Event Registration & Details
Big 5 Scoring System
To enter the Big5 Challenge you need to enter 5 of the following 7 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival Events:
All 5 races of your choice will be electronically timed.
In order to rank all Big 5 athletes against each other- independent of the choice of event – the scores will be calculated as follows:
Each Big Five event is scored on a points system where a maximum of 1000 points are allocated for each event of the Big Five. Points are calculated for each of the Big Five Events by taking the overall event winner’s time (male & female respectively) for that particular course and dividing that by the individual Big Five competitor’s time and then multiplying that by 1000 to give a point value.
For example: the winner of the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Knysna Rotary Cycle Tour race does a time of 03:02:15 and the Big Five Competitor finishes the race in 03:42:11. The Points calculation for that competitor for that event is 03:02:15/03:43:15 (0.820269) x 1000 = 820
Note that points will be rounded off to the nearest whole number.
By this system the scoring of a Big Five participant’s performance in each race is relative to the best competitor in the field for that race making it possible to compare the results in different event. Participants in the Big Five are able to make strategic decisions based on their competencies in the different sports relative to the best athletes in the field.
