Competition registration will take place on the day, make sure you know which comp you want to enter before you go to the registation table. (Booking online is reccommended).
Under 10s - A rider who is aged under 10 years and has no sponsor of any kind. Riders in this category will only compete in the park section.
Intermediate- These riders are beginning to understand how to flow and have a few tricks under thier belts. These can come in the form of various tricks, including but not limited to, tailwhips, 360s, briflips as well as basic flips and combination tricks, eg. bar whips. Riders in this category will compete in the Street and Park sections.
Open - The Open category is open to anyone who is willing to enter but the riders should have competed in at least one competition prior to entering an Open comp. Riders in this category will be pulling high level tricks and combinations with increased amplitude and flow. This is a PRO level competition but is open to anyone willing to take on the challenge! Riders in this category will compete in the Street, Park and Bowl sections.
Open Comp (Open to all) (Park, Street and Bowl) - £150 prize purse (1st - £75, 2nd - £50, 3rd - £25)
Length of run: Two 45 second runs in each section. (Park, Street and Bowl)
Riders in the Open category will compete in the Street, Park and Bowl sections and will perform two 45 second runs in each section.
These runs will be scored by the judges based on ‘Number of Tricks Landed’, ‘Difficulty/Amplitude’ and ‘Flow/Park Use’.
Each judge will score each category out of 100. These will then be added together and then averaged for your final run score. The best score out of the 2 runs will count.
Then, the highest scoring run from each section will be used and these will be added together then divided by 3 to create a final score out of 100.
Eg. Street: 68, Park: 74, Bowl: 62 = 204 ÷ 3 = 68 / 100
Each rider category will perform their two 45 second runs and then we will immediatly move over to the next category which is required to compete in the relevant section.
Your best score between your two runs will be counted for final standing purposes.
There will be 3 judges and they will score you in the following areas.
1- NUMBER OF TRICKS LANDED. For this category you will receive 1 point for each trick that you land. There is a total of 10 points available in this category. Eg. If you throw 12 tricks in your run but only land 9, you will receive 9 points. (This will be multiplied by 10 for Open and Intermediates).
2- DIFFICULTY / AMPLITUDE. For this category you will receive a score out of 10 (Under 10s) or 100 (Intermediate / Open). It will be based on the overall difficulty of your tricks as well as the amplitude of your tricks. Eg. A flair whip will receive a higher score than a tail whip as it is more DIFFICULT. A buttercup 3 feet above coping will receive a higher score than a buttercup under coping as it has more AMPLITUDE.
3- FLOW / PARK USE. For this category you will receive a score out of 10 (Under 10s) or 100 (Intermediate / Open). It will be based on the flow of your run as well as your use of the park. Eg. A run full of flyout tricks will receive fewer points than a run that is based on a single line that is linked together, as it has better FLOW. A rider that sticks to one area of the park will receive fewer points than a rider that uses multiple areas of the park as they had better PARK USE.
These scores will then be added together and averaged for your final run score.
The best score out of 2 runs will count for the event.
