It is with great anticipation & excitement that we announce the re-establishment of one of the most coveted cycling prizes for Masters Women & Men riders, in the Manawatu.

Past winners such as, Nicola Wallace, Deb Cuff, Catriona Pirie, & Glenys Taylor in the women’s, & Roger Nevatt, Marcel Hollenstein & “The Racing Grandad From Rangiwahia” Bob Wakelin in the men’s.

The championship consists of four different disciplines, 2 Road Events, & 2 Track Events. A specific & detailed handicap system will be administered in relation to each riders age category. This is to allow for all competitors to have a fair chance of racing. It is also designed to encourage masters riders of all abilities & ages to “Have a Go”

Our “Master Riders” are a group of incredibly talented, supportive & greatly appreciated members of the Bike Manawatu community & beyond. Resurrecting the Overall Women’s & Men’s Masters Championship, is a special way of saying “Thank You” to our masters, who give so much to cycling in the Manawatu.

Championship Determination
In each contested age group the champion plus 2nd and 3rd positions will be recognised, results will available for all competitors. Points are awarded based on the fastest time for each age group in each event. Each age group champion and other positions are determined by the accumulation of points over the 4 events, the champion will have the most points.

Points for Age Championships

Maximum points awarded to the fastest time in each age category –

  1. Track Sprint                      50 points
  2. Individual Pursuit              50 points
  3. Hill Climb                          200 points
  4. ITT                                    300 points

Calculation of Points

Points are calculated for every competitor in age groups for women and men. Points awarded are directly proportional to the fastest competitor in the same age category.

The mechanism of points calculation is simple and explained as follows:

  • The fastest competitor in each age group and event will be awarded maximum points.
  • Slower competitors points in the same event will be calculated using:

Fastest Competitor Time x maximum points for event = Points (for slower competitor)

Slower Competitor Time

  • For each event points will be rounded to the nearest whole point. Calculated decimal points : 0.00 to 0.50 will be rounded down to the whole number before the decimal point; above 0.50 to 0.99 will be rounded up to the next whole number above the whole number prior to the decimal point.

E.g. ITT calculation:

Fastest Time 30mins.00secs. x 300 points = 285.71. Rounded to 286 points.

Slower Time 31mins.30 secs
