World Cup – new point system

In order to simplify the formula used to calculate the points of each competitor with DID in the World Cup accredited races, the Council has approved a system based on the position of the competitors in the result list instead of the time.

The competitors will easily be able to calculate and control their points using the grid shown in the World Cup Regulations § F. With this new point system the points received during two 1-heat races are equivalent to the points received during a 2-heat race. Consequently the regulation B.4 which prevents for organizing two 1-heat races on two consecutive days is not necessary any more and has been removed.

The complete revised World Cup regulations are available on this website under World Cup Forms and Regulations.

In the absence of Continental Dryland Championships this season due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its travel restrictions, the World Cup will be the only IFSS international Dryland competition during the season 2020-2021.

The IFSS Council and the Accreditation Committee recommend that the Member Federations request the accreditation of more events so that their competitors can compete for an international title without traveling outside of their national boundaries.
