XCO: LIMPOPO PROVINCE COLOUR CRITERIA:
January 1, 2019
In order to qualify for colours the Championship is compulsory, in addition to having competed and earned points in three or more events in the series. If there are 5 events in the series you need to complete in 3+Championship = 4 of the 5; If there are 4 events in the series you need to complete in 2+Championship = 3 of the 4. If there are only 3 events in the series you need to complete ALL of them! (The more races you do the more points you will earn)
The point system:
If riders have the same points on the final series log, then the result of the last race of the series will determine which rider will receive colours.
For regional colours we apply the UCI MTB points system to each race
A win receives 200, and then it goes down on a sliding scale 170, 150, 135, 125, 120, 115, 110, 105, 100, 96, 92, 88, 84, 80, 76, 72, 68, 64, 60
Please note the following:
No individual can qualify for regional colours without a Cycling South Africa (CSA) license. Juniors and Elites are required to have domestic racing licenses. Any rider who wishes to be illegible for colours will be required to register with SA Cyling. For more information visit
Should any objection be raised as to the inclusion of a rider not included during an evaluation of the parameters above, the final decision by exception rests with the Limpopo Committee Members.
