Women’s national road race rankings
The women’s rankings will be updated after the Peaks 2 Day on 19-20 March, the first women’s National B road race of 2022.
How it works
The British Continental national road race rankings take results from National A and National B road races in the UK in 2022. Note the emphasis on road racing; results from circuit races and criteriums won’t count. And neither will points from Regional or UCI road races. The focus is deliberately narrow; we want to understand who has been performing in national-level road races in the UK across the season. And keeping it focused makes it easier for us to manage and update here at British Conti HQ.
Like any rankings system, this isn’t perfect. We aren’t pretending it will be a completely objective measure of road racing performance or ability. But we do hope it injects a bit of fun and helps create a bit of interest in national-level road racing this season, particularly at National B level.
The scoring system is very similar to the one used by British Cycling, with riders in the top 20 of races qualifying for points, with points also being awarded to stage winners.
