interesting new kind of races. I will surely take part into it if qualified. The questions I could have would be the following :
- How will the first batch or racers be chosen ?
- On which kind of course will the last 4 be able to qualify ?

And please make us an exciting giant course !

Vincent.


- How will the first batch or racers be chosen?
Pre-qualified will be a selection taking into account world rankings and maybe also country if needed.
Niklas Hyland and city of Linköping will be in charge of the final selection.
I see myself as an aid to bring forward the list of ordered racers according to that limitation list that exists for the world ranking.
The limitation list has a specified set of rules of how to list racers when wanting to have a limited start list for an event.
Now, this race is not a 100% strict limited field for PRO racers since 25% of the spots are open for pre-qualification.
We have not had this specific situation before so there are no strict rules of how to handle such a situation.
But the selection will be based on the limitation list but there could be a few exceptions.
The limitation list is taking into account ranking and results from 2017 and before. Pre-selected racers will need to know well in advance.
We will try and publish this list as quickly as possible so that everybody can see and prepare with tickets as early as possible. And so we can also make sure the pre-selected PRO racers can attend.

- On which kind of course will the last 4 be able to qualify?
Not decided yet. It could be the real course.
And if so it will also be open for the pre-qualified to test.

- Please make us an exciting giant course!
Since the GS course (and same for the Special) will be made for the Pro class it gives you a lot more freedom to create a challenging course.
But already the factors of having the hill in the middle of the town and running this GS as a parallel race will make it exciting.
It's not yet decided who will set the courses.

Viking Hadestrand wrote:How exactly will the disciplines count for prize money, rankings and overall


PRO class disciplines
2 for prize money (GS and Tight Special counted together on Thursday. Tie breaker Tight Special)
3 for the ranking (GS, Tight Special and Straight will count with Main points towards the World Ranking)
4 for event overall (All pro disciplines: GS, Tight special, Straight and Banked Slalom)

All other class disciplines
(Straight, Banked och Special)
(No prize money)
3 for the ranking
3 for the overall

It's only the pro class that has a complicated setup for this event with two towns involved.
Note! Even if other than PRO racers are invited to qualify for the two pro disciplines in Linköping they will not get any world ranking points for these pro races.

What about starting fee for the racers not pre-qualified for Superfinals? Both for the pre-qualification and for the race in Stockholm?


There will be no start fee for this event. Same for all racers for both Linköping and Stockholm.
