FormatEdit

The Competition is separated into 3 competitive tiers - Beginner, Intermediate (or 'Amateur') and Pro (or 'Advanced'). Each competitor has a 60 second run which is observed by 3 judges. Each judge rates each riders' run out of 100 points. Each rider is usually Judged on Style, Consistency, Amplitude, Originality and Trick Difficulty. Once these points are decided, the lowest score out of the 3 is dropped and an final score for each rider is determined.
