[RC] Points in rides with small number of starters - Michael Maul

One post asked about what happens in rides with a small number of starters.

The AERC rules at


have a points table in 8.5.5 for 11 or more senior starters. The rules go on to say:

Bonus points are still available even with less than 11 senior starters but they are reduced with every rider less than 11. There is a chart on p. 27 in Appendix A of the rules that gives the points and bonus for every starting number less than 11. Where there are fewer than eleven Senior starters, (all weight divisions added together), all bonus points,
(overall and weight division), are reduced by the following methods. Junior starters for a ride shall not be counted in the overall count for starters. Bonus points that would have been earned by the
place equal to the total number of Senior starters are
subtracted from every finisher’s points.

This means in a 50 mile ride where the winner would get 150 points if they won with 11+ starters - this would be gradually reduced as the number of senior starters decreased until with just one starter - the "winner" would get only 50 points. In the case of a 100 mile ride - the points for a winner with 11+ starters is 450 and would be reduced to 150 if there were only one starter and finisher. There are still bonus points for the 100 mile distance even with only one starter.
