Results Based Upgrades:

  • The list of riders who must upgrade for 2012 can be downloaded here: 2012 CCORS Mandatory Upgrade List
  • The goal of this is to encourage fair competition in all classes.  If you feel your upgrade requirement is unfair please contact Ryan Danell or Kieran Finney ("Contact Us" link to the left) and we will consider your case.
  • Note: if you do not podium for any individual race this year you may downgrade next year.
 
Team Competition:
  • Any 5-8 riders can make up a team.

  • Series podiums
    • In order to place on the series podium a rider must enter at least 4 races in a given category (you do not need to finish 4 races, i.e. you can DNF and still place, although this is unlikely).
    • Best 4 finishes (plus any bonus points) are used to calculate overall series points.
    • Overall ties will be resolved based on next best place in 5th race and then (as necessary) by head-to-head race placings.
    • Any class that does not have at least 3 riders competing in at least 4 races may be determined ineligible for overall series prizes.
