The Maurice Holton Trophy:
Now in it's second year and with a new format - 'Winner takes all'. All South West National B road events to count together with the Regional Road and Regional Circuit Championship events. Trophy plus £250 to the winner.
For all of the Trophies/Series, all rounds will count.
Riders will be eligible to compete for the trophy(s) if they are members of a club registered in the South West Region or private members registered in the region. Points for the trophy(s) will be awarded to the first ten finishers from 10 points to the winner down to 1 point, for each of the nominated races, regardless of which region the rider is registered in.
Only riders from the South West Region can claim points and other region's riders can take points away. IE, if the winner of a nominated race is from another region and the second placed rider is from the SW Region he/she will be awarded points as the second placed rider and will score 9 points and so on. At the end of the season the South West rider with the most points will be awarded the trophy.
In order for riders to be aware of the running total of points scored, each promoter of a nominated event will be made aware of the list to inform riders prior to his event. We hope our membership will support these efforts with both entries and race volunteers.
