To qualify for Championship awards participants must compete in three of the five races in the 2023 series.
Only the BEST three scores from each athlete are used to determine the final series score. This practice is geared to reward performance and not the number of events raced.
Scores are weighted by race. CSTS Races 1-4 are weighted 1.0, and the CSTS Championship Race 5 is weighted 2.0 (double).
To establish the event score for participants, all times are divided into the base average time and then multiplied by the event weight index, then multiplied by 10000 to make the number an integer. Men’s and women’s times will be calculated separately.
This same process will apply for females. The fastest female time will become the "base" time that all female times are measured against.
