2023 Grades (these will be linked to headings below during the weekend before each weeks racing)
Grades for Week 1 – Wednesday 1st March 2023
This week the grades have been based on the selection at entry. Everyone is racing the core loop.
If you selected A or B you will be in those grades (these have been checked with last years results)
If you selected C, ‘unsure’ or ‘sport’ then you will be in any of the mixed 1, 2, or 3 grades. These are all equal and in most cases schools will be grouped. The results from these races, along with the selection of ‘All’ or ‘Sport’ for the next races, will determine the changes in grades for the following weeks.
Grades for Week 2 – Wednesday 8th March 2023
These grades have been calculated using the previous weeks results and any other information provided to registration. Please note which race you are in, and which wave start.
There is no formula for this so it’s never going to be perfect. Please, if you have gone down a grade this may just mean that some more riders registered this week and there are more riders to rank. Just enjoy being near the front of a grade race!
If there is a glaring mistake or if you’re just not happy then please make contact with me. I’m happy to correct things.
PLEASE NOTE: Each grade is riding a slightly different course this week. Check out the maps!
Grades for Week 3 – Wednesday 15th March 2023
This week applies similar grade calculations to Week 2.
Grades for Week 4 – Wednesday 22nd March 2023
The week 4 races are graded in age groups (Age as at 31/12/23). Please note the earlier race start times. If you are in the wrong grade please email email@example.com or arrive early enough to change races at registration.
‘Yet to Grade’ riders
You need to get to registration with enough time to consider what grade you want to ride in. Maybe you know someone that is a similar level of rider? Remember you will get the best riding in the correct grade as you will have less people passing you or less people for you to pass!
