COMPETITION FORMAT

As the Team Americas and Team Europe, Team Captains, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa (USA) and Richard Permin (FRA) and their handpicked 7 team riders are stepping into the final preparation phase for the Skiers Cup intercontinental freeskiing Face Off battle, let us give you a recap on the rules and format :
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 16 riders will have two runs in each discipline, making a total of 32 heats with two riders in each.

To decide who meets whom in a heat, one of the two captains will be picked by draw to be the first one to select his starting rider, while the other will have the advantage of tactically deciding which of his riders will go head-to-head with him. In the second heat the roles will be reversed and so forth.

Experienced judges will compare the two riders of a heat and score them on a very simple scale. They show a blue card as a vote for best performance by a Team Europe rider. A red card for best performance from 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.
