This year's FISE Montpellier Flatland organizers Matthias and Alex emailed us all the details you'll need to know. The pro qualification is on friday evening, amateur qualification on saturday and the finals on sunday. The flatland area will be located at the same spot than last years, in the middle of the festival! Prize money: 5000€ (6500US$)
12 riders make the cut from qualifications. They will fight for the F.I.S.E title in a one to one battle "Red Bull Circle of Balance" style. Each riders has his own cloc. and can use his time (2min) the way he wants. Example: riders A starts his combo. His clock starts. When riders A finishes his combo, he raises his hand. His clock stops while riders B clocks starts. Rider B has to start his combo as quick as possible so he doesn't waste his time. When rider B is done riding, he raises his hand so his clock stops and riders A clock starts. etc etc. When there is only 10 sec left on the clock, riders can't stop their time anymore, and they have to finish their combo before the buzzer. Any tricks not completed after the buzzer will not count. The decision will be made by the judges with flags (black and red). The riders who win make it to the semi final. The riders who lose is automatically out. Same system for the semi-final but 2min 30 on the clock.
