ISA World Champs Format:
Qualification - 50 qualified riders get 2x50 second runs. Best run counts. Ties broken with discarded run score.
Riders will be split into 5 groups of 10, with riders taking both their runs within those groups.
Final - Top 10 riders from qualification get 2x50 second runs. Best run counts. Ties broken with discarded run score.
A 5 judging panel is compulsory for the regional and world finals.
When running a 5 judge panel only the 3 middle scores are calculated meaning the highest and lowest scores are dropped from the overall calculation.
Judges scores are marked from 1 to 100 based upon the ISA judging criteria.
Judges will be looking at:
The difficultly of tricks
Diversity of the run – showing a variety of tricks and using the park to its full capability with varied or original lines.
Consistency – points are deducted for crashes, foot slips and sketchy lands.
Style – Landing cleanly, riding confidently, making tricks look easy and effortless and showing originality.
So who's gonna win? Well they have to have qualified, whether with a wildcard or through a qualifying event. Check out this years runners and riders:
