All riders are automatically included in the Northwest Epic Series standings.
Series standings are based on the following categories:
–Jr Women (17 and under)*

–Stottlemeyer 30 miles

You don't have to race at only the longest distance: all points you earn in an eligible category will be added to your total.
At each race, each category winner receives 100 points. Everyone else in a category receives points according to the following formula: Winner's Time divided by Your Time times 100.

–In case of a tie, 4th race breaks tie (5th if still a tie)
–In case there is still a tie, overall combined distances of all races breaks tie
–The first place rider in each category receives a free entry into a Northwest Epic Series event next year

–In the open men and open women categories, there will also be cash prizes. The 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place rider in these two categories will each receive $200, $100 and $50 respectively. If there are fewer than 10 participants in a series category, cash prizes will be as follows: 1st place–$100, 2nd place–$50, 3rd place–$25.
