Norwich Motor Group Sportive Trophy

Screen shot 2015-03-02 at 11.41.22

Whose up for a bit of mileage?

As the Norfolk Motor Group Sportive Trophy competition enters its third year the first two months have seen the usual bumper crop of miles from two-times champion Jonathan Greenway.

I find myself in third spot after what can be described only as a brave ride with a thigh strain and a broken chain to contend with.

So where do you stand in the Sportive Trophy table?

It’s a league table of miles ridden in organised, measured rides such as sportives, reliabilities and audaxes which must be completed wearing club kit (in order to get the sponsor name out there).

There’s no deadline (yet) on entering mileage for previous months which are emailed to newseditor@vcnorwich.co.uk

So if you have braved the wind and the cold over the past couple of months let us know and get some more names on the board.

NMG Sportive Trophy – it’s the 2014 final countdown

Congratulations to Jonathan Greenway – winner of the NMG Sportive Trophy for 2014. He’ll get his trophy back at the annual awards dinner.Screen shot 2015-01-29 at 12.24.29

So the slate is clean for 2015.

To start at the very beginning: The NMG Sportive Trophy is awarded to the rider who completes the most miles in organised rides over a year. By ‘organised’ we mean events over a measured course, paid for entry, non-competitive, and completed wearing our wonderful VC Norwich club kit.

It takes in sportives, obviously, along with audax and reliability events. Anything where, if we feel the need to do so, we can check with organisers that the event was ridden as claimed.

So why not join in for 2015? Right now you are equal first with Jonathan Greenway. Claims should be submitted to newseditor@vcnorwich.co.uk by email only. And only this address please, submissions to info@ or to any committee member’s personal email won’t count. The claim needs to say the event and miles completed.

As a technical point, Garmin measurements can differ from claim to claim so the Sportive Trophy Committee meets and awards the same mileage to every rider who completes a given event, taking an average (mode average, not mean average that would be silly) of the submitted claims.

So put your name down and get riding!

NMG Sportive Trophy update

It’s getting cold and wet out there so no surprise to receive only two claims for sportive / audax / reliability claims in for November. Michael Meadows appears to have secured his podium place with only one month to go. And reigning champion Jonathan Greenway has cemented the 2014 title with a month to go by already overhauling his 2013 total by 361 miles.

Any outstanding November claims by email please to newseditor@vcnorwich.co.uk to which address December claims should also be submitted.

NMG Sportive Trophy

Screen shot 2014-10-27 at 22.56.42

Now I know a lot of people might think the fat lady is approaching the microphone, and it’s all over bar the shouting … but to have only one claim for mileage since the first weekend of the month is a bit thin. It sees David leap one place up the chart. Yes we know that mileage monster Jonathan Greenway is well on the way to winning (and bringing the club more kudos, more to come on that in the October newsletter) but come on, let’s keep the podium fight going. Claims for mileage to newseditor@vcnorwich.co.uk for participation in organised, measured events, but you must have worn club kit to do so (and the team has been examining the pictures from the CSUK Pinewood event). You know who you are …
