On every event of the trophy, the first 50 of the scratch classification for every course (short and long) will be granted points. In addition to the points for scratch classification; points will be given on the classification for every category over 10 riders. Points will be attributed on the following basis:

The final general classification (scratch and category) for the Trophy will take into account the total of points for all 4 events.
In case of even results, participants who completed all 4 events will have the advantage. In case of a new even result, the comparison of the best position on a scratch classification will determine the position.
