:: Evening League Veteran’s Standard Competition (Leili Clarke Trophy)
The Veterans’ Standard Competition runs in parallel with the main Evening League Competition. The purpose is to allow Veterans (over 40yrs) to maintain an interest in competing despite their increasing years.
Standard times are calculated for each League event except the Hill Climb for each Veteran rider’s age based on the VTTA Standard Times for 10 and 15 miles (www.vtta.org.uk/standard.html).
Actual times are deducted from Standard times to give a plus or minus time and riders are ranked downwards from 50 points for the highest plus. Total points for the best six events count towards the Leili Clarke Trophy for the highest point’s total.
Category awards are also made for 70+, 60+, 50+, 40+ and Ladies categories.
The Leili Clarke Trophy was established by the late Nobby Clarke in memory of Leili, his wife. Nobby was a stalwart of the Club for many years and a long serving time-keeper with Leili as his recorder.
