The format may vary slightly for each individual age group or category. Most groups will have two runs and some may have a third run which is essentially a best trick.
Each rider’s best run plus their best trick (if applicable) will count towards their score out of 100 possible points.
Judges will consider:
- Variety of tricks
- Control of the tricks
- Difficulty of tricks
- Amplitude / Height
- Use of course
- Risk Factor
Riders will lose points for tricks not landed or mistakes made. These could include: landing flat, casing, sliding out, dabbing a foot down, stopping during a run, crashing off the bike.
The earlier in a run that a mistake is made the more it may impact the score.
All judges scores will be added together and averaged out in order to get a riders final score.
In the event of a tie, the rider that ranks highest with most judges will be placed higher.
