whats happening with opens, will there be qualifying on the first day like everything else? i only ask cause i can see anything about open qualifying

Mark Brimson 02:07 09/Oct/08

From what I know, the full open comp will only be on the second day.

It is all the smaller kids getting going that will take the time so that is on the first day by itself, so they will have finals for kids and then the open comp on the second day.

If you had won or came a place at any of the other comps, then you are automatically through to the Sunday comp anyway. Only those who are younger and didn't make any of the other comps have to qualify in the Saturday comp.

That said, others can still come along and have a roll too.

CORE comp is on this weekend.

Just in case there was any confusion, this is a separate comp to the first two. Anyone can still enter, but the younger skaters need to go on Sat to go through qualifying from 2pm in the afternoon (bmx is in the morning), then they have their final on Sunday.

For the open comp, anyone can enter on Sunday for the initial comp, then they will go through to the final, which is right after, which also includes any place getters from the previous comps too.

Then the overall winner will get $500 cash thanks to Simbyotik, as well as a lot of other product for other comp places.
