1. Best person.  Vote for anyone you feel has made a valuable contribution to the club this year.

2. Most improved.  Vote for the adult rider that you feel has improved the most throughout the year.

3.  The Kinrara Cup has 3 nominees and you need to read the following descriptions before placing your vote:

Rosie Brown – In the Southern XC Series she came 2nd, 1st, 1st, 1st and 2nd. She is now Southern Champion and won the whole series. In the National Series, as there is no Sport, she was riding up in Expert – she came 4th, 5th and 6th.  At Hadleigh (Olympic course) Rosie raced in the Elite race where she finished 18th. In cyclocross, a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and two 7th places as well as coming 21st in the Elite National Race.

Tim Davy – June 2015 – Tim cycled with around 350 riders from 23 different countries from Venice to Stuttgart via Switzerland ,Liechtenstein and Germany over the course of a week. A total of 750Km with 7,800M of climbs.  Sept 2015 – he cycled with around 800 riders in the RAB (Ride Across Britain) event – 969miles over 9 days with 47,593 feet of climbing. £2,270 raised for charity for both events.

Phil Miles – The MB Race took place in July from Combloux near Megeve, a French ski resort in The Alps. It’s billed as ‘The most difficult mountain bike race in the world’; Phil can’t vouch for that as he hasn’t done them all.  It started at 6am with 1200 riders setting off on the typical French course with plenty of singletrack. The first part of the race was cool and shaded but at 10am the sunshine caused temperatures to rise to 38C which saw 800 people drop out of the event before the 70km mark. To get from 70km to 100km there was a 2,000m climb in full sun to bring the total ascent to 5,200m. Phil was wilting but not as fast as those around him. He finished 39th overall and 5th old git.
