SCORING AND GAMEPLAY

When a stage is complete, the riders will be scored according to how well they performed.
The scoring criteria change from competition to competition, and sometimes from stage to stage. To find out specific scoring information for a particular stage, click on Stages in the menu and click on a stage to see its information. You can also click on the scoring info link in the stage information at the top of the game's home page.

SCORING INFORMATION

These are the things that can be scored. Not all competitions will be scored on all criteria.

  • A top 20 finish in a stage (or top 10 in a team time trial):
    • 35, 30, 25, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the first 20 riders across the line in a multi-stage race;
    • 50, 40, 30, 25, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the first 20 riders across the line in a one-day race;
    • 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 points for each participating member of the top ten teams in a team time trial;
  • Wearing a jersey in one of the grand tours
    • 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the top ten in the general classification
    • 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the top five in the points competition
    • 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the top five in the sprints competition
    • 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the top five in the mountains competition
    • 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for the top five in the young rider competition
  • Being in a breakaway
    • 10 points for each rider in a breakaway of ten riders or less that's more than one minute ahead of the peloton at the halfway stage in a race. This is usually for one day races where no mountain or sprint points are scored.
  • Scoring mountains points in a stage
    • Varies from competition to competition. Default is that the maximum points available on a climb is the same as the number of scoring riders. So if five riders score, the points available in the game are 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 for the first five riders
  • Scoring intermediate sprint points in a stage
    • Varies from competition to competition. Default is 6, 4, 2 points for the first three riders in each intermediate sprint
  • Being in the same team as the stage winner (or the same nationality if it's national squads)
    • 5 points for each participating rider from the same team
  • Getting a combativity award
    • 10 points for a stage combativity award
  • Rolling in dead last on a stage
    • 10 points for last place on a stage (note: this is last on the day, not last overall in a tour)

Scoring criteria for each competition will be posted in the run-up to each competition, and they will be available on each stage description page in the Stages list. Once a competition has started the scoring criteria will not be changed for any stage within the competition (E&OE).

During a Competition, retired riders will be removed as soon as we know they're out of the race. They'll be greyed out in the game. If a rider you've picked is removed, and you've elected to receive emails about roster changes, we'll email you to let you know.

DISQUALIFIED RIDERS

If a rider is disqualified or suspended then they won't score any points for the stage in which they were disqualified. Their other points from other stages will remain in the game.
