Returning for 2018, the Tour of Andover.

This year is slightly different with just one segment each month: a climb, a rolling road or a sprint.

Segment efforts for each stage are automatically ranked by elapsed time and shown in a leaderboard.

Point scoring

Overall leaderboards are created for the General Classification (GC), King and Queen of the Mountain (KOM/QOM), and Sprint competitions.

An athlete’s position in the stage leaderboard at the end of the stage contributes to their overall point scoring. For each stage there are GC points as follows; 1st = 15, 2nd = 12, 3rd = 10, 4th = 8, 5th = 6, 6th= 5, 7th= 4, 8th = 3, 9th = 2, 10th = 1, Mountain stages also get points for the KOM/QOM leaderboard as follows; 1st = 10, 2nd = 8th, 3rd = 6, 4th = 4, 5th = 2, Rolling stages get points for the KOM/QOM and Sprint leaderboards as follows; 1st = 5, 2nd = 4, 3rd = 3, 4th = 2, 5th = 1, Flat stages get points for the Sprint leaderboard as follows; 1st = 10, 2nd = 8, 3rd = 6, 4th = 4, 5th = 2,

The overall winner (male and female) is determined by whoever accumulates the most points by the end of the challenge.

Spread the word! Good luck, stay safe and have fun.
