Ahead of Round 5 of the Club Championship this coming Sunday (HQ Kibworth Grammar School, Kibworth 25 mile course, first rider off at 9 am), where riders will also compete for the Armstrong and Hunter Cup, the composition of the DC Research League has been finalised.
The DC Research Leagues offers the chance for club members to compete with those of similar ability in a season-long competition. The League is based around the Club Championship and comprises five divisions. Riders are allocated a division according to their best performance on a 25 mile time trial in the past year, or if no time is available then a 10 mile time trial or failing that at the score keeper’s discretion. This means that the five divisions will each contain riders of broadly similar ability which should make for a fair competition.
DC Research is research company specialising in economics, creative and culture, operating across the UK from bases in Leicester and Carlisle. For more information, and examples of their work, visit the DC Research website or follow @DCResearchUK on twitter.
