Category updates for the series
All riders (the Overall) - This will include all riders participating in the Wheel Wizard Downhill Series. In this category the overall series championship will be determined and will be based on all 4 races (no option to discard race)
Seated riders - This category will automatically eliminate a list of top riders determined from the 2017 series. These top riders will only be able to compete in the DH1 category. (A list of riders will follow soon). This category will have the one to discard system when determining the DH2 2018 championship.
This Category has been formed for new and beginner riders. Riders with just one race under their belt from 2017 series may also ride under this category. This category will also have the one to discard system when determining the DH3 2018 championship.
CATEGORY CHANGES DURING THE SERIES
During any event any rider with a race run within 2% of the winning run from upper category will be moved up to the respective category. (example: If a DH3 rider with a race run time within 2% of the DH2 category winner will be moved to DH2). This rule will apply for the first 3 races of the series and will apply retrospectively for all races. Decisions for any changes will be carried out at the discretion of the DH committee and not an automated system.
This year riders will have the opportunity to team up and register them self as a team BEFORE series opening race. Each team must be made up of two riders per team. Teammates can`t be changed or swapped during the series.
