Am and pro: two DIFFERENT COURSES

Post by Stefano Bellingeri » Tue Sep 16, 2008 4:53 pm

Hi everybody,
It is my personal opinion that if we decided to have two distinct cathegories then we need two different courses: one easier for Am and one really technical for Pro.
In my opinion it is necessary to have two cathegories, so we MUST have two different courses: always.

stefano
i think that depends on the quality of the course.
we set a hybrid in amsterdam which was challenging for both classes.
same happened in brixlegg.
if i remember correctly gburg had the same thing,correct me if i'm wrong
same goes for some gs courses too.

This is a good idea (to have different courses for Pro/AM/Jr/Women/Masters)
A) If needed (e.g. If there is a huge skill difference)
B) If the contest director so chooses

But I do not think it belongs in the rule book

I would like to apply this sort of rule only to Special TS and Straight TS. This makes sense since Pros are (or should be) technically more skilled / practised.

Whatever else type of course may be the same in all categories.

Real skateboard wheels come in green – ABEC11

Enjoy the ride – GOG Slalom & DH Trucks

I would like to apply it even to giant but may be it would to much time consuming for the organizers. For sure on special and tight.

that'xs also pretty much up to the organizer of the event and his decision i think
