2021 Club Events Handicap Competition

After my email last week, Cam Hale suggested it would be good to have a weekly update of the competition.

After Tuesday’s Hungry Hill event there has been a complete change around of the top six places with Ryan Sharp now taking the lead. Based on total points accumulated in all club events. The best eight events to count. Winner in 2020 was Isaac Giffiths. Awarded on the basis of 10 points for 1st handicap decreasing to 1 point for 10th. 

After eleven events there are still a lot of riders with total points that are close to each other. In the lead now is Ryan Sharp with 54 points from seven events. Second is Steve Grout with 53 points from eight events. Third is James Langstraat with 48 points from six events. Fourth is Paul Malloy with 46 points from six events. Fifth is Paul Haywood with 44 points from eight events. Sixth is Paul Deen with 42 points from seven events.

Paul Haywood is the only rider to have done all eleven events held so far out of the twenty listed.

Last weekend saw two great rides & both personal best by our fast Pauls. A lot more to come from them this year with their current form.

Saturday in the Farnham Road Club 25 mile on the H25/8 course based at Bentley, Paul Haywood’s 52:20, improved his time from 2019 on the A3 course by 24 seconds.


Sunday in the VTTA 50 mile championship on the F2/50 course near to Cambridge, Paul Deen’s 1:47:03,  knocked over just over 6 minutes fom the time he did in 2016 on the Bentley course.The official result still hasn’t been published, but with the course a few hundred yards long, Paul was very disapointed with almost certainly missing both the Club & Surrey/Sussex VTTA age records.
