- How will the first batch or racers be chosen?Vincent Tanguy wrote:Hi Corky,
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 !

There will be no start fee for this event. Same for all racers for both Linköping and Stockholm.Anton Nikulin wrote:Hi, Corky!
What about starting fee for the racers not pre-qualified for Superfinals? Both for the pre-qualification and for the race in Stockholm?
Great news Maria,Maria Carrasco wrote:Hello Corky and Thanks for starting this topic. I am working extensively with our USA team riders who are planning their travel to Europe for Worlds in Policka and some are planning to stay for the racing in Sweden - Super Final and Stockholm.
Richy Carrasco is confirmed to attend Super Final. Several are planning/considering to come to participate in the qualifying to hopefully earn a spot in the racing finals. We will be staying for the racing at Stockholm along with some of our group.
We would like to know as many details as possible about both competitions so we can get things finalized for travel, lodging, etc. Have the schedules been published yet? Will there be a racer hotel for Linkoping? Any tips, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Maria, we need qualifying for all on the day of the race to determine each persons ability now and on that specific course (GS, HS, TS etc). Pre-qualifying with fixed positions will cause really bizarre combinations and be completely unfair. We tried it in Morro Bay in 2002 and it was not working out.Maria Carrasco wrote:Why would pre-qualified racers need to go through qualifying for the racing events in Linkoping? I thought that was already decided (by being pre-qualified) and the rest of the slots were what the qualification process was for.
Normally yes, but if there's good attendance with high level, Niklas may make a last minute decision to extend that number to 24 (for example). The "guaranteed" position will then get you into that bracket, then you have to fight you're way through the H2H bracket as usual. You're just guaranteed to be part of the H2H racing.Maria Carrasco wrote:What is the # of riders that will be racing? 16?
Jani Soderhall wrote: Q1:
Hotel: Do pre-qualified racers actually need to make a booking at the hotel, or has that already been done?
A1: Pre-qualified racers have there rooms pre-booked ( From Aug 21 - Aug 24 )
Hotel: Which nights are paid for at the hotel: Wednesday + Thursday?
A2: Check-in Tuesday afternoon, Check-out Friday Morning
Is there a WhatsApp topic for the race?
A3: No WhatsApp topic
Is there a FB page for the race? (or shall we use the ISSA group for any last minute info and news?)
In Linköping (Wednesday & Thursday) it has been decided that also None-Pro skaters can enter. But those None-Pro results does not count towards the ranking. The None-Pro official events are all on Saturday & Sunday.Maria Carrasco wrote:Also, for the racers who qualify in at Linkoping who are not Pro - how does the rest of the racing in Stockholm work for them? IE - women, am, masters? I know the Pro events are on Friday only.
Thanks Anton! This location is correct for the registration and it's also the location of the finish line of both race days! GS will start higher up whereas the Tight Special will start further down.Anton Nikulin wrote:Can you post please the exact place where races (GS,TS) would be? (may be point on the map like https://www.google.com/maps/place/Stora ... 15.6215902 )
I personally don't know of this service, so I offer two alternatives:Anton Nikulin wrote:And may be a little information about the transfer? I.e. is it ok to look for transfer from Stockholm to Linköping on the site https://kopbiljett.resrobot.se/en ?
