Categories

The main category is an Open Category where no race tag is needed. All riders will automatically be counted in the open category competition.

SDW club members will also be filtered for a separate side competition – no name tag is required for this but please contact Simon Miller if you find yourself missing from the SDW results filter.

In addition, results will be filtered by name tags for the following categories for separate competitions:

Women – Race tag = (W)

Over 45s  - Race tag = (O)

Under 16s - Race tag = (U16)

Under 12s - Race tag = (U12)

Note: Women can apply multiple tags as appropriate.
 

Tags are added by amending your Surname in the RGT profile settings e.g. Clem Fandango (O)

 

Teams

A separate competition also exists in Series 2 for Teams. Simply contact Simon Miller to notify of your team consisting of a minimum of three people (no max). The aggregate of the best three points results from each team in each event will count to team series standings with the team's best 5 of 7 events counting. If only one or two riders enter an event, they can still contribute to a team score for that event with zero points for their missing riders.

A club may enter multiple teams but riders can only enter one team. You can add a team at any point during the series. 

 

Points

Points will be allocated by place as follows: 100, 95, 80, 85, 80,......[2 points less per place from 5th down to 20th]… 78, 76, 74, 72, 70, 86, 66, 64, 62, 60, 58, 56, 53, 52, 50 …[1 point less per place down to 69th]. Any rider coming in 70th place or above will still earn 1 point for each race.

For the elimination race evening (two back to back races), the sum of the two results determines the overall event placing. Ties defer to highest race placing of the two events or the eliminationr race is still tied. In the event of same highest placings (ie two riders have a 1st and 2nd ) then the result in the last race breaks the tie. Note: Elimination results will reflect order of elimination which beyond the top 3 may differ +/- 1 from RGT results that are based on timings.

Riders in sub-categories (e.g. Women) will have points allocated in the same way for their own standings e.g. the first female rider across the line finishes 5th in the open category and scores 80 points in the Open Series standings but 100 points in the women’s standings for first place in the women’s category. The same approach applies to the SDW club competition.

Ties in final series standings will be decided based on the best result in the last event.

 

Results

Open Category results will be published shortly after each race has completed on RGTDB.com and in the App (go to Events, then My Events, click on the event and then Results).

Results and series standings for filtered categories will be published asap after the event on this webpage in the document download section at the foot of the page.
