Untill the startlist is definitive the dropbox contains riders in black, those are the one that are prognosed to ride the Olympic Games 2012, and riders in grey, the riders that probably will not ride the Olympic Games 2012.

Scoring points for your stage classification
Only the individual rider’s scores will count in this classification.
For each cyclist that’s on your startlist, you’ll get points if they are within the first 20 cyclists who cross the finishline.
The number of points awarded depends on the ranking of your cyclist(s), which are listed below. All points earnt will form a stage-classification.
|Position||Points|| ||Position|| Points |
|1st place||100|| ||11th place||10|
|2nd place||80|| ||12th place||9|
|3rd place||70|| ||13th place||8|
|4th place||60|| ||14th place||7|
|5th place||50|| ||15th place||6|
|6th place||40|| ||16th place||5|
|7th place||30|| ||17th place||4|

General classification based on your Stagescores
Every entered stage you will receive a score based on the stageresults.
The total number of entered startlists for that race also determines the height of your score.
The following formula will be used to determine the definite scores:
1000-((1000/startlists)*(rank-1)) + bonus
- A classification in the first 5 scores will earn you bonuses,
1st 50 extra, 2nd 40 extra, then 30, 20 and 10.
- With this formula, the maximum score is 1050
(1000 basic points scored + 50 bonus)
- Through the formula, the number of startlists entered will determine the number of points of 2nd place, all the way down to last place.
- When more than one player finish at the same placing, the scores will be split equally.
- Scores will be rounded up to two decimals
Your scores will be added up and will result in the Stage competition’s general classification.
Whoever scores the most points during the Race, will win the Olympic Games 2012 StageCompetition.
