Men Category 5 riders are not included in points competitions. We would like for this entry level group to be fair and enjoyable for all the new racers in our sport. We believe this improvement will motivate riders to upgrade to cat 4 as soon as they complete 10 mass start events or the officials may deem the upgrade appropriate.
 
Tie Breakers: In the event of a tie in any of the above listed competitions, we will go to the most 1st places then 2nd places and so on until the tie is broken. 
 
Time Trial events will use the Merckx Advantage for scoring and placings. This exciting new way of scoring time trials has been used by Topview Sports with great success in other states and has created renewed excitement for this segment of our sport.  The Merckx Advantage will use the following criteria: As a general rule, riders electing "Merckx" will receive a 30,45, or 60 second time deduction from their actual race time. This "adjusted" time will be used for the weekend scoring and Bill Bone Points Series only. When the results are submitted to USACycling the "actual" race times will be used. 
When beginning a TT you must declare yourself as "AERO" or "Merckx" to the Topview Staffer in the TT staging area. 
In order to qualify as "Merckx" you may not use any of the following(event one of the below items will switch you to "Aero"):
Disc Wheel
Aero Wheels greater than 51mm Deep
Aero Helmets
Shoe Covers
Aero Bars

Allowed items are: Aero Road Helmet(no teardrop shape), Skinsuits
 
 
 

EVENT PRIZES & AWARDS:  Please refer to each Event’s Flyers for details.

RESULTS:   The official Event Results and Series Championship Points will be tabulated and hosted on FloridaCycling.com
