsequent finisher receiving one point less, down to the tenth finisher who receives three points. All other finishers receive two points.

– In all other categories the first Ranelagh finisher receives six points with each subsequent finisher receiving one point less, down to the fifth finisher who receives two points and all other finishers receive one point.

The category winners will be decided on the basis of the best aggregate score from two less than the total number of races in the Grand Prix. So if the Grand Prix includes ten races then each individual’s best eight scores will count. In the event of a tie, the next best score will be taken into account, and if there is still a tie, the last remaining score will also be taken into account.
