2016 Season

-updated 30 Sep 2016

National Ranking for Road Cycling (points allocation)

The Singapore Cycling Federation (SCF) is pleased to announce the introduction of a Points System for Road events organised or sanctioned by SCF in 2016, as part of a strategic objective to enhance the vibrancy of the local events eco-system. Points acquired will count towards a National Ranking by the end of the local racing season.
The Points System and National Ranking is intended to achieve the following:

a. Increase opportunities for more winners and reasons to celebrate ;
b. Encourage participation in multiple events in any one local racing season ;
c. Complement SCF’s existing Athlete Selection Policy and thereby, ensure that the process of athlete selection for overseas competitions and Major Games remains robust and objective.

The Points System and National Ranking will undergo a review at the end of the 2016 season. A similar system will also be introduced for the other cycling disciplines in due course.
Individual Ranking

The individual rankings will be based on the following categories (Men’s Junior B and A*, Men’s and Women’s Open, Men’s Master*, Men’s Super-Masters*, Men’s and Women’s Sport)
Do note that are NO points shall be allocated for the Youth Category.
In the event where we have two, or more, riders vying for the same position with similar number of points, the eventual ranking will be based on the greatest number of 1st places on the ranking. Should a tie still occur, it will be based on the greatest number of 2nd places, then 3rd places, etc. Only places for which SCF ranking points are allocated will be taken into consideration.
In the event of a tie in the final ranking, the rider with the greatest number of 1st places on the ranking of races in the current year shall take precedence. If there is still a tie, it will be resolved by the greatest number of 2nd places, then 3rd places etc, whatever the rider’s placing.
*Notes: Men’s Junior A (17 – 18 years), Junior B (13 – 16 years), Youth (12 years and below), Men’s Masters (35 – 44 years), Men’s Super-Masters (45 and above).
Age is determined by the present year minus the year of birth of the competitor (i.e. 2016 minus 1999 is 17 years).

Team Ranking

The team rankings shall be obtained by adding together the points of their 4 best placed riders in the individual rankings in the current year.
Ties between teams shall be resolved by counting up the greatest number of 1st places, 2nd places etc. This will be based on events organised/sanctioned by SCF in the current year and obtained by the team’s 4 best riders on the individual rankings.
Prizes

At the end of the season, SCF shall award prizes to the winners of the individual & team rankings. In
addition, the SCF may award prizes to riders according to their classification and may award a Points
Leader’s jersey to both leaders of the individual and team classifications. Details of the prize
presentation award ceremony will be communicated by SCF to all winners after the final event.

Points scale

Points awarded for each race will be communicated along with the full results at the end of each
race.

Speedway Championships

In the event that a rider participates in both the Club and SEA championships, only the higher points
achieved from either Club or SEA championships (not both points) would be used when tabulating
overall individual Points.

In the event that a rider has gathered points in multiple age categories (i.e. Men’s Open and Men’s
Super-Masters) during the first 3 events of the season, any points won during the Speedway
championships would be added to only one category of the rider’s choice.

OCBC Cycle Speedway Championships (SEAsian and Club categories)
There are 2 categories within the OCBC Cycle Speedway Championship.

a. The Club Championship where by registration is on a first come first serve basis. The
National rankings of the riders, based on the records of SCF, will have a bearing on the final
selection into the Club Championship. The decision of the OCBC Cycle Speedway
Championship Organising Committee (OCBC Bank/PICH event Management Company) will
be final.

b. The SEA Championship, this event is by invitation only to all SEA National Federations.
For both the SEA and Club Championship events, the top 6 teams will qualify points for each individual rider (i.e. for 1st placed team, 13 points each for all riders in the same team, including reserve rider).
