The iconic Dorney Lake will provide the backdrop for the series-ending races in the Youth & Junior and Senior Super Series. Youth A athletes will be racing with Youth B’s , while Junior and Senior athletes will be racing together.
With the final points on offer in 2022, it will be at Eton Dorney where the champions of the 2022 Youth & Junior and Senior Super Series are crowned.
Athletes will be competing in an Eliminator Format. Youth’s will compete over 3 rounds and the older athletes will compete over 4 rounds. Each progressing round will see athletes compete across more heats of fewer athletes. E.g. In a field of 60 athletes, the first round would consist of 2 heats of 30 athletes, round 2 would be 3 heats of 20 athletes, round 3 (the final round for Youth’s) would be 4 heats of 15 athletes and round 4 would be 6 heats of 10. The final round will essentially act as A, B, C, D (E and F – for Junior and Senior athletes only) Finals, with athletes in the A final receiving the top finishing positions and rankings points, followed by athletes in the B final, then C final and so on.
All athletes will be able to take part in each round of heats. The eliminator aspect refers to the way athletes will be eliminated into lower heats and finals through each stage, which will ultimately limit their ranking points.
