2 race formats – 2 points level
the 2019 points system is made easy and simple, no fancy calculation or hidden rule that you would discover the hard way.


  • Each race in the series allows the rider to score category points (Solo male, solo female, team)
  • The amount of points is defined by the rider’s position at finish, for the first 20 finishing riders
  • Beyond the first 20 positions, each finisher scores point.
  • The following chart details the points given for each position/finisher for both race formats: Sprint, (time-limit < 120hours) and Divide (time-limit < 240hours).
