Belgian Road Cycling Cup

The Belgian Road Cycling Cup (also known as Bingoal Cycling Cup after its sponsor) is a road bicycle racing competition established in 2016 and consists of a number of standalone one-day races in Belgium. In each race, the top 15 riders score points and the rider scoring the most points in total is crowned the Belgian Cycling Cup champion. A separate classification is kept for the best team.

Points distributionEdit

For the individual rankings, points are awarded to all eligible riders each race according to the following table:

Points distribution
Position 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
Points 16 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Additionally, during each race there are three intermediate sprints for which the top three riders receive three, two and one point respectively.

Until 2018, the positions of the first three riders of each team were added together to give the team position with only riders finishing in the top 50 taken into account. The team with the lowest team position was the winner of the team competition for that race. E.g.: a team having their first three riders all on the podium will have a team position score of 1+2+3=6 and since no other team will have a lower team position, this team won 12 points for the team standings. Note that first all teams with three (or more) riders finishing in the top 50 were ranked, then the teams with only two riders, then teams with only one rider. Finally, each race the team of the winning rider received two bonus points.
