FAQ’S RE TEAM EVENT:
- You do not need to declare teams on a week to week basis. Your first 3 males and females in the results associated with your club will form the team score.
- Teams can do as many or as few races as they wish. The winning team in Portlaoise (for example) will get 10 points, 9 for second and so on. Each race will be the same format and the team at the top of the table after 7 races will be the team winner.
- Team scores are based on Gender Rank in the race. So if the winning female comes in 20th overall, she contributes 1 point (and not 20) to the overall team score. The best team score achievable at any race is 12 (M 1,2,3 – F 1,2,3)
