PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE TWO RACES ON MAY 4 – WHICH ONE YOUR CHILD SHOULD RACE IN IS AGE-DEPENDENT
For the thirteenth year, the NCNCA is promoting a junior point series for boys and girls, ages 10-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18. There will be a perpetual trophy awarded to the top boy and girl in each age category, as well as other prizes to the top five in each category. The awards ceremony will be held at the final race of the series, after the junior races. Last year the prizes included cool swag as well as cash.
For the 10-12 age groups, the best 9/10. 13-14 age groups, the best 10/11 races will count towards the final tally. For the 15-16 and 17-18 age groups the best 9/10 will count. Please take careful note of the calendar as several races/dates have been changed from previous years.
Scoring system and reminders:
Riders will be eligible for awards in their own age group.
Riders are strongly encouraged to pre-register for the point series races. With over 200 licensed junior racers in the NCNCA, several of the combined 15-18 fields are expected to be full.
The results posted by the officials at each race are considered final. Riders are encouraged to check preliminary results at each race within the allotted timeframe and reconcile any disputes with the officials before they become finalized. For races that only have one category: i.e.: Land Park, the NCNCA point’s person will separate out the age groups after the results are final.
For 15-16 and 17-18 categories, points will be awarded as follows: 1st-20, 2nd-17, 3rd-15, 4th-13, 5th-11, 6th-9, 7th-7, 8th-5, 9th-3, 10th-2, 1 point for all other starters. Riders must race a minimum of four series races to qualify for awards in the final standings.
For girls 10-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18 and boys 10-12, 13-14 categories, points will be awarded as follows: 1st-10, 2nd-8, 3rd-6, 4th-4, 5th-2, 1 point for all other starters. Riders must race a minimum of four races to qualify for awards in the final standings.
Any tied rankings in the final standings will be broken by total # of wins in the five (for 10-12) or six (for 13-14 ) or seven (for 15-18s) qualifying races each rider uses for the final series points. If still tied, then the most number of 2nd places would break the tie, then if still tied most number of third places, etc. If all placings are exactly the same among tied riders then the tie will be broken by the results in the series' final race.
