Format

The 2023/24 PCM Italia World Tour will be a ladder competition featuring a progressive season development. Generally, there will be one game day per week, unless the weekly event is a tour comprising more than 4-5 stages. The tournament will consist of two main rankings: the World Tour ranking and the World Cup ranking, comprising 10 events.

A significant aspect of the rebranding will be the division into Inline, Tour, Classics, ITT, and TTT classifications, which will serve as the primary focuses of the tournament. The World Ranking will be determined by the sum of points that riders accumulate in each event, making every event crucial for this ranking.

The World Cup will be based on the traditional World Cup concept, featuring 10 classic races that will compose it. The rider who accumulates the most points in these races will earn the privilege of wearing a special jersey.

Start of the season

As usual, players will be required to subscribe to the tournament via both Discord and the forum. During registration, they will need to select a team that will represent them throughout the entire season. Players will have the option to customize their team by changing its name and jersey design.

Furthermore, players will be allowed to choose a teammate who will accompany them for the remainder of the season. When forming a team, players must communicate their chosen team name to facilitate easy identification in the tournament's general classification.

Season

The season will encompass a variety of events, including classics, short tours, and Grand Tours. The selection of these events will be entirely arbitrary, meaning that each chosen event holds equal importance within its respective category. The classics will be further categorized into Monuments and other classics, each offering varying points towards the World Tour Ranking. Similarly, the tours will be categorized based on their scale, distinguishing between short tours and Grand Tours.

These categories will determine the point distribution within the tournament. Races and stages will be assigned a category based on their difficulty, which will impact various aspects of the tournament. For instance, the number of riders allowed to participate in a race will be fixed in accordance with its category. By utilizing these categorizations, the tournament aims to maintain fairness and balance across the events, ensuring an exciting and competitive season for all participants.

World Ranking

We are implementing the World Ranking as the inaugural ranking system for the tournament. It will encompass four race categories, each assigned a predetermined number of points that will be directly incorporated into the World Ranking standings.

When it comes to stage races, winning stages or securing secondary jerseys will hold significant importance. Therefore, here is the points scale for earning those achievements:

The weekly classification will be determined based on World Ranking points, taking into account only the first rider for each player and applying vacant points. The points earned by the first rider of each player in the World Ranking will be used to calculate their position in the weekly classification. No additional points will be awarded to the second or subsequent riders of the same player. This ensures that each player's performance is represented by their highest-ranking rider, and the points from other riders are left vacant and not considered for the weekly classification.
 
Road World Cup
This competition will comprise a selection of 10 classics that will be chosen by the tournament organizers. Emerging victorious in this classification will grant additional points towards the final tournament ranking
 
Full list of World Cup events:
1) Ronde van Vlaanderen
2) E3 Harelbeke
3) Milano - Sanremo
4) Giro dei Castelli Romani
5) Liege-Bastogne-Liege
6) Classique du Grand-Duché
7) Minerva Classic Brugge de Panne
8) Eschborn - Frankfurt
9) Paris-Roubaix
10) Il Lombardia
 
Bold are monuments.
 
Tour classification
This tournament marks the introduction of competitions based on World Cup disciplines. Regular tours will adhere to the point scale of the 2023 World Cup, while for Grand Tours, the point scale will be multiplied by five. In terms of secondary classifications and stages, the points will be deducted from the available pool. This implies that while you cannot score points with a second rider in these categories, you can prevent other players from acquiring those points by claiming them.

Inline classification
For the inline classification, individual stages within tours will be considered. Additionally, if a player's first rider is not part of the captains' group, they will not score points. The scale for allocating points is as follows
 
Pos. First rider
1 100
2 70
3 50
4 35
5 25
6 18
7 10
8 5
9 2
10 1
The scale for the King of the Mountains (KOM) and Individual Stage (IS) classifications will not be fixed. Instead, the scale used will correspond to the respective races in which these classifications occur. This means that the scale for KOM and IS points will be based on the specific scales used in races such as the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, Tour of the Alps, and other relevant competitions.
 
Bonuses
Once again, successfully distancing oneself from opponents will be highly rewarded, even within individual stages. Bonuses will be granted based on the following categories:
1) Flat stages, easy hill stages, single climb stages (as finish), and flat cobbled stages: 5x bonus.
2) Hill stages and mountain stages without a mountain top finish (with an elevation gain of less than 6000 meters): 3x bonus.
3) Hard mountain stages and stages without a mountain top finish with an elevation gain exceeding 6000 meters: 2x bonus.
 
The bonus points will be determined by comparing the time gap between the group comprising the human rider who represents 50% of the participants in the room plus 1 (for instance, the group of 4th if there are 6 or 7 people, or the group of 5th for 8 or 9 people). Only riders ahead of this group will receive the bonus points.
 
Classic classification

The classics classification will incorporate the customary scale used for classics races, considering vacant points. Additionally, if a player's first rider is not part of the captains' group, they will not score points.

Pos. First rider
1 100
2 70
3 50
4 35
5 25
6 18
7 10
8 5
9 2
10 1

 

Bonuses

Furthermore, bonuses will be awarded based on the time gaps obtained in the classics. The classics will be divided into distinct categories, each with its own specific scale of points and bonuses.

1) Flat classics, small hill classics, flat cobbled classics: 5x pts

2) Hill classics, cobbled classics, easy mountain classics: 3x pts

3) Mountain classics: 2x pts The allocation of bonus points will be determined by the time gap between the group containing the human rider who represents 50% of the participants in the room plus one (e.g., the group of 4th if there are 6 or 7 people, or the group of 5th for 8 or 9 people). Only riders who are ahead of this group will receive the bonus points.

ITT/TTT classification

These two specialties will be valid for the same classification. The scale used for each classification will follow the usual and established standards.
 

Pos. First rider
1 100
2 70
3 50
4 35
5 25
6 18
7 10
8 5
9 2
10 1

Bonuses

For this classifications, time gaps from the last human rider will be taken into account with a multiplier of 1x. The maximum bonus points awarded will be 60 points for Individual Time Trials (ITT) with a time gap of 1 minute, and 120 points for Team Time Trials (TTT) with a time gap of 2 minutes.

Beyond these thresholds, the bonus points will remain the same.

Final Tournament classification

At this stage, the final classification will be determined by the sum of the aforementioned classifications, combined with the points accumulated up to that point. The following values will be used for the different classifications:

Pos. World Ranking World Cup Rank Inline Tour Classics ITT/TTT
1 1000 800 1800 1800 1200 450
2 700 600 1500 1500 900 300
