    Points. When someone votes points are assigned based on where the team is in their ranking. The higher ranked, the more points assigned. Then they add the points together for every team and sort based on who has the most.

    She does deserve something, but at the same time, the elites had a right to know there was someone else they were racing against. She should have entered in the elite race. Still, she should have been compensated and recognized, which it looks like they did belatedly.

    So what? If you're going to put yourself in the elite you should be able to back it up, especially when no one there was even elite.
