Summer League 2019 – Provisional standings

The provisional standings for the Central TREC Group 2019 Summer League are now available. Please check them to make sure that all your results have been included and, for those in the top 6 in each league, that your name is spelled correctly.

The league placings are calculated on the member’s best 3 placings at any affiliated TREC GB 3-phase competitions in 2019, with 10 points awarded for a 1st place, 9 for a 2nd, 8 for a 3rd and so on. Individual and pair riders are included in the same league, so it doesn’t matter who a pair had ridden with (even if they were not a member of CTG). Ties on points are split by looking at second day scores.

Any queries or corrections should be sent to central@trecgroup.co.uk by no later than Sunday 10th November. Prizes will be presented to the top 6 in each league at our AGM on Sunday 17th November, so we hope to see lots of you there! If you are unable to attend please arrange for someone else to collect your prize as they are difficult to post.

Great Bowden TREC training

The times and information for the Great Bowden training this weekend have been emailed out to those who have entered. If you have entered but have not received an email, please check your Spam folder to make sure it’s not hidden itself in there and if not email central@trecgroup.co.uk to request a copy.

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday or Sunday.

Great Bowden training

The schedule and booking form for our Level 1 training ride from Great Bowden on Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th August is now available on our Calendar page. The event is aimed at new, inexperienced or novice Level 1 riders and aims to give a flavour of how a British TREC competition works without the stress of competing for points and placings. We may be able to offer nanny riders to those wishing to have a go but unsure about venturing out alone, please mark this on your booking form or send an email to central@trecgroup.co.uk.

Oakham results

The results for the Oakham TREC competition are now available on our Results page. Our thanks go to all those who gave up their time selflessly to help, judge or support riders, and to those competitors who entered into the spirit of the event and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings within which they rode. Our apologies for the delay in releasing results, inputting all the scores for such a large and complex competition is a time consuming process. Rosettes and prizes for the winners will be distributed as quickly as possible.

Park Farm Results

We hope that you all had a great day out at Park Farm. Despite storm Hannah putting in an appearance on Saturday and the associated challenges of building a PTV course in a gale the weather on Sunday was definitely with us and the sun even put in an appearance for parts of the day. Once again we have to thank the small army of helpers who supported the competition, with out them these events could not run.

Scores were released on the day and prizes presented. Please see below the results sheets. Results for all phases are included in the overall results for that level, just scroll down. Unfortunately it wouldn’t split out the pairs and newcomers from individuals so you have to find your details from the whole list.

Central Summer Season Challenge

We are running a challenge through the summer season to add an extra dimension to our TREC season. For a the list of challenges see the Central Challenge Data sheet or take a look at our calendar page.

Challenge runs from 1 April 2019 – 30 September 2019
Open to all Central Trec Group members (including supporter members). There will be two challenge prizes presented one to the highest placed member and one to the highest placed helper (non-riding member).

Aim: To encourage members to try something new, or stretch themselves just a little bit more (and have fun!)

We have created 41 challenges ranging from helping at events, to training to competing, covering all three disciplines.

The aim is to complete as many challenges as you can during the summer season. Each challenge is worth one point, the individual with the highest number of points wins. In the event of a tie the green challenges will out weigh red, which out weigh yellow. The weightings will be 1 yellow, 1.1 red & 1.2 green (but these will only be used in event of a tie).

Each challenge can only be accounted for once – so if you compete at more than one competition run by another club you only get to claim that challenge once. Where a challenge is scaled e.g. the PTV low branches has a yellow (score at low branches), red (score more than 7) and green (score 10) if you score 10 at one competition you can only claim one challenge (e.g. the Green). If you score 10 at your next competition you can no-longer claim green, so you could claim red, and if you do the same again at a third competition you could then claim yellow – but in order to get all three you have to have done low branches 3 times and scored appropriately.

Some challenges (e.g. the helper challenges and training are only relevant at CTG events), where as others can be completed at any affiliated TREC competition.

Use the Excel version of the Central Challenge Data sheet to record which challenges you have completed at which event (including date). Results will only be accepted on this template. You will also be asked to provide evidence of results (with the appropriate parts highlighted) to help us cross check the results (these can be photographs or scans that are emailed across.
Score sheets need to be submitted by 14 October, in order for us to check results and calculate the winner.

We encourage challengers to post updates on our facebook page and to share highlights from their season with us.

Gook Luck
