BikingMan points system for 2019 World Series

To enter the 2019 BikingMan Series ranking, the same rules apply from the 2018 season series, riders will be required to be “finisher” on a minimum of two BikingMan races in the same category.

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 based on the rider’s position at finish, for the first 20 finishing riders
  • Beyond the first 20 positions, each finisher scores points.
  • The following chart details the points given for each position/finisher for both race formats: Sprint (time-limit < 120hours) and Divide (time-limit < 240hours).
