Coupe de France (cycling)
The Coupe de France has been a series of French one-day races that has been held since the 1992 season , each of which awards points that contribute to an overall ranking. Points are awarded exclusively to French riders and those from other nations who ride for a French cycling team, as well as to French teams. However, the individual races are also open to all other drivers and teams. The Coupe de France is organized by the French Cycling Federation ( FFC ), the current main sponsor is the horse betting provider PMU .
The record winner of the Coupe de France among drivers is Frenchman Samuel Dumoulin with three victories. Record winners among the teams are the teams Crédit Agricole and FDJ with seven wins each (including their wins under previous team names).
The overall ranking of the Coupe de France for drivers is based on the following points awarded in each individual race after the finish:
For the team evaluation, the three best placed drivers of a team are evaluated in each race after the finish and their positions are added to a total value. The team with the lowest total score then receives 12 points for the team rating, the team with the second lowest 9, and then the teams with the lowest rankings each receive one point less.
