Timing/Scoring:

NEW this year we will be using a point system instead of cumulative time to combine all the stages. This system is designed to equally weight the stages by eliminating large time gaps on single stages while still factoring time into the final results. 

Winner of each class on each stage will receive 0 points as they are 0 percent behind the winner (they won). All others will receive points based on the percentage of time that they are behind the winner on each stage. The rider with the lowest number of points after all stages will be the winner.

The formula for points given on each stage will be ((Racers time/winners time)-1) x 100.

Here are some sample results showing how this will be calculated:

Rank         Bib          Time                   Points

1              27           10:00.00             0.00

2              88           10:30.00             5.00

3              17           11:00.00             10.00

4              33           11:12.71             12.12

5              75           11:41.16             16.86

6              49           12:00.00             20.00

In the sample above, the third place finisher is one minute behind the winner's time of 10 minutes. This is 10 percent of the 10:00.00 winning time so the third place finisher would receive 10 points for this stage.  Second place is 30 seconds behind and thus is 5 percent behind the win so their score is 5.00. 

A few others have been added to show how the precision will work.  If you are using a calculator then you MUST convert time to seconds before doing the math. The math used to calculate second place is:

Racers time = 10:30.00 or 630.00 seconds

Winners time = 10:00.00 or 600.00 seconds

630.00/600.00=1.05 – 1= .05 x 100 = 5.00

Points will be ROUNDED to the nearest .01 precision so for 4th place the calculated point result of 12.1183333 is rounded to = 12.12.

Overall time will be used as a tie-breaker within the points system.
