2018 Rider Information
The field has been divided into 3 groups/separate races based on ability/age. There will be 3 separate Leagues with points scored for the first FIFTEEN in each race group counted towards an Overall for each group plus category prizes for each group.
The first ten in each race will score: 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.
There will be promotion/demotion between groups if riders perform above/below the ability of their group. The Overall Winner of the 2017 NMRRL will be determined by the NMRRL Committee based on performances of all the groups.
Each evening 2 of the groups will race with the other group marshaling or having a night off. Riders will race 10 evenings, marshal 3 times with 2 nights off.
Marshaling/Nights off are determined by group and NOT on an individual basis.
Please ride in your club jersey if you belong to a club.
1) Marshalling is COMPULSORY. A rider must turn up to marshal on their designated night(s). All marshals have to sign on. A substitute is allowed if a rider can't make it or is on holiday but should notify myself or the nominated organiser in advance.
2) If a rider misses their marshaling duty they have the chance to marshal the following week or at the next race they turn up to ride. It is also possible for them to marshal instead of a night off.
3) If a rider still does not marshal, the rider will be disqualified from the rest of the 2017 NMRRL.
4) If riders are on holiday they should make me aware of the dates so another marshaling date can be arranged beforehand.
