Washington Cup Rd 3 Scoring
The 3rd and final round of the 2011 Washington Cup is the Ronde Ohop Sunday August 21st, 2011.
Scoring at the Ronde Ohop will differ from the previous two rounds in two ways:
• Double points will be awarded based on placing in each official race.
• While there are only four official races, points will be available for each of the Washington Cup categories. This will be accomplished by each race will have designated categories that riders can assign their points to that align to the previous rounds.
The official races and assignment options are as follows:
Masters 30+: points available for Masters 30+ 1/2/3 and Masters 40+ 4/5
Womens: points available for Womens 1/2/3 and Womens 4
Cat 4/5 and Masters 50+: points available for Mens 4/5 and Masters 50+
Mens 1/2/3: points available for Mens 1/2 and Mens 3
For example: Jeff Reed is racing the Masters 30+ in support of Sean Phillips* . Andy Salmon is also racing the race. Mike H and Sean Phillips have attacked with Ross Gilbert leaving Andy Salmon and Jeff to fight out 4th and 5th place. Jeff’s disarming smile lulls Andy Salmon into a false sense of complacency and Jeff easily takes 4th with an electric sprint. Andy Salmon gets 5th. Jeff gets 60 points for 4th. These are applied to the Masters 40+ 4/5 Washington Cup. Salmon is a Cat 3 so he gets 52 points for the 30+ 1/2/3 Washington Cup.
Points for the Masters 4/5 and Masters 50+ field will be assigned based on registration.
