Point System
The best 7 results out of the 9 events will count towards the final classification.
The final team classification of the series will be made by accumulation of the points obtained in each Nation Cup Competition according to the points scale below.


In case of a tie in the final classification, the tie will be decided in favor of the nation that has participated in a greater number of events.

If the tie remains, for all competitions for which the team results counts, the individual placing of the best three team members will be added.  For any team rider not having completed the competition the placing of the last finisher of the competition will apply.

The tie will be decided in favor of the team with the lower of such totals.
