SuperSeries Points Structure
Two-Day Events (Victoria TT/Triathlon):
Athletes will compete for total points against the entire group over two days of competition, regardless of age or gender. Once both days points are tallied, overall weekend results will be posted as one group, and SuperSeries results and points will be separated by gender and age.
Day-1 Individual Time Trials:
1 point will be awarded to the fastest athlete (per age category and gender) for each TT on Day-1, and will be added to that athlete’s final score on the Day 2 event.
Only athletes who compete in Saturday’s TT events will be eligible for the weekend total points. Sunday’s Triathlon placings will be separated out using only Saturday’s participants. Sunday’s Triathlon points will be awarded based on the total number of athletes, with the winner scoring points equal to the number of the competitors in the 2-day event, and the last athlete scoring 1 point. Saturday and Sunday’s points will be combined to provide overall placings. SuperSeries results will be separated by gender and age – with the winners of each gender and age receiving 25 points and the following placings per Super Series points structure below.
If athletes are unable or not wanting to compete in the Saturday June 10-Day 1 TTs they will be permitted to race the HPR draft legal race on Sunday June 11-Day 2 but will not be eligible for Super Series standing points for that race. An athlete must complete both Day 1 AND Day 2 in order to be eligible for the Super Series standings for that race.
