The South DC Sporting tt Series is a competition that is open
to all first claim members of South DC affiliated clubs.
There is no need to register for the competition as any qualifying ride by a member of a South DC affiliated clubs will automatically be recorded.
The season long competition consists of eighteen sporting events from February until October; you will be awarded points based on your position in that event, 150 points for first place, down to 1 point for 150th place.
The competition is decided on your highest scores from 9 qualifying events plus all bonus points. Starting at 150 points for the winner, and reducing by 1 point per position, means the fewer riders there are, the more points you can get.
Any number of events can be ridden as your best placing in each event will automatically count towards the competition. We will subtract your lower scores once you pass 9 events.
Times are of no consequence (except for team position) as it’s your position in the final result on the day that counts.
