Races are scored both individually and across the entire series. The amount of points you receive for crossing the finish line depends on your category, podium position, the number of participants in a race, and the competitive level of the participants.
How important is scoring?
If you are planning on racing for personal reasons, such as for fun, fitness, or personal challenge, you don’t need to worry about points.
If you are planning on racing fewer than 6 races this season, you also probably don’t need to worry about series points.
If you want to get on the podium and win prizes, you may want to worry about points. The lower your score is, the better your starting position will be.
If you want to earn a series jersey at the end of the season that proves you are a top racer in your category, you will want to think about points.
