MoonRiders Tour [Europe Edition]
3, 2, 1, ... lift off! Team MoonRiders presents:
A stage race on the MoonRiders' home tracks. There is something for everyone on the trip around the world.
We take off with a crit race in Zolder/Belgium. As soon as we reach orbit, things don't slow down. There is a hilly race in Sobótka/Poland followed by a mountain stage in Winterberg/Germany.
After that, it's time to have a rest day and wait for the full moon on 19. November before jetting off to the Isle of Wight/UK for another (very!) hilly race. The sprinters can then look forward to the stage in Drayton Valley/Canada again. Finally we will land in Dublin/Ireland for the final individual time trial.
The races will be held according to the US crit points system
--- You can win the following jerseys (classification):
Golden jersey (open category)
We want the event to be as exciting as possible and as many riders as possible to have the chance to finish. Therefore your four best results of the six races will be counted for the overall classification (open category). So you can skip two stages that you don't like and still win the overall classification!
In addition, we will have three special classifications.
Silver jersey (silver / bronze category):
The silver jersey can be won by all those who are categorised in the RGTDB silver/bronze before the first event of the series in which they participate. The winner is the one who earns the most points from 4 out of 6 races. We do not want to penalise anyone for doing well. Those who get gold status during the series can still win the silver category.
The best sprinter will win the green jersey. Best sprinter will be the rider who can collect the most points in stages 1, 5 and 6
The best climber will win the red jersey. Best climber will be the rider who can collect the most points in stages 2, 3 and 4
