. For fields greater than 80 riders three-lap heat races will be contested to determine what riders advance to the final and their start order in the final. The number of heats will be determined by the total number of riders registered. Call ups for all qualifying races will be random draw. In the heats, riders will be called up by random order. The finals will be raced with 80 riders with five coming from the Repechage. The Repechage is open to all racers who did not qualify for the Finals coming out of their qualifying heat..
. For the World Championship Final, riders will be called up by their order of finish in their heats (all first riders of the different heats, all second riders of the different heats and so forth).
