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.

Example of ranking calculation

Select competition
The example below calculates ranking points for 7-mila 2020, but you can select whichever race you’d like:
Ranking calculation for 7-mila 2020
Step 1, is the race qualified for ranking points?
This is determined by an administrator on XC-results.com after having looked through and approved the results.
Status: Yes, the race qualifies!
Step 2, listing comparable groups of skiers

Comparable groups

Cross-country skiingClassicMass start40km Select this one instead
Step 3a, calculating the reference time for the group
The reference time is the time that the best skier in the world (with a ranking of 100p) would’ve had.
It is this time the ranking points are based on.
In this group there are 106 results, we’ll be using the 20 fastest in the calculation of the reference time.

Explanation

  • Time is the skier’s time on the race
  • Ranking is the skiers’s previous ranking at the time of the competition
  • Adjusted ranking takes into account several factors, including how many results the skier already has, or is based on a pre-set value if the skier has no previous results at all
  • Suggested reference time is the time we think that the reference time would be, based on the skier’s time and adjusted ranking

After slicing of the top and bottom values the average of the suggeseted reference times above is 03:16:36.47, which we’ll use as reference time.
Step 3b, calculate environmental compensation

Step 4, award ranking points
The ranking points that are awarded is based on how much the skier is behind the winner.
Please note that the ranking points in this list might differ from those in the actual result lists,
this is due to the calculations in these examples are somewhat simplified.

  • Distributed ranking points at the race
