Our popular 16km e-racing online virtual races is now in Series five , our third year!

It is totally free to enter and Wahoo RGT subscriptions are free too.

    WEST LONDON VR SERIES FIVE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP: The winner of each race will be awarded 100 points with 99 for second down to 1 point for 100th and 101st onwards. There are 13 races, on alternate Wednesdays starting on Wednesday 13th April at 7.30pm (UK time).

 THE DIRTY DOZEN CLASSIFICATION Primarily for riders who miss one race due to holiday or illness, or maybe had one bad race. This takes a rider’s best 12 results and compiles a best of 12 category.

 WEST LONDON VR SERIES FIVE LADIES LEAGUE The points from your six best rides will be counted and the female rider with the most points at the end of the series will win this competition. It is possible to augment your score by bettering your current 6th best result. To have your results included in the Ladies League please email your name to westerleydm@gmail.com

The leading lady in any race gets 100 points with each subsequent female finisher getting 100 minus the number of places further back in the unisex race they finish. This keeps the incentive to beat men in the sprints because by beating men, you can score more points in the Ladies League. So, if the second lady finisher finishes twenty places behind the first, she gets 80 points and so on…. Our aim is to have Ladies Races where the girls can enjoy the benefits of the peleton, enjoy sprints and don’t end up isolated and solo on the course. It’s a new concept we are evolving to make it more fun for everyone. The Ladies League is based on your best six results from the 13 in the series, so you don’t even have to take part in every race.

 WEST LONDON VR SERIES FIVE TEAM CLASSIFICATION. Whilst all riders should enter and ride each race individually, they can concurrently score team points in the team classification in each race if they choose to join a team. Riders will be participating simultaneously in both the individual and team classifications.. Teams can be made up of between two, and eight riders and the individual points earned by the top two from the team in any race are added together to give a Team Score (ie if the top two riders scored, say, 83 and 77 points individually, then the team would also score 160 points). So you will only really need two riders to enter a team, but can’t have more than eight. If only one rider can make it we will still count their solo score for that race. Remember, this is in addition to the individual championships so either being in a team or not being in a team has no effect on your individual placings. You do not need to ride alongside each other, it’s just the best two individual scores that go to the team tally. Clubs may enter more than one team. TO ENTER A TEAM PLEASE EMAIL THE RIDERS’ NAMES AND TEAM NAME TO westerleyDM@gmail.com

  WEST LONDON SERIES FIVE ‘SIX TIMES TABLE’ COMPETITION (SIX OF THE BEST)The points from your six best rides will be counted and the rider with the most points at the end of the series will win this competition. It will be of interest to anyone who misses a race in the main competition, but even if you don’t, it is possible to augment your score by bettering your current 6th best place. Naturally, up until Race 4.7 it will ‘mirror’ the main classification.
