  • The Devon Cup

    As most of you are aware the Cornish Cup has been running since 2006 and is
    getting stronger & stronger each year. It has become an exciting & well
    supported part of the TT scene in Cornwall.
    So we thought it was about time we had our own competion here in Devon.
    For season 2014 we will start to run an annual Devon Cup, based on a
    similar format to the Cornish Cup.

    There is no cost to the rider to enter the Devon Cup, your club will be
    asked to pay £15-00 a year to enter the cup, this is the same cost as the
    Cornish Cup and covers the cost of the end of season awards.

    The Devon Cup will only be open to riders that are a fully paid members of
    a Devon Club who are affiliated to the CTT , and their club has paid the
    £15-00 annual fee to race in the Devon Cup..

    The season long cup will be raced over 9 races in the South West these will
    be incorporated into the existing calender ( just like the RNRMCA races )
    with up to 5 of your best results to count.

    There will be a points scoring system which is based on the Cornish Cup
    format, 1st Devon rider home 100 points, 2nd 99, 3rd 98 etc. ( Should any
    rider start and not finish a race they will automatically go to last position
    and receive the appropriate number of points )

    By entering a Devon Cup race you will automatically be awarded points in
    the Devon Cup and appear in the standings.

    There will be a Facebook Page and hopefully Website page with latest
    standings& info on both the Devon Cup & the Cornish Cup. ( Simon Edney & Tony
    Farnell are organising this )

    The award categories will be as follows ( One rider One prize )

    1st Overall 2nd Overall 3rd Overall 4th Overall 5th Overall
    1st Woman 1st Woman Vet 1st 40-50 1st 50-60 1st 60 + 1 Young
    rider (under 18 on Jan 1st 2014 )

    1st Devon Challenge, this will be the highest total of points gained by any
    rider who actually races all of the 9 events.

    I hope you find this exciting, as it will give those of us who just go "PB
    Hunting" something else to race for.
    Just imagine being in that Devon team that beats Cornwall next Sept !!!!!
