About the Nations Cup
The BMO Nations Cup is the only competition in which nations are represented by selected teams. Teams from participating countries can be made up of three or four riders and are led by a team manager. Each member of each team will jump a round on a course of 12 obstacles. Each team’s top three scores are added together for a first-round total.
The top six teams return in reverse order of standings to jump the same course in round two. Again, each team’s top three scores are added to the first-round total to determine the eventual winner. In the event of equal penalties for first place, the Team Manager appoints a single team member for the start.
