  1. All races count toward the series (no drops), except Men's 4/5 and 4/5 40+: First 4 races started ONLY count for series.
  2. For age-graded races, events that host classes that do not match with the above categories offered will be handled in the following manner:
    • 40+ points will be assigned from eligible riders in the 35+ field
    • 50+ points will be assigned from eligible riders in the 45+ field
    • 60+ points will be assigned from eligible riders in the 55+ field
    • Juniors 9-14 will be separated out by boys/girls and racing age and assigned points in their respective age groups.
    • If a race does not hold either a Junior Girls 15-18 or a Masters Women category, the assigned points will come from eligible riders in the women's 3/4 or 3/4/5 field (whichever is offered).
    • Reference the following matrix to determine which BAR fields get points in which event field.
  3. For any events in the BAR schedule that do not have a category in their field, any riders with points in the overall standings will receive start points, no matter what category/class is participated in. Reference the following matrix to see which BAR fields only get start points.
  4. Any racers that are waitlisted will receive start points for their field only if they appear at registration during the wait-list callup and there are no longer spots available.
  5. Events that are part of the series will be broken down into 2 Tiers:
    • Tier 1 is for events that had a minimum of 300 starters in the previous year, and have been conducted for at least 3 consecutive years.
    • Tier 2 is for events that are new to the schedule, or have had a minimum of 175 riders in the previous year.
    • If Tier 2 events attain the conditions for a Tier 1 event, they can qualify to move up for the next year. Final decisions on the tier status of events in the series will be made by the Series Organizer.
    • Events on the UCI, USAC ProCX, and USAC CXNC calendars are ineligible for the NE Cyclocross BAR series.
  6. The Points available shall be as follows:
