We can now announce that an initiative between NSCC and Bike Bug North Sydney has been agreed to support the 2014 Beaumont Road Criterium Series.

BikeBug will provide four prizes to be awarded to the NSCC rider that achieves the highest points in each grade over the 12 races.

Yes, we mentioned a few weeks ago how we will put some zing back into the Beauie Worlds criterium races.

The 2014 BikeBug Beaumont Road Criterium Series is a points-based competition focussed on NSCC members only, across 4 grades (A-D).

Twelve race dates have been set for 2014 for the Beaumont Road Criterium. The dates are Sunday 16 March, Sunday 30 March, Monday 21 April, Sunday 18 May, Sunday 1st June, Sunday 22nd June, Sunday 6 July, Sunday 20 July, Sunday 17 August, Sunday 21 September, Monday 6 October, and Sunday 19 October. Changes may be made subject to adverse event such as wet weather.

Current race management and practice will continue, with open invitations extended to other clubs and cash prizes paid to any top 3 placegetters. For 2014, the race format will include 6 scratch races, 3 handicap races and 3 teams’ events.

Prizes Donated by Bikebug
The following prizes will be generously provided by Bikebug North Sydney and will be awarded to the NSCC rider that accumulates the highest number of points in each grade.
• A grade riders – Set of Fulcrum Zero wheels
• B grade riders – Set of Fulcrum 1 wheels
• C grade riders – Set of Fulcrum 1 wheels
• D grade riders – Set of Fulcrum 3 wheels

How do NSCC riders accumulate points?
We will be running a cumulative Points Series for NSCC riders across 4 grades. The idea is that NSCC riders will get points for participating in the race and extra points for achieving a podium finish.

For the scratch and handicap races, 15 points are awarded to NSCC rider who finishes first on the podium. Ten points are awarded for second and third places on the podium. For the teams' race, 10 points is awarded to each NSCC rider in the winning team however no points are provided for second and third place teams finishes.

A league table of accumulated points for each rider will then be posted after each race and a prize will be awarded at the end of the series to the rider who has attained the highest points in each grade. It is possible to win the Series even though you may not win a race.

Matt Garnon (A-grade) and Daniel Newman (C-grade) won their first races and now have 15 points! Jeff Nakajima (A-grade), Ran Virdi (B-grade), Chris Yeomans (C-grade), David Butts (D-grade), and Stephen Warr (D-grade) all got onto the podium and each have 10 points.

Many other NSCC riders who raced are on 5 points. The league tables will be up on this website soon.

Who is racing next Sunday 30th March to catch them?
