Each rider has two 60 second rounds to combine as many tricks as possible and wow the judges and the crowd at Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow.
Judges score each round out of a possible 100 points and the highest total takes gold.
Points are awarded based on tricks (style, technique, variety, originality, degree of difficulty), hang time (the higher the jump, the higher the score… but the scarier the fall!), use of the park (taking unique lines, performing wall rides) and overall flow of the routine.
The smallest details will make the difference on the podium, from how fully riders extend their arms while performing look-mum-no-hands tricks to how sweetly they stick their landings.
Every rider dreams of the perfect run. But to bag 100 points, they have to show the judges something truly spectacular which includes totally new tricks that takes the sport to the next level.
There’s a good chance you’ll see exactly that at Kelvingrove Park.
