Scoring

5th – 50
6th – 45
7th – 40
8th – 35
9th – 30
10th – 30
11th-15th - 25
16th-20th - 10

Ties are broken by number of 1st place finishes, then 2nd, 3rd, etc.
Scoring is based on the official results, changes will not be made after protest period has ended.
Points are not transferable across categories in the event of an upgrade

Team Scoring

Scoring will be the total points earned by team members across all categories. The team with the most points on a race day will ‘win’ the day and each race day will be scored according to the same individual scoring table.

To score points for their team, riders must register under their team name so that their affiliation can be identified in the results.

Each rider is responsible for ensuring they have properly registered their affiliation when signing up for events, corrections will not be made once results are posted.
Minor variations in registered team names will be accepted, as long as they are easily identified by the scorer in the results (eg “02 Cadieux, 02, Team 02 or Wolverine Sports Club, Wolverines Cycling”)

If a rider changes teams mid season any previously earned points will remain with the original team, any future points will apply to their new team.
Series completion bonus points will apply toward the team total.

2019 Standings

The standings for the 2019 MBRA Road Race Series are tallied up after each race in the series has taken place.

The standings so far can be found in the current results spreadsheet.
