Scr = Scratch, or a handicap of 0:00. The Scratch rider is the fastset on past form. The handicapper then assigns a h/c to the other riders based on how far they are expected to finish behind the scratch person. This is based on a rider’s best ride in the last 3 years, knowledge of a rider’s form and/or a conservative guess (in that order). The handicap is then subtracted from your actual time to give your h/c time. So you, Sooz, as a newbie, were expected to finish 8 and a half minutes behind Peter (conservative guess as it’s your first event). This is subtracted from your actual 35:19 to give you a h/c time of 26:49. Your next h/c will be based on your new personal best. Well ridden by the way.
