How will the competition be run?

An expression session will be done with all the JR’s of each group and the judges will evaluate them to do a provisional ranking to separate the best riders.  This is done so that the best riders do not meet early in the competition and are placed on opposite sides of the ladder.

The competition will be based on the PKRA freestyle judging criteria’s and the winners will be chosen by official PKRA judges that work on the world tour.  The rankings in the heats will be chosen by overall impression.  This means that the winner of the heat will be the riders that can do the most technical tricks with power, style and a clean execution.

When we get closer to the final we will switch over to electronic judging that is done like on the PKRA world tour, where points are given for the maneuvers so that riders can see how they did for each manoeuver and how they can get better scores.
