individual freestyle

A question about individual freestyle has come up to me, that I couldn’t figure
out at the IUF-rules: Is it allowed to involve a second (or even a third and
more) person, supposed he is not riding a unicycle himself? I think of
piggy-back riding, handing in clubs or anything in this way. I wonder if anyone
could give any advice.

Regards, Wolfgang

In an individual freestyle routine any amount of people can be used in the
performance. They are just considered ‘props’ and the judges are supposed to
treat them as any other props that are used in the routine. For example if I
were to put someone on my shoulders in an individual routine the judges should
give me credit on the skill involved but the person on my shoulders is
considered a prop. There is no limit to the number of people that are used, the
judges are only judging the competitor.

Hope that answers your question.
