5. STARTING ORDER
Starting lists will be compiled separately for Race, Hobby, E-Enduro, Newbie, Rookie and Grom competitions based on the running order in the entire T-Mobile Czech Enduro Series from pre-registered competitors.
The system itself will rank the registered racers according to their average score, and then assign starting numbers to the racers. The average score will be regularly updated on www.enduroserie.cz in the racer's profile. The average score is based on the points table for the absolute ranking.
a) Calculation at the first start of the competitor in 2023
In the first race for which a competitor enters, the competitor's average score from the 3 best races he/she has completed in 2022 will be calculated. In case he/she has completed 2 races, the average score from 2 races. In case of one race ridden, the result from one race.
b) calculation after the 1st race in 2023
1 race ridden = average points gained in 2022 + points gained from the 1st race in 2023 divided by 2 (hereafter / 2)
2 races run = average points profit 2022 + points profit from race 1 + points profit from race 2 / 3
more than 2 races completed = the system selects the highest 3 point gains / 3 from the 2023 races completed and the 2022 average points gain
c) if the competitor has not ridden any races in 2022
1 race ridden = points gain from 1 race / 1
2 races ridden = points gain from 1 race + points gain from 2nd race / 2
more than 2 races ridden = best 3 point gains in 2022 / 3
Competitors start in order of highest to lowest starting number. Specific start times will be posted on the website by 8:00 pm each Saturday. In the event that the leading competitor in the running order is not present at the start, start number one will not be assigned.
