BRC AREA 12 TOPSCORE
What is the area 12 Topscore Competition?
The course will consist of 12 obstacles, each of which must be capable of being jumped both directions. Fences 1-11 will be built to differing heights and each will carry a points value ranging from 20-120. The 12th fence will be a joker fence worth 200 points.
Each rider has 60 seconds the competitor chooses which obstacle to jump and may do so in either direction. Any fences knocked down do not score and are not rebuilt. Each obstacle may be jumped twice to score- jumping over a knocked or twice jumped fence does not incur elimination but does not score.
The bell is rung upon reaching 60 secs and the competitor must then cross the finishing line in any direction for their time to be recorded.
The joker can be jumped twice to score, if jumped clear 200 points will be added each time, but if knocked down 200 points are deducted, in the event of an equality of marks the fastest time will decide.
The full rules are available on line in the 2013 rulebook, this is an individual competition with the three best individuals qualifying from each class, these three riders will form an area team at the final at RWHS. Look forward to your entries.
