Event Registration and category split
FWQ riders have to register online on the FWT website www.freerideworldtour.com for all FWQ events. Registrations will around 7 weeks prior to the event and will close around 4 weeks before the event.
For all FWQ 2*, 3* and 4* events, riders will be accepted bades on their current seeding list ranking. For FWQ 1* events, a first-come first-serve inscription system will be used.
Riders will receive a confirmation email that they are selected or not for the event they registered for. (4 weeks before the event). Riders can cancel their registration at any time and at no cost before the registration period finishes. Once registration closes, invited riders then have 3 days to cancel their inscription if they do not wish to compete. Past 3 days, credit cards will be debited and the rider will be inscribed and confirmed. If a rider cancel his registration, the next rider on the list (seeding list or date), who tried to register, will receive an email confirming that he has 3 days to cancel his registration. The same process will repeat itself until the event is full.
Depending on the number of spots available per event, an even percentage of riders who tried to register will be confirmed for the event. If a category has hardly enough registrations to have the minimum number of riders at the start, a higher percentage of riders from this category will be accepted.
If a category doesn’t reach the minimum number of registrations (for example 8 SNB W registered for 10 spots), the event organizer shall distribute the remaining spots to the other categories. If a category doesn’t reach a minimum of 4 registrations, the category is cancelled and the starting spots will be redistributed to the other categories (see chapter “Cancelled Categories”).
If the event is not full once the normal registration period ends, all registered riders will be invited and registrations will be re-opened. Riders inscribing during this period will be confirmed right away and credit cards will be debited immediately until the event is full. In that case, riders will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis and no longer according to the seeding list ranking.
