The overall winner of the HSBC UK | Grand Prix Series will be the rider who has accumulated the highest number of points across the series. The highest placed under-23 rider in the final overall standings will be declared the under-23 series champion.

In the event of a points tie, the individual winner will be decided based on countback of the number of first places achieved, then the number of second places achieved and so on.

The series leader will wear a leader’s jersey.

Team classification

The Leicester Castle Classic returns in the HSBC UK Grand Prix Series

Team classification for each race will be calculated based on the sum total of the finishing positions for the first three riders of each team. Points will be awarded in line with the individual standings. For example, a team with riders finishing first (30 points), sixth (20 points) and seventh (18 points) will have a total of 68 points for that race. Team classification points will only be awarded to riders in the top 20 positions.

For stage races, team classification points will be awarded according to the overall individual classification following the final stage.

The team that has accumulated the most points at the end of the series will win the overall HSBC UK | Grand Prix Series team classification.

In the event of a points tie, the team winner will be decided based on countback of the number of first places achieved by riders in the team then the number of second places achieved and so on.
