How many Podiums did NCCH
earn so far this year!?

 

What a fantastic six months NCCH has been having!

We had a contest to guess how many podiums NCCH had achieved this year (from January – June 2018).

Guesses ranged from a low of 242 to a high of 342.

The actual number was… 381!

This is more podiums than we achieved in the entire year of 2015!

Congratulations to Kris Sirman for having the closest guess! You are our winner of our Cat5Gear Prize Pack!

 

So why have we won so many so far this year?

There are two large factors:

  1. The phenomenal growth of our Mountain Bike team. They have won nearly twice as many podiums this year (67) as the had won at the same time last year.
  2. The growth of Track racing opportunities. We did much more racing at the Velodrome in Milton this year, and the number of track podiums nearly doubled to 208!

 

 

Here are the result summaries along with some notes:

 

A couple notes about Medal by Level:

  • Notice how this graph really shows that the more difficult the level, the harder it is to get on the podium.
  • Local includes events such as NCIM Race Nights (Track), Kelso (MTB), the Velocrit, and the Midweek Crit (Road).

 

Although we are very proud of our Alumni and what they have achieved on the International front this year, we have not included their results.

Detailed results can be seen here.

Thank-you for taking part in already a phenomenal year! Let’s ramp up these numbers for the rest of 2018! 🙂
