I understand how the current points system works but...

250 Overall
1. Joey Savatgy (Kawasaki) 7-1
2. Zach Osborne (Husqvarna) 4-3
3. Dylan Ferrandis (Yamaha) 3-4
4. Adam Cianciarulo (Kawasaki) 2-5
5. RJ Hampshire (Honda) 6-2

Wouldn't it make better sense if you added the moto finishes together to determine the overall instead of points awarded?

1. Zach Osborne 4 + 3 = 7 *Overall winner based on 2nd moto finish
2. Dylan Fessandis 3 + 4 = 7
3. Adam Cianciarulo 2 + 5 = 7
4. Joey Savatgy 7 + 1 = 8
5. RJ Hampshire 6 + 2 = 8

It just seem to me the guys that finished 3/4 were more consistent and deserved to be placed higher on the podium.


You could still award event points the same per moto, just calculate the overall finish differently.

Thoughts?

I think they went to the current overall scoring in 2006 (?), but before then they added the Moto finishes.

I think it helps with confusion when you have results like yesterday, or when a guy goes 2-2 (44 pts.) and another goes 1-3 (45 pts.). I think the guy that earned the most points should get the nod. But I do get your point.

I like that a win is something to be coveted. I wish it was even more valuable. The fact that Tomac won like 10 supercrosses and didn't win the title doesn't seem right to me

I agree. The current system seems to work well but first should get more of a premium than it currently does.

That is why they have points per moto. Wins mean more than consistency. I found out that when I went 2-2 for third. A 3-1 beats a 1-3 which beats a 2-2. First pays 25 Second pays 22 Third pays 20. Second moto is the tie breaker.

I know that the Overall is rooted in the history of the sport. Since the motos pay points, and the overall doesn't, I really don't care about the overall anymore.
