Troy Scoring Details

MEN

TROY points are awarded in category 1/2 races. Only category 1/2 men are eligible for points.

WOMEN

TROY points will be awarded in the 1/2/3 field. Only category 1/2/3 women are eligible for points.

SCORING

  • Only individual and Madison races completed during Thursday Night Lights count toward TROY. No TROY points for timed events, match sprint, or other events.
  • Racers must score points over a minimum of FOUR TNL race nights to be included in the final yearly standings.
  • A maximum of 5 finishers per race earn TROY points. The number of points awarded is dependent on field size. See table below.
  • Field size will be determined by the number of racers on the start list
  • TROY points accrue from each rider’s 20 best finishes over the season.  After 20 races, a higher score from later in the season will replace a lower score from earlier in the season.
  • In the event of a tie for first place, the following algorithm will be used to break a tie.
    • Greater number of 1st places
    • Total points earned in state scratch, keirin and points races.
    • Greater number of scoring nights.
