Re: [RC] AERC Directions - 1 Day 100's - Truman Prevatt

The national points award became know as the "great trailer race" and your observations are valid. Trouble with the Championship Series was it wasn't supported by very many so it really didn't mean much.

The Championship Ride seems to be supported and seems to be growing. It recogonizes the 50 and 100 mile events - what the members wanted. On the other hand it is primarly a "regional event" with the biggest majority of the riders coming from within the region.

I seems that for the majority of the membership the National Championship in any format is that that important to them. How about this for a revolutinalry cencept - have no national championship. Since most riders ride in thier regions and most rides get their riders from within their regions - have regional championships instead. It might make more sense and get more support from the riders.

Having the national championship be determined by the over all year end points could be difficult for many riders because of the particular region they live in and the endurance activity in their area. I could see it turning into more of a "those with the most money win"....they would have the means to ride year round and as often as possible.
I really would prefer going back to the championship series format. Everyone was allowed to participate in 2 regional rides of their choice, and the national ride. I feel this format would level the playing field for the average rider hoping to compete at the national level.
and just my two cents....I love one day 100's and can't wait until my youngsters are old enough to start trying them again....
