Oxfordshire AA Road Race Grand Prix


The Oxfordshire Road Race Grand Prix is competed for over 15 races throughout the season.  In each race the first 4 men and first 3 women from each participating club form the teams.  The first team scores 25, second 22, third 20, fourth 19 and so on.  The scores are added up through the season and the two worst scores discarded to decide the winner.  In the competition for individuals, you score points in each race according to the percentage of the field you beat and your two worst scores are discarded.  Full details of the rules are in the Grand Prix Rules attachment below, and a full list of prizewinners since the competition started in 2002 are in the Prizewinners attachment.

The sixth round of the 2024 Grand Prix season took place at the Didcot 5 on 7th July.  

Headington's men continued their winning streak, notching up their 5th win in 6 events this season, but their women's team was largely absent at Didcot, allowing Abingdon to edge closer in the standings.  Matt Lock has also won all but one of the six events this season and maintains his individual lead over Matthieu Marshall and Connor McGurk.  Lucy Ambrose of Headington takes over from her team mate Leonie Glasson at the top of the women's standings despite not competing at Didcot.
