How should Street Freestyle competition work?
This thread is about the birth of a Street Freestyle competition event. There are three pictures here:
1. Should we call it Street Freestyle, or something else?
2. The immediate need is to get something concocted real quick, so riders can get familiar with the idea in time for competition at MUni Weekend on Sept. 19. We'll need to develop a set of rules, no matter how basic, while I work to get a detailed idea of what the performing space will include, and how big the paved part will be.
3. The longer-term goal is to replace the Open-X event at USA and IUF competitions with something that's more interesting and successful. The Open-X event finally worked pretty well this last time, at Unicon XII, but it still seems to be missing a non-flat riding surface, and it should be open to Trials unicycles because it's aimed at a lot of people who ride them. This means it needs to be outside (or in a gym nobody really cares about).
So while we may put something simple together for MUni Weekend, the goal is to figure out a full-fledged event for future large unicycle competitions. And small.
So what do you think?
BTW, if you want to know what Open-X is, it's one of the artistic events in those two rulebooks linked below. If you read about Open-X, best to read about Freestyle as well, to get some background. That's the event it was derived from.
