With just two events left only two riders can now finish on top of the Handicap League.

Paul Ward has 41 points and Dave Trevor has 38.

Points are 6 for first down to 2 for 5th and 1 point for all other positions.

The best 10 scores count and Paul's lowest score is 2 and Dave's is 1. So, if Paul wins and gets 6 points, his total goes up by 4 as a 2 score will be cancelled. If Dave scores 6 his total increases by 5.

A great illustration above by Ed of how the handicap points actually work.

Basically, once you have ridden 10 events your lowest score is deducted and replaced with your higher score and so on and so forth.

So if you have scored thus:-

2 1 4 6 4 3 5 3 2 6 = 36 pts

In the above example, your lowest score is 1.

You then ride and win on H/C. You score 6 but because you have already ridden 10 races, your lowest score is deducted and replaced with 6. Your tally now looks like this:-

2 6 4 6 4 3 5 3 2 6 = 41 pts

Your lowest score is now 2.

You race and come 3rd on H/C with 4 points. Therefore, your new score is the difference between 2 and 4 points ie 2 points so your new points score becomes 43 pts.

Clear? If not, questions on a postcard to the Club Captain please...
