APRIL 2021 TO SEPTEMBER 2021 featuring 13 races
Our popular 16km online virtual races will enter Series three from the start of April 2021. Each race is approximately 16km / 10 miles long and you’ll need to have a smart trainer or power meter along with a free registration with RGT.
WEST LONDON VR SERIES THREE 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 14th April at 7.30pm (UK time).
WEST LONDON VR SERIES 3 TEAM CLASSIFICATION. Whilst all riders should enter and ride each race individually, they can concurrently score tteam 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 two, three or four riders and the individual points earned by the top two from the team 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 four. 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
