Each course has been handpicked by one of the nopinz R3R team for you to take on and they have provided you with their insight to the courses later on in the handbook.
Your best 6 results over the series will count and as you can see, there’s a good mix of course profiles. So you can either target your most-suited races, or enter all of them and better equip yourself for the dropped races.
The classifications will be the same as last season, with platinum/gold and silver/bronze. Your category will be taken from the first event and will not change in the event of moving up/down throughout the series.
We will have both solo and team GCs and done on a point based system. There will be no limit on team sizes (please make sure to share a link to your team on RGTdb so this can be logged for the events). However, you’re more than welcome to split up into sub-teams.
Your team’s category will be decided by the highest ranked member, so if anyone is a platinum or gold, then your team will be in that category, regardless of having silvers as well.
For teams, it will be the top 3 riders across the line that score points. If you wish to enter a team into the series, please contact Matt Looker with a link to your team profile on RGTdb.
We would like to encourage all riders to sign up to eBioPassport.com. This is a community led project committed to providing fair play for all by providing a platform to enable the virtual racing community to control their data and showcase proof of their legitimacy.
The race organizer might ask you to verify your data. Please do not take this as an offense but as a compliment on your performance.
Please make sure to select "public" in the privacy dropdown when you create power metrics/videos/equipment on your profile. You can create a verification request via: https://www.ebiopassport.com/verification_request_creation
If you know you are likely to average 5.00 w/kg, it is recommended that you provide at least a weigh-in and trainer calibration video filmed within 24 hours prior to the first stage. Dual recordings and data from outdoor rides can also be uploaded to eBioPassport and are especially welcome if you finish within the top 10 of a stage. We will seek to verify the top 3 in each stage, so do not be alarmed if you are contacted.
