Pat McCabe Trophy 2013

This is a 10 round Club only time trial event with each participant's best 6 rounds counting. This really is a trophy for everyone - more often than not it isn't the fastest or strongest that wins but the rider that punches above their own weight. We want a safe competition open to as many members as possible which is why 2013 sees a change to the format.

In the past results were taken from GWCC riders competing in open TT events around the west of Scotland. In the past few years though numbers competing have been low and those not wanting to race on dual carriageways or lacking expensive time trial equipment haven't been able to take part.

So this year, ONLY standard road bikes are allowed, quiet courses are used and as Club only no racing license is needed. Timekeepers will set riders off at 1 minute intervals and record all finishing times.

  • Club only, no need for a race license
  • Low volume traffic roads (no dual carriageways or drag strips!). Other courses include Campsie Glen, Georgetown Rd and the Ballageich Rd.
  • No need for expensive time trial equipment (road bikes only)
  • Times will be handicapped so anyone performing well against their own benchmark will do well
  • EVERYONE will get a good workout regardless of their standard
  • Missed a round? No problem, join at anytime, best 6 rounds count.
  • Dates for rounds below - subject to change (updated 30/8/13)

Final results are shown below with net times after handicap and points for each round (15 for the lowest net time down to 1 point for 15th place). Actual times for each round are listed lower down.Top 3 riders:
