correction: rider 1+2 per heat in round 1 will go into round 3, 3+4 of a heat into round 2, where they have a second chance.

my tip for rider 1+2 in round 1:

Heat No - winner:

1: Jesse Richman, Billy Parker
2: Steven Akkersdijk, Kevin de Smidt
3: Gianni Arragno, Ruben Lenten
4: Reno Romeu, Aaron Hadlow
5: Tom Hebert, Lewis Crathern
6: Kevin Langeree, Nick Jacobsen

What is your tip?

The rules:

http://redbullkingoftheair.com/the-rules/

It is like a "Dingles" elimination, where riders who lost in the first round have a second chance in the second round, while 1+2 of first round move into 3rd.

Round 1

Six heats of X min. with four riders
After X min. the worst rider gets flagged out
There will be one minute of transition time during the heat so riders and judges can get ready for 2nd half of the heat
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t go back to zero.
At the end of the heat the second worst gets flagged out
Top 2 advance to Round 3 while 3rd and 4th advance to Round 2

Round 2

Three heats of X min. with three riders
After X min. the worst rider gets flagged out
There will be one minute of transition time during the heat so riders and judges can get ready for 2nd half of the heat
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t get back to zero.
At the end of the heat the second worst gets flagged out
1’ place advance to Round 3

Round 3

Four heats of X min. with four riders
After X min. the worst rider gets flagged out
There will be one minute of transition time during the heat so riders and judges can get ready for 2nd half of the heat
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t get back to zero.
At the end the heat the second worst gets flagged out
1’ and 2’ place advance to Round 4/ semi final

Round 4 / Semi Final

Two heat of X min. with four riders.
After X min. the worst rider gets flagged out
There will be one minute of transition time during the heat so riders and judges can get ready for 2nd half of the heat
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t get back to zero.
At the end of the heat the second worst gets flagged out
1’ and 2’ place advance to final

Final

One heat of X min with four riders
After X min the second worst gets flagged out
There will be one minute of transition time during the heat so riders and judges can get ready for 2nd half of the heat
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t get back to zero.
The 3 finalists will compete till the end of the heat and results will only be given during the prize ceremony.


And thx to Ruben for listening to advice:
Scoring will be continued and scoring won’t go back to zero.

That was my only critics at KOTA 2014 to make it a perfect event.
In 2014 the riders keep repeating the same tricks over an over...much better like this! :thumb:

Toby - will you either pin this thread at the top or create a separate thread that says:

KOTA Live Heat Video Stream and Announcements

And post the link in there so we don't have to search through it in the thread list?

Thanks.
