AIR & STYLE - since 1993 - the world's premier stadium snowboarding competition - where the season's moments are made.
The Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck-Tirol 2012 consists of twoshow more parts: the Qualification, and the Main Contest. Twelve riders compete in the Qualification, consisting of two runs each, and receive a cumulative score from those two runs. The four riders with the highest cumulative scores qualify to compete in the Main Contest. The Main Contest runs in a head to head, single elimination format, with each rider getting three runs per round. The highest scoring run is the only score that counts toward winning the round. The challenging rider goes first in the first two runs of each round, but the rider holding the highest score for the round so far, goes first for the third run of the round. The head to head format leads to the final four riders competing in the Super Final, where these four riders compete for 1st through 4th place.show less
