No such cyclist does not dream of becoming successful and professional. Getting into the top ranking is the most pleasing reward. The International Union of Cyclists annually compiles a rating list. Points serve as the basis for cycling classification.
Cyclists score points in races. Points most often depend on several factors: the importance of the race, the number of competitors, the level of competition, and the difficulty of the race track.
