HCR Challenge Series 

During the year HCR has a series of fun morning riding events where people earn points where they place on the ride. Points are also offered for those who attend the the debrief session in the pub later that day.  The  current winner of this series is Geoff Wong


1.  Does the holder of the cup have to race in the next event.  
Answer: No its any two riders who race and meet the criteria  listed above. The cup holder can of course choose to defend his title.
2.   Why is the cup so small?
Answer: The cup has be specially selected so it is suitable to be carried in a back pocket of a riders jersey, this makes handover and passing over of the cup much more easy.
Editors Note: Actually the cup is this big as this, because after a HCR ride one day Geoff and Chris decided to buy the cup, they only had a fixed amount of money in their back pocket of their cycle jerseys!
