WHAT IS SPEED JUDGING?
 
Speed Judging is where riders are directed to a circular route which they will ride anticlockwise (left turns) The riders are told the distance of the circuit and they must estimate how long it will take them to ride a set amount of laps.
 
All time pieces including computer, watch phone etc are handed in to the time keeper and the riders are individually set off.
 
After completing their ride the riders times are calculated. The nearest to their estimated time is the winner receiving 6 points. 2nd = 5 points, 3rd = 4 points etc.
These points are added to the riders previous points and at the end of the season the rider with the most points wins
 
Speed Judging is NOT a race!
