Rankings and Points update

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Here is a brief update on what is going on with rankings and points for course racing. We had a first 1 hour conference with ISAF today to sort out which events are still on, how the ranking is to be handled etc. We have another meeting tomorrow and a final conference call scheduled for Friday. The solution is supposed to address a transition from this years rankings before September 1st, rewarding all riders performances over the complete year 2012, towards the currently used point system which is compliant with ISAF grading. We will publish the final outcome as soon as possible and update the events section in the meantime to reflect the progress.

Beginning of next week all the points should be allocated correctly and the system finalized for the remainer of the year as well as for the upcoming season.
