Swatch Skiers Cup 2015. Backcountry Slopestyle Heats


In each of the two disciplines of Big Mountain and Backcountry Slopestyle, one Team Europe rider will meet one Team Americas rider in a head-to-head competition format. All 18 riders will have two runs in each discipline, making a total of 36 heats with two riders in each.
To decide who meets whom in a heat, one of the the two team captains has his starting rider picked by draw, leaving the other captain the advantage of tactically deciding which of his riders will go head-to-head to the drawn rider. In the second heat the roles are reversed and so forth. This process has now been completed for the Backcountry Slopestyle event, giving the start list with the exciting heats you can see below.
The three international judges will work with the simplest scoring method possible judging from an overall perspective. In each heat they compare the two riders. A showing of a blue sign means a vote for best performance by a Team Europe rider, and a showing of a red sign means a vote for the Team Americas rider. The rider who has the votes from at least two judges wins the heat and is rewarded with 1 point for his team. The losing rider gets 0 points for his team. The team with the most of the 36 available points after both days of competition wins!
