Whilst we hung on to our top spot in the Age-Graded competition in Week 25 the return after injury of Steyning’s world-record holder, Ian Richards knocked us off our perch a week later. His outstanding times certainly put me in my place!

  1. The age grading in use for this League is several years old, so the age grades should be slightly lower percentages. The most recent age grading tables have not yet been implemented on the RWA website, although I did implement them last year on the Australian version of the website which I also created. I’ll probably switch the tables when the league finishes, as I didn’t want anyone questioning why their age grades seemed to have dropped mid league.
