Ranking comments and conclusions08.Jan.2005



Here are some logical conclusions I have drawn from the rules.

1. The world ranking is not only showing who is the fastest. It also weighs in attendance. A minimum of 4 competitions with 2 good discipline results is needed to maximize your ranking point. The more you travel around on these high level competitions the more you increase the likeliness to get good points.

2. A racer can choose to compete in any class as long as they are authorized to race that class. Younger can always go up in class. Women/Girls can always race with Men/Boys. Going up in class is tougher but the points are also higher.

3. The minimum to do for a top pro racer to be able to get maximum points for a season is to enter 1 Major and 3 Main competitions and win 2 of the standard disciplines in each of these competitions.

4. For Women and Am it is 1 Major and 2 Main competitions.

5. Even if you have managed to do very well during these minimum conditions it is still in your interest to compete in the second Major and other Main/Prime competitions. Even if not managing to get better points for yourself you may stop your opponents from improving theirs.

6. You may get a good point with minimum travel to 4(3) competitions but the more you travel around on competitions the more you increase your chances of getting a higher ranking point for that year.

7. It’s very important for your ranking placement to do at least 4(3) competitions with 2 disciplines per year. After that you only exchange lower placement points with higher ones.

8. If a racer has competed in both the 2 Majors during a season the second best Major will be counted as a Main competition (I.e. with Main points).

9. Women/Girls may always enter Men/Boys classes. In the Men/Boys class they will be counted as Men/Boys. But they will also be counted into corresponding Woman/Girl class. Result 3 and 6 for same age girls in Men/Boys class will count as 1 and 2 in corresponding Women/Girls class.

10. Those females who also enter male classes will have their names in both female and male rankings.

11. Those juniors/legends who also enters normal senior classes can have their name two times in some rankings. One counted as a senior and the other as junior/legend.

12. Those female juniors/legends who also enters normal male senior classes can have their name two times in different rankings. Two in male rankings and two in female rankings. One counted as senior and the other as junior/legend.

13. A racer may enter several classes as long as they are authorized for that class and the competition format allows it.

Example 1: A junior may enter the junior and the Am class. This means he will have two results and two different ISSA ranking points. The best ranking point goes into the main ranking. The junior class point goes into the junior ranking.

Example 2: A junior may enter the –14 and the –17 class. This means he will have two results and two different ISSA ranking points. The best ranking point goes into the main ranking. The best junior class point goes into the junior ranking.

Example 3: A woman may enter male Am class. This means she will have one result but two different ISSA ranking points. The ranking point for the male Am class will be counted normally into the mail Main ranking. If she is the best woman she will also get the top Am ranking point for the female Main ranking.

Example 4: A junior girl may enter male Am class. This means she will have one result but three different ISSA ranking points. The ranking point for the male Am class will be counted normally into the mail Main ranking. If she is the second best woman she will also get the second top Am ranking point for the female Main ranking. If she is the best junior girl she will also get the top junior ranking point for the female junior ranking.

Example 5: A junior girl may enter male Am class and junior girl class. This means she will have two results but three different ISSA ranking points. The ranking point for the male Am class will be counted normally into the mail Main ranking. If she is the second best woman she will also get the second top Am ranking point for the female Main ranking. If she is third in the junior girl class she will also get the third top junior girl ranking point for the female junior ranking.
