Thunder Bolt Stage Race: December 2019
Welcome to the Five Day Thunder Bolt Stage Race, running from December 8th to December 13th. The stage race uses a time-based general classification, as well as having a sprinter and climber classification. The sprinter and climber classifications will award the first 6 of each grade points (10, 7, 5, 3, 2, 1) for all sprint and KOM segments in each race. Racers will need to complete at least four events plus the prolog to be counted in the classifications.
Classifications will be split into two, one for the European timezone and one for the North American timezone. We have decided to also include a separate women's classification irresepective of numbers, to promote competition. We will also be trialing a teams classification, taking the fastest of each team from each day.
