The 2020 NEBRA Ranking Series presented by BikeReg

NEBRA Road logo

  We saw some great racing and exciting finishes last season and we are ready to do it again with some expanded categories for 2020! We’re excited to share another way you can battle it out with your friends on the road all season long.

Announcing the 2020 NEBRA Ranking!

For 2020 we continue with our combined road race and criterium rankings to find the best rider in New England. Just like last year, this is an exclusive for New England riders. The best 10 results that a racer achieves in 2020 will count towards their overall ranking. See how you stack up against New England racers! At the end of the season the top rider in each category will be presented with a champions jersey.

This year we will be introducing a new tiebreaker policy. In the event of a tie at the end of the season we will determine our champion by the highest placing in a Regional Road of Criterium Championship, and if necessary a State Road or Criterium Championship.

How do I score points?

  • Masters men fields will score points for any category that doesn’t have an “older” race they could be entered in – i.e. a 40+ field will count toward 40-44 and 45-49 if there is a 50+ race that the event.
  • If there is not a 50+ race, the 40+ race counts toward all masters rankings.
  • Women’s Masters 40-49 points are awarded in the P/1/2/3 race and are based on overall finish position. You get points based on your place against all racers (i.e 7th overall but top 40+ = 7th place points) but the ranking only includes 40+ racers.
  • Women’s Masters 50-59 and 60+ points are awarded in the 3/4/5 or 4/5 race and are based on overall finish position. You get points based on your place against all racers (i.e 7th overall but top 40+ = 7th place points) but the ranking only includes 50-59 or 60+racers.
  • Men’s category fields will score points toward the highest category in them – i.e. a P/1/2/3 counts toward the P/1/2 ranking and a 3/4 field counts toward the Cat 3 ranking.
  • Women’s category fields count toward all categories in them – i.e. a women’s P1/2/3 counts toward the cat 3 and P/1/2 ranking.
  • A masters field that doesn’t include cat 1 riders doesn’t count toward anything.
  • In men’s category races and men’s masters races, younger/lower category riders can take points away from older/higher category riders – points are awarded based on finish position only.  The age of the riders ahead of you doesn’t matter.
  • In women’s races, points are awarded based on finish position within your category.  So P/1/2 riders *cannot* take points from cat 3s – if the first cat 3 is 12th, that still gives 1st-place points toward the cat 3 rankings.
  • Points will be awarded based on three scales, depending on the number of starters in the race
    20 or less:
    20-12-8-5-2-1
    21-40:
    10 deep: 40-30-20-15-10-8-6-4-2-1
    41 or more:
    15 deep: 50-40-30-25-20-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2-1
