Points are allocated to riders based on their real-life performance in each event.

Points are awarded in three areas: Finishing Positions, Assists and Breakaways.

Assists (Team Mate Points)

Points for Assists are awarded to the real-life team-mates of riders who finish in the top three, to recognise the efforts that go into putting a team's rider into a winning position.

Assist points are awarded as follows:

Team Mate 2nd4024
Team Mate 3rd2012

In order to score assist points, a rider must start the race - they do not have to complete the course.

Note that riders who finish in the top three do not score assist points for their own finishing position.

Breakaway Points

Points for Breakaways are awarded to the riders who animate the race in its early stages and also during the crunch moments leading up the the finale.

There are four nominated Breakaway Points Sectors during each event, where the riders in the leading group on the road will all score points.

The first Breakaway Points Sector is based at 50% race distance.

The second Breakaway Points Sector is based at 50km to go.

The third Breakaway Points Sector is based at 20km to go.

The fourth Breakaway Points Sector is based at 10km to go.

The following points are scored at each breakaway points zone.

PositionRace Category OneRace Category Two
In Lead Group at Breakway Points Zone 1 (50% race distance)6036
In Lead Group at Breakway Points Zone 2 (50 km to go)6036
In Lead Group at Breakway Points Zone 3 (20km to go)6036
In Lead Group at Breakway Points Zone 4 (10km to go)6036

For the purposes of points scoring, a "leading group" of riders is a group of 20 riders or less, with a gap of more than five seconds to the next rider or group of riders on the road.

Velogames will review video footage and race reports to ensure an accurate distribution of Breakaway Points, but in all cases the decision of Velogames is final.
