JUDGING CRITERIA: EXTREME BIG AIR and OVERALL IMPRESSION:
Judges will look at following categories: Extreme Big Air and Overall Impression.
The Overall Impression of the Extreme Big Air performance scores will be determined by combining:
70% Height. Go as hard and high as possible. The height in combination with extreme moves is priority, but we will also take the horizontal distance travelled in account, combined with certain powered moves
30% Extremity. Controlled extreme high moves. Think about extremely powered and/or extremely technical, or ultimately a combination of this as long as it is performed on a proper height.
No limitation in maximum number of moves/combinations attempts per heat (including crashes) or repetitions for the same jump. - Only the 3 best tricks of the whole performance will be counted and will form part of the final result.
Variety within your best 3 moves is a key-factor, as focus is to prize the most complete “Extreme Big Air” rider.
A 4th score (unique score) for overall impression of the entire performance will be given at the end of the heat, this score will be determined by considering a combination of different factors as: technical difficulty / style / variety / execution / risk / show / innovation, this will be added to the total score (could make the difference)
The average of these 4 scores that weigh evenly will be the final score.
