Starting next season, there will be big changes in the scoring system.
Firstly, changed the earning points for top-6 in the single race. Previously it was 60-54-48-43-40-38. Now, the winner gets 90 pts, the second place 75pts, and 60 for the third.
Like this: 90-75-60-50-45-40. Starting from the 7th place, nothing changed.
Secondly, the worst two races won't be dropped. Every competition in the World Cup will count toward the Total Score
And thirdly, only World Cup races count. Thus, there are no more World Cup points collected at World Championship events.
This is driven by the IBU's general direction to make the World Championships a stand-alone flagship event.
