Rules/Scoring:
This contest will be broken into four sessions. In the first session each skater will have two runs. At the end of the first session the judges will rank the riders from 1-10, then assign each rider a score from 1-100, based on aggressive execution of maneuvers: content - the number, difficulty, originality and variety of tricks successfully performed; stylethe fluid linking of individual tricks; and, the use of the course and course obstacles, such as ramps, boxes, handrails, etc. These two runs will be followed by three 15-minute jam sessions where all competitors will focus on one specific feature of the course. Each skater can hit the feature as many times as they choose in the allotted time. Judges again rank the riders 1-10 and assign each rider a session score from 1-100. The four session scores are combined and divided by four to give each skater an overall score. Skaters are ranked 1-10 on the Finals leader board.
