I went to look at the who was leading the current BAT/BAR/NorCal Points series and realized there is about a gaggle (more than five) points races going on at one time. From what I could discern the the ones with the arrows were the important ones.
NCNCA Point Series – This looks like the old BAT/BAR standings. Still one of the best ways to gauge who is the BMOC in NorCal. It tracks pretty much every race… God help the points keeper. There is a lot of honor in being the NorCal BAR, since many of the former winners went onto international or pro careers. There just isn’t any money in it. This is a great tool to figure out who is awesome at the beginning and end of each year. It’s kind of like the UCI ranking system. Some might say it’s a judge of who races the most, others might say it is a hardness calculator. Current Leaders: Vince Owens, Beth Newell.
NCNCA Premier Series – This is a newer invention and might have some form of prize or money for the winners at the end. The Premier Series is only tracking 20 of the top races and the selection is awesome. They have pulled the most classic of the classic courses. I hope this series takes root and the NCNCA can put some money/muscle behind it. Would be cool to add a U23 or U25 group too. This will be a great go to article when the well dries up. Look for some Premier Series coverage. Current Leaders: BJM, Bec Werner
Junior Points Series – While not looking super up to date (i know we all have day jobs but somebody probably needs to do a quick clean up) I think a separate junior series is a great idea. It probably could just be folded into the NCNCA Premier Series and focus on the 17/18 year old Men/Women. Anything that keeps the juniors beating each other up rather than us is good in my books. Current Leaders: A bunch of young’uns.
