The rules for the Rolex FEI World Cup Final

Wednesday, 24 April 2013

The Rolex FEI World Cup Final is ridden over competitions held Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The first part of the final, the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final I, will be a table C class ridden over a 1.50 course. Faults for fences down will be converted into additional time, and the winner is the rider with the fastest time. The winner of the class gets one point more than the total number of starters in the first competition of the final, the runner-up gets two points less than the winner, the third placed rider three points less, and so on.


On Friday the riders will compete in the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final II, which will be a table A class set at 1.60 meters against the clock and ridden as a Grand Prix class with a jump- off. Points will be given as in the first round; the winner of the class gets one point more than the total number of riders in the first round of the final.

After the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final II, points are transformed into penalties. The rider with the highest number of points after two competitions will have zero penalties. For all other riders the number of penalties will be calculated by multiplying with the coefficient of 0.50 the difference between their number of points and the points of the leading rider after two competitions.

 
The third and final competition, Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final III takes place on Sunday. It will be a table A class with two rounds over a Grand Prix course at 1.60 meters. Only two thirds (plus ties) of the starters in the first final competition are allowed to compete in the first round of the third final competition. Only 50% (plus ties) of the starters in Sunday’s first round are allowed to start in the second round.


The winner of the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final is the rider that after all rounds has the least amount of penalties. If two or more riders should have the same amount of penalties, there will be a jump-off for the victory.
