RULES & INFORMATION
•For each race, you will be given a point score based on the number of people you place ahead of, plus 3 points for the TT’s and 7 points for the road races.
•The top three finishers, male and female regardless of age, will receive a 1 point podium bonus.
•1 point bonus for ‘Merckx’ TT riders, except for the Coal Bank HTT.
•1 point bonus for single speed or CX bike on the MTB TT.
•Men and women will be scored separately.
•Your best 7 events will count towards your overall score for the season.
•You must finish the entire race to get points for the race.
Example: If 12 men participate in the GilaMega TT the top finisher would receive 15 points and last place would get 3 points. (11 points for beating 11 others + 1 point podium bonus + 3 points for TT = 15 points)
*All 40K TT finishers will place above the 20K TT finishers. I.E. the last place 40K finisher will be scored as if he/she finished in front of all the 20K riders.
**There will be a sprint in the valley for bonus points.
Eligible Age Categories for Men and Women:
NEW — Regarding Age Categories: Final age categories for awards will be decided according to participation with a 5 person 5 event minimum to qualify for a category (at least 5 people have to participate in 5 different events at some point during the series). Age categories with less than 5 participants in at least 5 different events will be combined with the next younger age category for prizes.
Prizes: We will award prizes for the top 5 overall and top 3 in each qualifying category. Prizes are TBD and usually consist of a bage with a fabulous assortment of swag (If you have something good to donate – please send Spencer an email)!
IMPORTANT: Our top priority is having a safe series. Please keep this in mind at all times! The races will be held on open roads and all traffic rules and regulations will be in effect. All riders must obey all traffic signs and yield to traffic. All riders must ride in a neutral manner through intersections. Anyone taking unnecessary risks will be disqualified. These races are not sanctioned by anyone and are being run by volunteers!
