The South West Cyclo-cross League Committee have been working hard throughout the year to try and get a standardisation of prizes across all events so that we have a minimum standard across all rounds and to promote equality.

We have issued guidelines for use this season by all organisers. These include a minimum prize value for all categories dependant of the number of entrants. Organisers are welcome to increase what they award, but are always asked that they meet the issued requirements as a minimum.

Organisers are then asked to feed back to us what they actually awarded on the day to each category. This information will be used by the committee to ensure that the standard of the league is consistent and we will work together on how it can be developed in the future.

How it works.

The following committee agreed guidelines explain how the prize allocation is awarded on the day.

  1. 1st prize is always awarded. (see also notes 4 & 5)
  2. 2nd prize is awarded when there are more than 5 riders in the category.
  3. 3rd prize is awarded when there are more than 10 riders in the category.
  4. Senior race. If there are only 2 riders in a category, then  minimum first prize is reduced to £15 value.
  5. Senior race. if there is only 1 rider in a category, then minimum first prize is reduced to £10 value.
  6. No money should be given to U8s, U10s, U12s; however the top three in each category should be recognised on the podium and be awarded a suitable prize, examples of these are - medals, bike products, large bags of sweets.
  7. No money should be given to Novice; however they should be recognised on the podium.
  • Youth Race First prize value is set at £10, second prize £7, third prize £5.
  • Senior Race First prize value is set at £20, second prize £15, third prize £10
  • Cash prizes where given may be given as goods to the equivalent value.
  • Winners may be awarded greater prizes on the day than those shown here at the individual race organisers discretion.

Your feedback on how the committee do this, or any other topic, is always welcome. Either through the website contact or particularly at committee meetings.

We always welcome new volunteers to the team.
