SVCC Strava Club Challenge
Join the SVCC Segment of the Month Competition
Here is a challenge designed for the club rider that likes a bit of a blast, not just on the hills, but on the flats and undulating roads as well. We hope the challenge will appeal to riders of all speeds and abilities.
Ladies are encouraged to have a go, so you will see a separate section for the top 5 ladies.
Each month a different segment will be selected. Whoever records the fastest time (male and female) over the segment is the stage winner. Placings contribute to the overall competition. There are no formal prizes for the monthly segments just the kudos and knowledge you’ve done well against your club mates. At the end of the challenge the winners are those riders that have accumulated the most points.
The individual Strava segments will if possible be created from our Sunday club rides.
Rules
- Competition is open to all members of SVCC
- You must have a personal Strava account and join the SVCC club on Strava
- Record a time on the nominated segment between Midnight on the 1st of the month and 20:00 on the last day of the month (20:00 cut off is to allow enough time to consolidate results before the ‘monthly’ analysis disappears in Strava)
- Only your best time counts so have as many goes as you like.
- Your time must be recorded on a human powered bike (not an electric/or motorised bike).
- At the end of each month the top 10 male riders in the age category (19 to 64) and the top 5 male riders in the age category (65+) and top 5 female riders will be announced and respective KOM and QOM points awarded.
- Over the course of the year there will be a good mix of flat, rolling, and hill stages that will contribute cumulative points towards the General Classification competition.
- Points are awarded to both competitors in the event of any tied times.
- There will be 11 stages this year, (February to December).
- The riders (male and female) with the highest cumulative points across all stages will be declared the winners.
- The organisers decision is final in any dispute.
- A reminder that the rules of the road must be observed and the safety of yourselves and others is always the first priority.
- May 2020 TT challenge. For this event only the final results will not include joint positions; for example, if there is a tie for 1st place then the first rider to record the winning time will get 1st place, the other rider will be awarded 2nd place and the points awarded accordingly.
Point Scoring
- 15,12,10,8,6,5,4,3,2,1 points in descending order for 1st to 10th places.
- Men over 65 points 10,7,5,2,1. Points descending order for 1st to 5th place
- Ladies points 10,7,5,2,1. points in descending order for 1st to 5th places

This months Strava Challenge old A30 TT
For those of you not familiar with a TT (Time trial) here are a few basic tips that may help.Hands on the drops, elbows in, sit forward positioning over the cranks to gain max power, chin up (try not to drop your head it’ll only add drag).
The course is a bit undulating so push hard on the ups and flat sections, recover (80% of max effort) on the downs.
The other factor to consider is wind direction, very important, get it right and you’ll fly!
Because this is a TT we will be scoring differently, same points added as before￼ but if there’s a tie for 1st place then the first rider to have achieved the fastest time gets 1st place the other rider will take 2nd place, so this time nobody can tie for positions.
