HOW IT WORKS
:
The tour has three different races or stages.  In each stage the top 10 finishers in each category will be awarded points on the following scale: 16, 13, 11, 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Every athlete receives one point for finishing the stage.  There will be intermediate points awarded to the first 3 racers across the line from each category on the 1st lap of the marathon on the following scale: 6, 4, 2. Top finishers from each category at intermediate sprints and the final sprint will be awarded points even if it is a combined heat (ex. the 1st masters women finishing 5th overall in the marathon will be awarded 16 points).  At the completion of all three stages the athlete with the most points in each category is declared the Luigino Chicagoland Inline Tour champion.

RULES
All participants must sign event waiver to be considered a participant in this event.

The winner of overall tour placement ties will be determined by whoever placed better in the marathon.

There is no drafting in the time trial.  Drafting in the 2 mile TT will result in a penalty of -40 points from tour score.
