These are the handicap pairings for Wednesday 9 May drawn by Mike Edwards and handicapped by Paul Winchcombe.
For those that are wondering how the handicapping works I can explain the math but perhaps not the logic, but it is based on last year’s times, this year’s handicap for the Jack Nunn Series, this year’s results and an assumption that if someone has never ridden faster than “X” that if paired with someone whose time is “X-3”, they will not achieve a greater magic than “X-2” for example. Hopefully last year’s wild swings will not be repeated but past performance (as they say in finance) is no guarantee of future performance.
|Rider 1||Rider 2||Handicap|
|Owen Burgess||Simon Cox||Scratch|
|Simon Kay||Emma Angove||0:00:45|
|Martin Priestley||Mike Gibbons||0:00:45|
|Paul Winchcombe||Andy Summers||0:01:00|
|Ian Potts||Sue Crane||0:01:45|
Remember you can come and ride as a solo rider for a time and that we need help on the night or one of the pairs will have to give up their ride.
