Seeding is the process used to determine the start time per entrant. Its purpose is to group cyclists together in bunches of equal ability, thereby reducing the need for overtaking and the risk of accidents or bottlenecks at any point on the route.
How seeding is done
- Using available results for events timed by RaceTec, a seeding index is calculated per person.
- This offers an indication of the person’s ability relative to other entrants.
- An index of “0” means you are of the same ability as the winner, while a “100” index means we expect you to do roughly double the time of the winner.
- Everyone with an index between 0 and approximately 100 is seeded into one of the seeded groups with riders of equal ability.
Your best result in Cycle Tour seeding events, or the average of your best three other results (if better), is used to determine your seeding.
- These events may carry a penalty if it does not meet certain criteria, i.e. distance or total acsent.
- We make concessions for certain special groups by giving them a start in the last few seeded batches. These may include people who have completed more than a certain number of Cycle Tours or seeding events, people over 70 years of age, and international riders.
- Next are the charity or corporate groups that did not qualify as seeded groups, and then the PPA members.
