Vuelta Stage 1 TTT Scoring

by manolo   August 8, 2011  

I saw the scoring section is up for the Vuelta stages. How does the scoring work? When it says "Finish line: Points awarded on the line of a stage or day race. First across the line gets 20 points, down to 1 point for 20th position"

Does it mean for example that if Omega Pharma Lotto (OPL)wins the TTT, and Gilbert crosses the line first for Omega Pharma Lotto, he gets 10 points for OPL win plus 20 points for being first accross the line? For a total of 30 points? If Roelandts is 2nd for OPL, he gets 10 points for the OPL TTT win + 19 points for being 2nd accross the line, so, 29 points, etc.?

That's usually not the case and I'm sure when Dave gets back he'll change it, for the TTT in the Giro and TdF it was 10 points for each member of the winning team, 9 points per member of 2nd etc.

It all depends on what Dave decides,

The Giro opening stage was scored

TTT stage: Team Time Trial scoring. 10 points for each participating member of the first place team down to 1 point for each participating member of the 10th placed team

But the TdF was different because it wasn't the opening stage

So i'd think with it being the opening stage it will be scored like the Giro, First team all get 10 (assuming they finish together) down to 1 point for 10th place

The TDF TTT was only 'different' in that it included the GC, KM, PC etc. points. I believe the Tour TTT also originally had this mistake on the page, and it was rectified. So, as gkam says, it'll be scored like the Giro one.
