XCM Series rankings are up.

Not sure how they calculate points, but i like it.

Yep - the points scoring does seem a little bit odd.
I think it rewards sandbaggers like you Tate Eye-wink
I have done you in Cap Pun and also DW yet you still get me overall. WTF!

Its done on position within catagory, which to be honest it pretty fair. I like that women can be right up there too.
Remember, its best 3 from the series, and there are many rumours flying around about the Angry Doc replacement.

But well done - you are really in with a shot overall for the series if you play it carefully.

There is always Husky - maybe its time for you to race elite there? Smiling

Maybe two of the scoring factors are hair colour and nationality! HaHaHa!
Nah just jokes, im sure they would'nt do that.....

My second MTB race and first 100km'er was DW2010. Elite next year for sure, but I think its fair to get on a couple of podiums before moving up.
Sandbagging would be to race and be competitive in elite last year, yet race CP and DW in opens/vets this year.
