2017 CHAMPIONSHIPS SCORING
We continue to get questions over scoring for the 2017 season, so here's the "skinny" for how to score your Championships!
For the first time, the 2017 SMRI season consists of SEVEN rounds. That's one more than the traditional six rounds comprising seasons past. However, of this season's seven rounds ONLY the best six will count towards championships scoring. That is, we will count your six BEST RESULTS in each individual championship.
That means if you miss a round, fall down, break down, or you just don't feel like riding one day, you'll still get a chance to compete in the championships you care about!
Let's say a rider rides in three different championships.....A, B, and C. His results are as follows:
|CLASS A||CLASS B||CLASS C|
|1st: 30 points||DNS: 0 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 2||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 3||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 4||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 5||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 6||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 7||DNS: 0 points||1st: 30 points|
1st: 30 points
The rider scores 180 points in each championship. In Class A he drops round 7. In Class B he drops round 1. In class C he drops any round, because we only score 6 of his 7 wins.
The only time we'll consider ALL SEVEN ROUNDS is for use as the first tie breaker in the event of a tie in a championship. The second tie breaker will be number of wins. So, let's say two riders ride in a class all season:
|RIDER A||RIDER B|
|Round 1||1st: 30 points||3rd: 21 points|
|Round 2||2nd: 25 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 3||1st: 30 points||2nd: 25 points|
|Round 4||2nd: 25 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 5||1st: 30 points||2nd: 25 points|
|Round 6||2nd: 25 points||1st: 30 points|
|Round 7||DNS: 0 points||2nd: 25 points|
Rider A drops round 7 and Rider B drops round 1 leaving each rider with three first place and three second place finishes. Both riders score 165 points and tie for the championship. The first tie breaker is to tally all seven rounds. Considering all seven rounds Rider A scores 165 points and Rider B scores 186 points, so Rider B is the declared the Class Champion!
We hope this clears things up with regard to scoring for the 2017 season. Feel free to contact any club officer if you have any questions.
