After the last race of the season, the prizes will be awarded to the top male and female athletes who have earned the highest total points. Age group winners will receive awards for the highest total in each age group. There is no duplication of awards. Overall winners are ineligible for age group awards.

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?

Q. How deep are the age groups?
A: Age groups go 1 deep for Grand Prix awards
