2019 BC Cup XCO Standings (updated June 12, 2019)

Series Structure

The XCO BC Cup Series consists of a series of races featuring some of BC’s top cross-country mountain bike events.

Points are calculated from the results of each race and then riders are ranked in the series standings. Riders must complete 3 out of 5 races to be eligible for an overall ranking. 4 out of 5 races will count towards total series points, therefore, riders who compete in all 5 races will be able to “drop” their lowest results.

Points for each race will be awarded to the top 75 finishers as per previous years points table for top 75 places ranging from 200 points – 1 point.

In the case of a tie, the number of events completed will be considered. If still tied, the number of 1st place finishes will be considered. If still tied, the result of the most recent event will be considered.

Each rider must ensure they have read and understood the Mountain Bike UCI rules listed here.
