Handicap competition for Settle WWW event 5thSeptember 2007

Handicapper: David Holdsworth

The handicaps were based on the average speed over the best and second-best rides. People who had only ridden once were assumed to be capable of riding 1mph faster that their one ride. This was to stop last year’s “Chris Hirst” effect, where a single ride can set an artifically low mark.

My original idea was that only those members who had ridden at least one evening 10 were qualified for the handicap competition. Consequently, anyone who had not ridden at all this year was entitled to ride, but not to be considered for the handicap competition, or to ride off scratch.

However, this seems a bit hard on Dave Campbell who has been out of action all year owing to a bad back, so follow the red star to see what has been decided after the event.

* After the event, I’ve looked at last year’s handicapping, when the handicapper was not as generous as this year. Last year Dave Campbell’s handicap was 2-18 less than Liz’s, which would put him on 7-14, but people who had only ridden once were treated more meanly that those who had ridden at least twice. So, I guess that that a fair handicap for Dave is 6½ minutes in round figures.

All handicapping is really guesswork.
