 How many points does this one get him?

 @snomaster: Looks like it's 38 points but the UCI rules are a nightmare to work out.

 @timsim07: would it be 76 as its a national champ so double points ? ...
  • 31 0
 @timsim07: Those are National Ranking Points unfortunately, not the fabled UCI Points. I thought I'd at least get some this weekend but upon checking the rules it turns out there's only points for the top 10. Bummer. Page 88 here -

 @ben-cathro: Ben, where do you think you are losing time compared to the top 10 guys? Do you think you can capture it back with a change in training? We know you have skills. (edit) I think that people who are already doing World Cups don't need the points from local/national races, those points should be distributed to the ones who don't have points so they can collect them to be able to race the World Cups.

I will be seeing you in Snowshoe. All the best until then.

 @bostondonmtb: Little bit of everything but for this race specifically it was speed comprehension. My brain was processing things as fast as possible making me feel like I was going flat out. Did my seeding run and placed in the 30's and realised I was going far too slow. Focussed on looking up more and letting things run in finals which upped the speed but as I hadn't practiced at that pace I made a few bad mistakes. All in all I'm pretty happy with 15th and I'm going to ride some more fast tracks to get the brain to filter out the noise and just focus on the trail ahead.

 @ben-cathro: You definitely want to be happy with that. Looking at the names in there, I'd say UK DH is super strong at the moment. Well done dude!

 It says a lot about British Cycling and it’s approach to gravity riders when so many top riders don’t compete at the National Championships let alone the National series.
  • 2 0
 Why just the main categories. There’s a lot more to National Champs than Elite men & women
  • 3 0
 Shame a lot of top riders didn’t compete.

 Looks like a pretty strong field by normal standards: Danny, Matt, Laurie, Charlie, Joe Breedon, Jamie, Taylor, Mike Jones & more.

 Not so many big names in the women's field, granted.

 @chakaping: definitely a stacked race but missing a few names that would have been at sharp end like Reece, Bernard and Tahnee.
  • 1 0
 @ShaunR123: True, would have been good to see how Reece fared.
  • 1 0
 I agree I don’t understand why they don’t bother. I would have thought National champ has enough status to want it. Certainly the Swiss and french events has the top riders there

 Are the top 10 women in the U.K. unsponsored or am I reading this wrong?
  • 1 0
 All you can take from this is that they are not on a team or club registered to British Cycling, does not mean they are unsponsored.
  • 1 0
 Depends what you mean by "sponsored".

 Well done KJ!
