- The next determining factor will be the highest placed in the SoCal Cup Final race.
- The last determining factor will be number of race starts.
Please be aware that once results are posted at an event, you have a 15 minute window to protest the results. Once that 15 minute period has elapsed, the results are official and they cannot be changed. The input to the SoCal Cup is based on the official results submitted by the USCF Chief Referee. Requests to change placings and team affiliations will most likely not be made. Changes to correct an error so that it is consistent with the information found on your USAC license will be made. These changes are typically done to correct typos of a rider’s name or USAC club/team. We will also correct any omissions to the SoCal Cup database, as long as that missing data is found in the official results.
