ACP Points

The ACP assigns "points" for each rider that completes an ACP-sanctioned event. The number of points assigned depends on the brevet distance as indicated by the table below. Nations and organizing clubs are ranked by the number of points accumulated during the year and the results are listed in the annual ACP plaquette (magazine). PBP completions accumulate ACP points; however, other 1200km+ events such as BMB do not. There are no ACP points for fleches nor are there any for domestically-sanctioned events such as populaires, arrows, and domestic brevets.

Domestic Points

RUSA also has developed a system of points that includes all events on its calendar, some of which are not counted under the ACP points system. For example, a small region that organizes a 1200km event or a series of populaires may accumulate more domestic points than ACP points during a season. Domestic points recognize RBAs who are expanding the range of randonneur event types in their regions. The domestic points system may be used in various cost-sharing formulas or rebate systems intended to assist RBAs.

Other than PBP, this table includes only those events run by USA clubs.
It does not include events done by USA participants in other countries.

The 1999 ACP points figure includes brevets run under both the RUSA and the International Randonneurs organizations. RUSA does not have any of the data from International Randonneurs in its database.

1ACP sometimes reports points for the Catalan and Vasco regions of Spain separately. This is a combined total.

In non-PBP years, the USA has typically led all nations in ACP points. Not so in 2012 -- Japan has taken over that position. In PBP years, France dominates the competition. For example, in 1999, France had 69371 points versus 15558 in the USA. Points resulting from PBP completions make a huge difference: 20034 for France vs. 3900 for the USA in 1999.

In 2003, ACP reported national rankings for BRM brevet points (200km-1000km) just as it does in non-PBP years. However, it also published the "Challenge ACP" which ranked nations and clubs for 200km through 600km brevets and PBP finishes (inexplicably, this ranking omits points for 1000km brevets). The table above uses the "Challenge ACP" rankings and totals for 2003; for all other years, the totals include points for 1000km brevets. In 2007 and 2011, ACP reported national rankings but excluded points for PBP finishes. This makes the 2007 and 2011 points totals incomparable with the 1999 and 2003 totals (which included PBP points).


An interesting statistic is the number of ACP points accumulated relative to the nation's population, a crude measure of the popularity of randonneur cycling in that country. The following table is based on the points from 2012 and the population estimate of 2000.
