more details coming soon. The organisation is currently dealing best hotel prices for competitors, and preparing further surprises.
The IFSA will present the next season rules updates during the board meeting 14th October 2006. Meanwhile next competition is coming soon, and skaters will need to prepare runs. Here are some updates of the rules which are impacting the way to prepare the next competition:
- Management Mark : a new family, spinning tricks, is being introduced : on 1 or 2 wheels (for inlineskates), turning minimum twice (720°)
- Management Mark : Eagle and Reverse Eagle will be together : including no combined tricks.
- 120cm slalom will have only 14 cones (instead of 20cones as it used to be). This slalom meant to be performed fast, suffered from the lack of space on competition areas, as well as training areas.
- the whole updates will be presented the 14th October 2006
The November competition is cancelled. The organisers judged that the conditions were not met for a successful competition.
An update will follow.
