Format and guidelines
There will be crowned winners per class both on each race and in total per season
The individual rider's ranking in the series is based on the location of all participant races. All held races in the series, less one, form the basis for the total ranking for the current season
by participation in all races, the race with the lowest position will be automatically deducted from the rankings
if you participate in all but one race in the series, you will still have achieved the maximum number of races that can form the basis for the ranking
Start order is Ladies first, then Master classes, so Men finally. Internally in classes, you start randomly with the space provided by the starter.
The 80/20 series is open to all contestants from the year the rider fills 17 years. Remember identification with date of birth upon obtaining start number
Some of the races in the series may be open to riders under 17 years (13-16 years) depending on local organizer
The number of participants on each race is decided by the local organizer based on what it considers to be feasible and proper.

Riders are responsible for incorporating information provided by the organizer for each race.
Riders must follow the markings and instructions set by the organizer. Riders should stick to the path, not cut turns or take shortcuts that obviously provide a time benefit. If you break a marking tape, you have to go back in the trail where you broke the marking tape and replace the tape.

Violation of rules can lead to time penalty or disqualification based on severity.

Other protection and armor such as knee, elbow, back etc are optional.
The individual rider is obliged to stop and help a damaged rider, and make sure that the nearest guard is notified of the incident. If necessary, emergency numbers must be called immediately. Lost time can be judiciously adjusted based on an assessment of the current organizer.
