4 Most Improved Rider Competition Rules

This competition will use the Summer League evening rides ONLY.
Your Set Time is Taken from your fastest ride from previous season, OR your 1st ride in the Summer League, will give you a Set Time and will also be given Tariff
Idea for this competition to give all riders of all albilies the chance of winning.
Your goal is to set your fastest time, that will give you the higher Tariff for any calculation.

TARIFF VALUE TABLE – using your Set Time
21:30secs = 50pts. 22:00secs = 40pts, 22:30secs = 37pts, 23:00secs = 30pts, 23:30secs = 24pts,
24:00secs = 16pts, 24:30secs = 15.20pts, 25:00secs = 14pts, 24:30pts, 25:30secs = 13.10pts
26:00secs = 12pts, 26:30secs = 10.90pts, 27:00secs = 10.00pts, 27:30secs = 9.70pts, 28:00secs = 9:00pts
28:30secs = 7.90pts, 29:00secs = 7.0pts, 29:30secs = 6.70pts, 30:00secs = 5.0pts
30:30secs and over = 3.70pts

Every time you record a faster time than your Set Time it will start a set of calculation of (Tariff points x Improvement in seconds) – this will be your competition points.

Examples of Points Calculation:
Rider A with Set Time of 23:05secs = tariff of 30 and their Best recorded time in the season to a 22:46secs = 19pts Improvement (30 x 19secs = 570pts)
Rider B with Set Time of 27:58secs = Tariff of 9.70 and their Best recorded time in the season to a 27:07secs = 51pts Improvement (9.70 x 51secs = 495pts)
