HMBA 2017 XC Pointscore

Even though many may believe that the calculations are quite simple, several things have gotten in the way over the past few months, including Christmas and organising the National DH Round, that have slowed us from being able to put together the final Pointscore for the Club XC Races.  But for those of you who have been wondering where you placed last year here are the final results:

2017 HMBA Cross Country Pointscore Winners

The winners of the pointscore is open to full club members only.

The pointscore is based on 10 races throughout the year, including the seven “normal” Sunday races, plus the three x 3 hour events.

Where a rider has changed grades throughout the year, for the purpose of the pointscore, they have been placed in the grade in which they completed the most races. They have received points for each race completed the old grade equal to the average points achieved in the new grade.

Riders must have competed in at least 4 races to be eligible.

The 2017 Winners, who will receive formal recognition at the AGM on 25 March 2018, are:

HMBA Club Racing Results – XC – Round 6 Awaba – 22/10/17

Great to see a good roll up of riders at Awaba today. 48 riders competed in the main event, and at least another 16riders in the kids participation ride. With so many kids turning up we’re going to need a few more volunteers so we can start timing the kids and getting some results put up for them.

Here’s a list of the kids that came out today to have a ride:

Hayden, Khan, Hamish, Ebony, Alex, Joshua, Alex, Archie, Cade, Ella, Koby, Will, Abbie, Arie, Henry and Chris.

HMBA Club Racing Results – XC – Round 5 Killingworth – 17/09/17

Killi Start 2HMBA XC Results rev1 – Round 5 Killingworth -170917A change of location today, brought about by the recent fires in the Heaton  State Forest and the uncertainty of whether or not we would be able to race at Awaba, saw us head out to our old stomping ground at Killingworth. It was great to be able to ride on some of those tracks again!

More than 50 riders enjoyed perfect riding weather. It was good to see so many kids that showed up for the kids ride before the main race. Plenty of those then rode in the main race on “the big track”. Remember kids, if you do ride in the main race, come and get a number plate so we can record your times.

A big thanks to our timekeepers, Alicia, Annie and Australia Team member, Cameron Ivory, all of whom donated their to make our race more enjoyable.

Results are attached. If you have any questions or notice any errors, please contact us via the “contact us” page and I’ll be happy to sort it out.  Gallery of pics to come.

Revised results attached – first mistake spotted!!

HMBA Club Racing Results – XC – Dungog 3 Hour – 27/08/17

Dungog put on some great weather for the three hour race today. 56 riders enjoyed some of the many trails on the Dungog Common. A big thanks the Allen and Chris from Dungog who play a big part in making it all happen up there – these trails are open all the time and it is great place to escape to and enjoy some great trails. (The Snake Trail is still my favourite and it links beautifully into Al’s Downer).
We also have to thank our wonderful timekeepers, Annette and Tara. They did a wonderful job and make the race just that much better!
Also, lets not forget our volunteer First Aider. Today it was Lynn from St. Johns. Many of you would not realise that the people from St. John who come to our race, and to other events within our community, are all volunteers and are not getting paid for their services. Please make sure you thank them when you can.
Results from today’s race are attached. Another win for the multiple world champion who warmed up by riding to Dungog from Newcastle in the morning before the race!
If you have any issues with the results, please drop and email to hmbaxc@gmail.com and I’ll happily try and sort it. Steve
