Several of the many factors used in the rankings summary (click here to learn more)
Finishing position relative to winner
Difficulty – each race has a different difficulty rank depending on how competitive the field is and this rank can change as the season progresses.
Regional adjustments – relative depth of ability levels in each region
Consistency – how variable are your results
Race factor – how often do you race. Example: Spartan throws different distances/terrain types/obstacles at the competitors and no two races are the same. Example: Numerous top 5 performances at high strength of schedule races could land an athlete placed above an athlete that only raced once, but won a high strength of schedule race.
