National Cup Ranking

From 1 Jan 2020, a merit-based ranking system will be used to assist in determining seeding lists for Tier 1, Marquee, State and National Championships events registered in the National Cup Event Framework.

Seeding order will be calculated as follows:
  1. The defending format class National Champion;
  2. Recognised UCI World Champion in the format;
  3. Any rider ranked in the top 200 UCI World Rankings in ranking order*; 
  4. Riders ranked in the top 30 of the current National Cup Ranking;
  5. All other riders by entry sequence.
* the most recently published UCI Rankings need to be downloaded, updated and manually applied to the start lists.
A riders National Cup Ranking will be made up of their top 12-point scores from eligible National Cup events based on a rolling 52-week, cumulative system. National Cup points are dropped 52 weeks after being awarded.

In order to appear in the National Cup rankings, a rider only needs to race in one eligible National Cup event in the previous 52-week period and be a current MTBA financial member at the time of said event. 

It is the responsibility of riders to ensure that their MTBA memberships are up to date to ensure that any points they are awarded at National Cup events are added to their rankings.

When a rider changes age category (i.e from Under 15 to Under 17, Masters 3 to Masters 4), points earned in the riders previous age category will not be transferred into the riders new category with the exception of points earned at the previous years sanctioned MTBA National Championships. 

National Cup Rankings will be published on with rankings being updated on a fortnightly basis.
