Choose a Team consisting of 10 runners (you can choose arbitrary number of men/women).

Points are calculated in the following way:

  • For each World Cup race, your score is calculated as the World Cup points of the 10 runners in your team
  • Bonus: In each World Cup race, you get a bonus of 50% of the points for the runner who is on the top of your team-list. Another 25% bonus for the runner on second place on your team-list, and yet another 10% bonus for the runner who is number three on your team-list
  • Your 7 best total sums of the 9 World Cup races count in the total figure
  • You may drag as many runners over to your team in the right column as you want, but only the 10 topmost runners count in your sum
  • You can change which runners are in your team between each race
  • Last chance to change your team ahead of each World Cup race is given in the overview table here.
  • Calculation of points will be done after each World Cup round – but you may change your team ahead of each competition.
