2015 Time trialling Forum/Club BAR Competition

ROLL UP ROLL UP FOR THE GREAT FORUM BAR COMPETITION (FoBAR)

After it’s inaugural success in 2013, there is now an annual Forum Best All Rounder (BAR) competition. The competition is based on the historic British Best All Rounder (BBAR) competition (read all about it here and here), but since the aim of this competition is to get some more of us entering and racing some time trials, we’ll keep the distances a bit shorter.

Rules
* To be eligible for the FoBAR riders must submit their best two times of the season for both 10mile and 25mile time trials. The winner will be the rider who achieves the fastest average speed across all four rides.
* Because it's just for fun, the rules can be pretty lax, but all qualifying rides need to be genuine TTs, no home spun strava segments please. Local club events, or open competitions are all fine, so long as you’ve got a number pinned to your back.
* Submitted time should be the time keeper's, not whatever it happens to say on the Garmin. If you want to post a link (or hastily snapped phone photo) of the time sheet as "proof" then thats cool, but it's just for fun so we'll trust you if you don't.
* To enter, just click on the big red link below…

Spreadsheet Instructions
* Pretty self explanatory, but just enter your name and your best times for each distance. "10a" refers to your best 10mile time and "10b" to your second best time, so when you beat your seasons best, remember to edit your "b" time as well. Don't go buggering about with all the other columns because you'll only break it, and since I plagiarised it from another site I won't know how to fix it. :ninja:.
* The FoBAR is only run over 10 and 25mile distances, however because this is all just for a bit of fun, we encourage you to ride some longer events (e.g. 50mile) and post them up on the spreadsheet as well :-).

There will be when I have a moment... I have it all planned and I still owe CCS a double portion for her 2013 victory and 2014 triumph..

It will appear I PROMISE, but maybe not until after I finish the PhD :-)

Agreed, but did you notice that your 2014 times would have beaten CCS's 2013 times? If only you'd finished in 2013 then perhaps you'd have won a pot noodle cake!
