Note: The Tour de FCCC 2-day stage race will be scored as one event based on final overall GC points only. Points for this event will be awarded based on NJ riders only – meaning that the highest placed NJ rider in each age group will score 5 pts, the 2nd NJ rider will score 4 pts, etc. In addition, there will be a 1.5 point bonus for the top NJ finisher in each stage, a 1 point bonus for the 2nd NJ finisher and a .5 point bonus for all other finishers.

All riders must be members of NJBA clubs before the final event in the competition.

This edition of the Rusty Potts U19 Cup will comprise 11 challenging events, representing 4 disciplines of the sport.

• 5 Time Trials
• 4 Criteriums
• 1 Road Race
•  and one 2-day Stage Race (TT, Road Race & Criterium)

The competition aims to rewards those junior riders who show consistency across all disciplines and commitment throughout the season.

The Junior Development Committee would like to thank all those event promoters who make time to include junior races at their events and all the officials who are presented with unique challenges during our junior races, keeping track of riders in different age groups and of widely different abilities and skill levels.
