Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The championship rules for all disciplines have been updated for the 2012 season.

Changes include decisions made during the last IKA Annual General Meeting based on rider feedback and specialist working party consultations, adaptions of the newly introduced PKRA freestyle scoring system for competitions not using computer based scoring, and rules and regulations for the Wave Performance discipline.

One of the major changes is surely the freestyle scoring introduced by the PKRA for 2012. A slightly modified version will be used on the continental tours.
