2017 National Points Competition

NATIONAL RANKING AND POINTS COMPETITION 2017

 

SCF has worked with local cycling event companies like to Cycosports to introduce a new National Ranking and Points System with the intention of:

1)      Increase opportunities for more winners and reasons to celebrate ;

2)      Encourage participation in multiple events in any one local racing season ;

3)      Complement SCF’s Athlete Selection Policy and thereby, ensure the athlete selection process for overseas competitions and Major Games remains robust and objective.

 

The National Ranking and Points System were reviewed at the end of the 2016 season with enhancements for the 2017 season. These include:

1)      award for highest ranked Singaporean team/club

2)      awards for highest ranked Singaporean in the men’s and women’s open categories

3)      presentation of pink jerseys for the highest ranked Singaporean in the men’s and women’s open categories

4)      the award of points in regional competitions which Singaporeans / Singapore-based riders regularly participate in (Tour de Phuket, Tour de Barelang & Nongsa Challenge).

 

Prizes

At the end of the season, SCF shall award prizes to the highest ranked individuals* and team/club, as well as the highest ranked Singaporean in the men’s open and highest ranked Singaporean in the women’s open categories and the highest ranked Singaporean team/club*.

In addition, the SCF may award prizes to riders according to their classification and may award a Points Leader’s jersey to both leaders of the individual and team classifications.

Details of the prize presentation award ceremony will be communicated by SCF to all winners after the final event for the season.

 

NOTE (*)

To qualify as the highest ranked Singaporean team/club, all top four (4) ranked Singaporean riders from that club must have at least 1 ranking point for the 2017 road series. In the event of a tie, only 1 prize (or trophy) will be awarded and this will have to be shared.

In the event of a tie in the individual categories, yellow jerseys will be presented to all the highest ranked athletes. As for the highest ranked Singaporean in the men’s and women’s categories, pink jerseys will be awarded.

Calculating Points - The Mechanics 

Determining Age

Age is determined by the present year minus the year of birth of the competitor (i.e. 2017 minus 2000 is 17 years).

 

Resolving Ties

In the event of a tie in the final ranking, the rider with the greatest number of 1st places on the ranking of races in the current year shall take precedence. If there is still a tie, it will be resolved by the greatest number of 2nd places, then 3rd places etc, whatever the rider’s placing.

Only places for which SCF ranking points are allocated will be taken into consideration.

 

Team Ranking (Best Team and Best Singaporean Team)

The team rankings shall be obtained by adding together the points of their four (4) best placed riders in the individual rankings (across all road categories whether male or female) in the current year.

 

Resolving Ties

Ties between teams shall be resolved by counting up the greatest number of 1st places, 2nd places etc. This will be based on events organised/sanctioned by SCF in the current year and obtained by the team’s four (4) best riders on the individual rankings.

 

Determining Best Singaporean Team

The Best Singaporean team shall be obtained by adding together the points of their four (4) highest ranked Singaporean riders in the individual ranking in the current year.

 

Changing/Switching Teams

Riders are permitted to move and change team names during the season, however no transfer of individual rider points will be permitted to be brought forward to the new team during the season. Are points won for the first team voided or do they still count for the first team?
Can a team member leave the country – presume their points are still eligible?
