A: No if they are in the top 3 overall they just get those points and don’t win their age group

Q. Are overall totals a combination of overall points + age group points or are they maintained separately?
A: They are the maintained the same, if you are 3rd overall in one race you get 4 points and if you are first in age group the next race you get 3 points for a total of 7 points.
