We’re spicing up the racing by having an additional prize for each grade by including a points race based on the ‘point a lap’ system. A single point will be awarded to the first rider to finish each lap, the rider with the most points at the end of the race will win the points race prize. This is in addition to podium positions at the end of the race.
