Take a look at all the championships you could be eligible for (once you are suitably qualified), below we list them all, from our local Mid South events all the way to Interntional level.
This series is for the Pleasure Rides – Silver Gambler Qualifiers are usually Mid South Rides at both National and Group rides although occasionally a limited number of South East Rides are added for diversity. Points are awarded for distance and also for heart rate and speed. The heart rate and speed are judged using the Rufus Scoring system and results in points that are then added to the distance points. Awards for the Silver Gambler Series are presented at the end of season BAM and award dinner. To see the full breakdown of eligible rides and the Rufus points system please click here
