ABOUT THE RANK
The IRONMAN 70.3 BRAZIL TOUR Rankings will give points to all atheltes who race at least three IRONMAN 70.3 race in Brazil during 2017 calendar year. These include: IRONMAN 70.3 Palmas, IRONMAN 70.3 Alagoas, IRONMAN 70.3 Rio de Janeiro and IRONMAN 70.3 Fortaleza.
Athletes who race all 4 races will be allowed to discard his/hers worst result, which will improve their chance for a better rank within their division.
The points system adopted will be the same used by World Triathlon Corporation. Points are calculated based on the athlete’s race finish time behind the first finisher in his/her age group. Points continue to drop as the race time increases, until the points reach a “point floor,” at which point they don’t drop any further and every athlete after this will receive the value of the “point floor.”
