  • any rider coming off the gate without a transponder or with a non-working transponder will be scored as DNF.
  • if a rider gets a start signal but not a finish signal the commissaires will use best endeavours to find the placing for that rider if this is not possible the rider will be scored last.

In all cases the decisions made by the Chief Commissaire are final
