2010 Rusty Potts U19 Cup

Postby B.L. » Sun Feb 21, 2010 11:23 pm

Attention all NJ Juniors!

The schedule for the 2010 Rusty Potts U19 Cup is attached.



Age groups in the Rusty Potts Cup are:


Men
10-12, 13-14, 15-16
Women
10-14, 15-18



All categories are eligible (Cats 1-5).

Riders must be licensed and belong to an NJBA club, before the last event in the
competition.


There are 16 races on the schedule for 2010.



The following change is being made to the rules for 2010.




Points will be awarded for each age group as follows:

1st place = 5 points

2nd place = 4 points

3rd place = 3 points

4th place = 2 points

all other finishers will be awarded 1 point

DNF or DNS = 0 points



Note: The NJ U19 Road Championship which is combined with the PA U19 Road
Championships at Oley Valley (aug 15th), will be scored slightly differently...

Points will be awarded based on NJ riders only (meaning that the 1st New Jersey
rider will score 5 pts, the 2nd NJ rider will score 4 pts, etc... )



These changes have been made with these considerations:


To keep the competition level as high as possible.
To encourage junior participation in as many cup events as possible.
Taking into account the small fields in some junior age categories.
To lessen the impact of missing a single race.
Considering the number of events in the U19 Cup.


(fyi: Applying this scoring method in 2009 would not have changed any podium
positions, but would have kept the competition much closer, with much less of a
point spread)



Information about the Cup, rules & scoring for 2010 will be updated on the NJBA
Website soon. www.NJBikeRacing.com


We are looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and lots of new riders at
all the junior races this year.

The season starter will be the Sandy Hook TT on April 3rd !!
