Scoring for the World Ranking 2007
The scoring method will be similar to that used in 2006 except that points scored at any event will stand for 1 calendar year: the total of the 7 best scores during the past 12 month period will count for the ranking. Only WOC and EOC results will stand until they will be replaced through the new results of these events of the season.
In any case we have always an actual World Ranking we can use for red group at WOC and EOC.
The scores according to placing in events will depend on the event.
There are three levels of scores:
(1) For WOC and EOC the first 40 competitors will score points as follows:
60, 54, 49, 45, 42, 39, 37, 35, 33, 31, 30, 29, .., 1.
(2) For WR events where at least 3 of the top 10 of latest available World Ranking are competing (separately for women and men). The first 30 competitors score points as follows:
50, 44, 39, 36, 33, 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 19, 18, .., 1.
(3) For all other WR events the first 25 competitors score points as follows:
40, 36, 32, 29, 27, 25, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, 14, 13, .., 1.
Results are always updated after a weekend with World Ranking Events. Old results from the year before drop out after new race weekends and not exactly after 1 year.
