Annual Overall ranking = 3 personal best scores in overall result from 3 stations
For Annual Overall ranking, AST will automatically use the three best overall results(point) from each individual to calculate the point for annual overall result.
If participant has joined 5 races, AST will pick the three of the best overall results from three leagues to be his/her annual overall results.
If participant has joined 2 races, AST will use the overall results from two leagues to be his/her annual overall results.
If the racers have the same point for annual overall point, then they will share the same placing.
If the annual overall point of a racer A and racer B are both 2500 (2nd higher score in the ranking), then they will both be 2nd place in Asian ranking. Also, they will share the prize money for 2nd place and 3rd place.
