Starting numbers are assigned for the entire season when registering competitors (first ones get to pick their number; numbers are not changed mid-season). The numbers are issued based on the approved Baltic number table. The starting numbers for solo bikes and individual quad bikes must not coincide regardless of the competition class. The assigned numbers and registered competitors are published on http://www.piksepini.ee.
Points are calculated based on competition classes: 1st – 100p; 2nd – 90p; 3rd – 85p; 4th – 82p; 5th – 81p; etc.
A competitor must cross the finish line at least once per stage to be awarded points.
The overall winner of the series is determined based on the total number of points for five out of six races. A double number of points is awarded at the last stage – points will be awarded for both sprints. When a competitor has participated in all stages, the points for the least successful (or skipped) stage are deducted.
Results will be available on http://piksepini.ee/tulemused.
