What is the difference between events and contests?

Why do certain events not have fantasy contests?

Sometimes a lack of event start lists prohibit us from having all athletes on the start list in the system. We also might feel like there would not be enough interest in the event.

Can a fantasy contest be cancelled?

TRS Triathlon reserves the right to cancel contests at our discretion, without any restrictions. This would typically be done only in cases where we believe that, due to problems with the fantasy software or events impacting the sporting events, there would be a widespread impact on the integrity of the contest.

What is the Main Pack in ITU?

The main pack for fantasy scoring is defined as the first pack of more than 12 riders with less then a 5 sec gap between riders.

A dropped rider is any rider arriving after the main pack, with a time pad of greater than 5 seconds to the main pack.
