This year's judges are:


Chris Lawrence
Scott Hart
Aaron Chase
Randy Spangler
Paul Rak


Upon talking to the head judge Chris Lawrence, this is how they tell us that the riders will be evaluated
:


The categories are:

-Line difficulty
-Fluidity
-Style/technique
-Air/amplitude
-Each judged out of 25

Judges confer and determine line score after each run, this score is the same for every judge for each run. Then judges decide individually on remaining 3 categories. Crash means automatic fail in fluidity category (you can't crash and win), Semenuk won last time with a low line score, but killed it in everything else. Some guys like Atherton are railing fast, but style is low cause they don't have sick tricks. You need to put together an all around visually stunning run. Overall impression is paramount.



From all of us here at Pinkbike, we are super excited for the event and wish all the athletes good luck and be safe out there!
