Track

The track for the boardercross competition is about 600 meters long and wide enough to fit in four riders at the same time. As a special service a lift can be used to get on top again. Take a look at the two videos below to see the track in action at the German Open in 2014.



After the debut last year we’ll improve the track with crushed sand and the corners in the lower part to maintain the speed from the top until the finish line.

Process & Rules

The competition will be held on two days. On Friday there will be the qualification round followed by the final round and the freestyle session on Saturday.

Qualification
Each rider participating in the qualification round will have three runs in groups of four riders. Each rider will start in three different groups. Each rider gains points (1th place – 5 points, 2nd place – 3 points, 3rd place – 2 points, 4th place – 1 point) which will be summed up after the qualification round. To deal with the case when riders got the same amount of points, we’ll track the time for each ride and each rider as well (only the best time out of the three runs will be saved). If two riders got the same amount of points, the best time counts. After the qualification round the best 32 boarders are allowed to start in the final round.

Final round
The field of 32 boarders after the qualification round will be divided into four different groups:
· RED | 1th until 8th position of the qualification round
· BLUE | 9th until 16th position of the qualification round
· YELLOW | 17th until 24th position of the qualification round
· BLACK | 25th until 32nd position of the qualification round

Riders from the RED group are allowed to choose their start position first, followed by BLUE, YELLOW and BLACK. Each run will have one rider of each group. The competition begins with the round of sixteen. The best two riders of each run go on into the next round until the final run.

Freestyle
There’ll be a Freestyle jam session after the boardercross competition where all riders got 45 minutes to perform their best tricks which will be judged. The riders with the best trick (landed), the highest flip and the grab with the best style will win a little price – like a date with Jomo or something like that 😉

Public transport

Großerlach can be reached using public transport by train and by bus. The train station is in a town called „Sulzbach (Murr)“ (yes, only great german names you’ll need to learn!) and is about 7 kilometers away from Großerlach. From Sulzbach it’s possible to get to Großerlach by bus.

There will be signs in Großerlach showing you the way to the event location because the address isn’t 100% correct.
