CLIF Speed & Style Rotorua presented by Mons Royale

The Mons Royale Speed & Style Rotorua puts riders against each other, battling the course, their opponent and the clock as they try to execute the most stylish run possible, while maximizing speed. Combining elements of Dual Slalom and Slopestyle, Speed & Style challenges athletes to out-race and out-trick their opponent in this head-to-head format. Each racer earns style points from a panel of judges, with the rider who crosses the line first earning an additional time credit.

Event Information & Formats

Pro Invitational

Format and Rules:

Qualifications (Seeding Run): 2 runs, all riders racing the same course, with Speed and Style. Best run, based on run time and Time Bonus Deductions, counts.

Round of 32 and Finals use a double-elimination format with one run on each course. The winner of these head-to-head heats is chosen based on the rider's time and performance on the features, or their tricks.

16 riders will advance to the Finals in the live broadcast

Time Bonus Deduction
Each course will have two identical judged features/jumps. A Time Bonus Deduction will be available per each feature (maximum Time Bonus Deduction is 1.5 seconds/jump). Tricks will be worth a percentage of the total available Time Bonus Deduction, based on trick difficulty. The maximum differential for the timed portion of the race will be 3.5 seconds. A rider will not have a time higher than this amount and will still have their tricks subtracted from this maximum. If both competitors are tied after the second run the competitor who wins the second run advances to the next round

Course: Dual courses built in Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park
