Overview
The goal of the ranking system at XC-results.com is that the ranking points which is awarded on a race actually should correspond to the performance of the competitor, regardless of ski conditions, the course or external circumstances.
The ranking system is using the times of the fastest skiers and their previous ranking points when it calculates the points in a race.
Ranking
A skier who has 4 or more ranking-qualifying results the last 4 years get a ranking
Ranking-qualifying races
All races are not qualified to get ranking points.
To be qualified, it must meet certain requirements:
  • The race must be public. Private races, like (club-members-only) are not.
  • Times must be presented in the result list
  • Distances must be presented in the result list
  • The race must be of a "common" type. Ski-cross, sprints and relays are normally not qualified.
Distances, not classes
The way the ranking system is built up makes it so that it will get better and better the more head-to-head-meetings there are.

This is why the ranking system is considering all skiers who has raced the same distance as like they are competeing against eachother, not just those who are in the same class.
