If a CXC Marathon Cup race is modified (e.g. a classic race becomes a freestyle race), the equivalent race will count toward Cup points.

If a Cup race is postponed, the postponed race will count toward Cup points, unless the postponement date is on the same weekend as a different Cup race, in which case the originally scheduled Cup race for that weekend will count toward Cup points.
