SCORING

WE HAVE A TON OF RACES ON OUR SCHEDULE CAUSE WE LOVE RACIN. FROM XC TO ENDURANCE, WE OFFER UP AN ADVENTURE FOR ALL. YOU WILL CHOOSE EITHER AN XC OR XCAT (ENDURANCE) CATEGORY TO COMPETE. BUT WE PUT A TWIST ON THINGS TO KEEP IT INTERESTING.

THERE ARE TWO COMPONENTS, RACING & PAYDIRT, THAT WILL DETERMINE YOUR OVERALL CATEGORY PLACEMENT.

1. BEST OF SEVEN RACES
THE VIRGINIA OFF ROAD SERIES RANKS ATHLETES ON THEIR BEST OF SEVEN RACE SCORES. AFTER YOUR 7TH RACE, YOUR LOWEST SCORE WILL BE DROPPED.... BUT WE HAVE A WAY TO EARN EXTRA CREDIT:
BONUS:
  • FOR XC ATHLETES, TWO OF YOUR BEST NON-XC RACES (CHECK SCHEDULE FOR WHETHER RACE IS XC OR NON-XC) WILL REPLACE YOUR LOWEST TWO BEST OF SEVEN SCORES.
  • FOR NON-XC/ XCAT (ENDURANCE) ATHLETES, TWO OF YOUR BEST XC RACES (CHECK SCHEDULE FOR WHETHER RACE IS XC OR NON-XC) WILL REPLACE YOUR LOWEST TWO BEST OF SEVEN SCORES.
EARNING POINTS
  • TOP 15 places in each overall combined category based on Point Scale(see below)
  • 16 AND BEYOND PLACEMENTS EARN 5 POINTS EA
  • DNF = 1 POINT
  • DNS = 0 POINTS
  • POINT SCALE BELOW
2. PayDirt Points: 
PayDirt Points will be added to your overall score once you have completed your first VORS Race. (SEE PAYDIRT TO EARN POINTS & REWARDS)
CATEGORY CHANGES: Full PayDirt Points will transfer with any category change.


OVERALL VIRGINIA OFF ROAD SERIES RACE SCORE:
BEST 7 RACE POINTS + PAYDIRT POINTS = OVERALL POINTS FOR RANKING

TIE BREAKERS
END OF SEASON TIE BREAK WILL BE DETERMINED BY:
  • MOST RACES
  • WHO PLACED HIGHEST IN LAST RACE
  • LAST RACER TO COMPETE
DUAL CATEGORY COMPETITION
ATHLETES MAY COMPETE IN TWO CATEGORIES BUT MOST CONTACT US OR ENTER TWO SEPARATE REGISTRATIONS AND INFORM US OF WHICH TWO CATEGORIES YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE

RACING OUT OF CATEGORY
+If a competitor races out of their chosen XC category in a XC Race, no points will be earned. (See XCAT for exemption). This does not apply for Timed/Endurance Races.
+DUAL CATEGORY. USE THIS CONTACT FORM TO INFO US THAT YOU WISH TO COMPETE IN TWO CATEGORYES


Clarification on 2 Race Bonus: XCAT's may receive points from racing in XC Cat and XC may receive points for scoring in Endurance/Time-based(XCAT) races. A crossover from XC & XCAT.

ENDURANCE: 
Points will be earned based on Overall Categories created below under Category Scoring..

Individual TEAM MEMBER Scoring Clarifaction :
