League competitions use sportIDENT (SI) electronic punches. Results are always posted at the venue, and are available online within hours after competition. Online post-event analyses include splits and LapCombat.
At the end of the league season, individual winners in every category are determined based on their best 8 results. In addition, champion clubs are declared based on a scoring system that combines the best results of each club’s members.
