The Cyclo-Cross National Trophy is Britain’s premier cyclo-cross series, which runs from October to January.
It consists of six rounds of racing at venues throughout Britain.
The series attracts top riders from Britain and further afield in all categories from under 14 to veteran 60-plus.
How does the scoring work?
At each round there are separate races for the various categories and riders from all categories are awarded points based on their finishing position.
What are the leaders jerseys?
After each race comes the podium presentation when medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each category and the overall leader’s jersey is awarded to the rider with the greatest cumulative points total.
The colour of the leader’s jersey differs from category to category, to avoid confusion in races where categories are mixed (e.g. senior men and under-23 men race together).
Yellow: youth under 16 boys, youth under 16 girls, junior men, veteran men 40-49, veteran women, senior/elite men and senior/elite women.
Green: Youth under 14 boys, youth under 14 girls, under-23 men, under-23 women, veteran men 50-59 and veteran women 50-59.
Blue: Junior women, veteran men 60+ and veteran women 60+.
How is the series winner decided?
The best five out of six events in the series will count towards the overall points result.
In the event of a tie on points, the higher position is awarded to the rider with the highest finishing position in the final round.
If neither rider contests the final round, then the tiebreak is applied to the penultimate round, then the round before that, and so on.
