Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Striving to create lower level qualifying events on a national and continental level leading up to the KSP World Championship Tour in the future, this years KSP qualification system will be based on applications and include the IKA member national associations, national championship results (where existing) and the IKA wave world ranking once again.

Slots for the 24 riders male fleet are allocated as follows (for the womens fleet, 50 % of the quota each)

  • Top 10 ranked riders from the 2012 KSP ranking
  • 1 wild cards for KSP tour
  • 1 wild card for IKA
  • 2 local wild cards per event (as agreed on with the events Industry Sponsors)

Remaining slots will focus on globalization/the inclusion of more nations – this means except from the slots above, only riders from nations that are not yet represented are accepted.
