“You didn’t beat me. You merely finished in front of me” * Pairs Champs R3

Wednesday 16th Aug. 19:00. Pairs Championship R3.

Round 3 of the Pairs champs is this week. For those of you unfamiliar with the Pairs Champs nothing special is needed just turn up as normal ready to go for 19:00 at the clubhouse (a bit earlier would be good so we can sort the teams out).

The full details are here http://www.evrc.co.uk/content/pairs-championship but its essentially a handicap race set up so anybody can win. The pairings are based on the fastest runner being paired with the slowest runner, second fastest with second slowest etc. You then hurtle off in the opposite direction to your partner, meet up somewhere on the loop, pass the baton, high five, chest bump, turn around and sprint back to the start. The first team back wins.  

Route: 4-6m http://www.evrc.co.uk/sites/default/files/documents/Handicap%20Route.pdf (its the usual 6m route)

Mud: Good to firm conditions.

Cow watch: Low and fluffy. Kamikaze is currently clear. If populated run down and round as they head towards the top gate when spooked. Field up from furnace is populated with the fluffy ones. They do have baby fluffy ones but they are very passive so as long as you amble they don’t care.

Current Standings. 2014 Champion Paul is holding the top spot, but 1 race can cause a a massive swing. Remember its your best 3 scores that count, so if you’re on this list you’ve got a shot at winning. The Grand Final is the Handicap time trial 6th Sept.

p.s the refit continues at HQ but we will have use of the portacabin showers. Or just bathe in the tears of the defeated.
