SCORING

Chip timing will be used for Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 - same chip for each day. Each stage will be scored by the system below. Your finish placing will earn the number of points next to that place. Your points for all three stages will be added together and the rider with the highest points wins the overall Queen’s Stage Race. In the event of a tie in points after the completion of all three stages, the rider with the lowest overall time will be crowned the official Queen’s Stage Race Rodeo Queen or Bronco Buster and overall winner.
