1. Team registration is free and can be done throughout the season on the registration page on the www.aerobike.ee website.
2. Registered teams are valid until the end of the season and can not be changed during the season.

1. A team consists of 3 to 6 people.
2. Team members do not have to be members of the same cycling club or company - a team can also be a group of friends, a randomly selected group of riders or members from multiple clubs or companies together.

The three highest point scores will be taken into account, the lowest score will be eliminated. If the skater hasn't finished all the races in the series, the missed or abandoned race will be considered the lowest point score and won't be taken into account. The lowest score won't be taken into account after the 3rd stage of the series has taken place. Point scores are based on the following table:
|Men's and women's marathons||Half marathon||Folk race|
|*Points are awarded based on the separate men's and women's general classification results.||*Points are awarded based on the general classification results.||*Every finisher gets 10 points.|
7.4. In the team classification, the three highest scores earned by a team's members on a given stage will be counted regardless of the race distance or the skaters' age groups. If fewer than three team members finish the race, the points of all team members who finished the race will be taken into account.
7.5. Preliminary results will be published no later than the day after the race on the official Rullituur website - www.rullituur.ee.
