EVENT FORMAT AND CONCEPT
At MyWhoosh, we value the feedback and suggestions of our riders. Based on your valuable input, we have created the Tune-Up Tuesday Points Race series, a shorter and more fun version of our other races like Sunday Race Club. This race series is all about highlighting your speed and agility as you compete for the fastest segment times, all while aiming for a top finish position. Tune-Up Tuesday strikes the perfect balance between competition and enjoyment, making it an event you will not want to miss.
Tune Up-Tuesday will feature thrilling stages, ranging from approximately 15km to 20km in length. These stages will be carefully crafted to provide a mix of challenges, including flat and fast segments, short and steep sections, and even thrilling climbs. Points will be awarded based on the fastest times through the segments, allowing you to choose your strategy. Will you go all out for the overall finish position, or will you focus on sprinting through the segments? The choice is yours, and the excitement is guaranteed.
There will be no categories, and women and men will race together for the Tune-Up Tuesday races.
The series will be points-based, with mid-route segments and finish positions contributing to the overall point tally. This tally will define the placing of the riders. This scoring system ensures that every rider has the opportunity to achieve a result, regardless of their speed or position. We aim to create an inclusive and level playing field where riders of all abilities can participate and enjoy the thrill of competition.
All segments will have the same points. Also, the finish line positions for all three stages will carry the same points. Below are the points split:
NOTE: If a user joins one stage at one timeslot, he or she has to join the rest of the stages on the same timeslot to qualify for the monthly leaderboard, for example, if you join Stage 1 at 9 am GMT, you have to join Stage 2 at 9 am GMT to ensure you qualify for the overall leaderboard
