Rules & Regulations

There shall be a maximum of 9 events in the British Womens Team Cup. Each Team’s 8 highest scoring events will combine to make the Teams final total, allowing the lowest scoring event to be discounted.

All teams are requested to register with the British Womens Team Cup co-ordinator Jon Miles (jon.miles2017@gmail.com) before 1 March each year. All teams shall pay  a registration fee of £30 by bank transfer and email the completed registration form to Jon Miles

Riders may change teams at any time during the year, but any points they have gained will stay with the team they have won them for. A newly named team can enter the British Womens Team Cup at any time, subject to paying their registration fee to Jon Miles

Team’s can field a maximum number of 6 riders in each event. The first 4 riders in each team will count for British Womens Team Cup points

Where teams wish to enter more than 6 riders in a race then they can enter 2 teams of 4 riders (Team A and Team B) who will need to compete in different designed jerseys; in the event that this is used only occasionally during the season the Team A points will be counted for the overall Team Points total.

4th category license holders and riders who compete for UCI registered teams are excluded from the British Womens Team Cup events.

A guest rider/s will be allowed for teams that are unable to field the full complement of riders but all teams will only be allowed 2 guest riders in any 2 races throughout the year.

Any normal accepted method of entry accepted by race organisers. The organiser will send a copy of the race programme to the registered Team Manager by e-mail for onward distribution to all members of their team.

At the end of each race, the first 6 riders shall be presented with prize money. The team prize money for the first 3 teams will not be paid out on the day by the Organiser but it will be sent to Jon Miles. The accrued prize money will be paid out after the final race of the British Womens Team Cup. Plus, depending on how many teams register each year, extra prize money will be paid out to at least the top 3 placed teams in the overall series. There shall be no overall ‘Individual Classification’ as this is a team competition.

Individual riders or riders that are not members of a team that has registered for the Womens British Team Cup competition can become part of the Composite Team on the day of a race. Composite Team jerseys will be available for their use – these jerseys must be worn during the race and returned to Jon Miles once the race has finished. This is to enable Teams that have registered for the competition to identify riders that are not part of the competition when they are racing. Riders who do not comply with this rule will be excluded from British Team Cup events.

Riders who are 15 minutes or more behind the main bunch as they enter the final lap
will be stopped on the finishing line by means of the chequered flag. They will still be given a finishing position that will entitle them to Team Cup points in that race.

Calculation of the team award shall be based upon the finishing position of the riders in each race with the first 4 riders in a team being awarded points as follows:


1st placed rider shall receive 150 points

2nd placed rider shall receive 130 points

3rd placed rider shall receive 115 points

4th placed rider shall receive 100 points

5th placed rider shall receive  90 points

6th placed rider shall receive 80 points

7th placed rider shall receive 70 points

8th placed rider shall receive 65 points

9th placed rider shall receive 60 points

10th placed rider shall receive 55 points

11th placed rider shall receive 52 points

12th placed rider shall receive 49 points

13th placed rider shall receive 47 points

14th place rider shall receive 45 points

15th placed rider shall receive 43 points

16th placed rider shall receive 41 points

17th placed rider shall receive 39 points

18th placed rider shall receive 37 points

19th placed rider shall receive 35 points

20th placed rider shall receive 33 points   


From 21st onwards in one point gaps up to 49th place (who gets 4 points) - then from 50th onwards each rider to finish gets one point.


IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT RIDERS FROM THE SAME TEAM, OVER AND ABOVE THE REQUIRED 4 COUNTING RIDERS, WILL FINISH IN HIGH PLACES BUT THESE WILL BE DISCOUNTED (AS WILL BE THE POINTS) UNTIL THE COUNTING RIDERS OF ALL TEAMS HAVE FINISHED
