The Final classification will be obtained by adding the penalty points of the two rounds. The time of the second round will be taken into account in case of a tie.

The Top Ten Final, created on the initiative of the riders, was held for the first time in 2001. Germany’s Ludger Beerbaum won the 2001 and 2002 editions; he was followed by Rodrigo Pessoa in 2003 and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum in 2004. All of these riders will be in Geneva to fight to secure yet another prestigious title.

Geneva will also host the Driving World Cup.
