Rules:
1) As riders enter their first event of the series (regardless of whether a TT or RR) they are put into a grade (A,B,C or D) for the series – generally self-graded but race management can still reserve some say/can provide advice on the correct grade.
2) As the series progresses, riders can change grades if they want to but they don’t carry points over to their new grade.
3) There are 5 TT’s and 5 RR’s that will have points up for grabs.  The final 2-up TT will not have any points.  No points for riding 2-up option in the 5 TT’s.
4) Points available in each grade regardless of whether event is a TT or RR are:
1st ,  14
2nd ,  11
3rd .    9
4th .    7
5th .    6
6th .    5
7th .    4
8th .    3
9th .    2
10th .  1
5) At the end of the series there will be prizes for the top 3 riders in the road races for each grade based on points, and prizes for the top 3 riders in the time trials for each grade based on points.
6) Only riders’ top 4 results count towards the series points results for each grade in that particular discipline.  There is no minimum number of results needed.
7) In addition, there will be a prize for the fastest TT by a Male and fastest TT by a Female over the full series.
8) If DQ’d by race management then rider receives no points for that race.
9) Taking pace from another grade in the RR’s will be a DQ for that rider if it results in an unfair advantage over another rider.  Giving pace to another grade in the RR’s is strictly forbidden as it can disadvantage riders in that other grade.
10) If there is a tie in series points in a particular grade – the rider who obtained the more points than the other in their last race (that is one of those races contributing to that riders series points total) will see that rider take the higher placing.
