ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

Welcome to the launch of the perpetual ASRA Downhill Rankings. 2010 has seen an explosion of downhill races throughout Australia, so from this moment on we're going to start collating the results and officially ranking all downhill riders in Australia.

We will start the rankings from January 1, 2011, which means the winner of the first race next year will become the No. 1 ranked rider in Australia, at least for a little while. Subsequent races will be added, and once 12 months have passed we will start removing older results to ensure that only a rider's pervious 12 months results are included.

 

Which races are included?

There are four categories of races that will be included:

  1. IGSA World Cup in Australia - ie, Newton's Nation.
  2. IGSA/ASRA Australian Nationals - the IGSA limits these to one per year, and ASRA is currently in negotiations for an ASRA/IGSA Nationals in 2011.
  3. Australian Regionals - includes all legit (non-outlaw) downhill races in Australia
  4. Outlaws - the more people that attend your event, the more ranking points they are worth.

Only downhill races are included - no push races, carpark races, ditch races or slalom races.

 

Which people are included?

We'll collate rankings for:

 

I'm organising a race, and I want it to be included in the rankings. What do I do?

Do these things:

  1. Create a public event for your race on this website at least one month in advance.
  2. Run the race. There must be a minimum of 16 racers for skateboard races and 8 for luge races.
  3. Within one week of the end of the race, post the results on the Event page, along with a Podium Picture, and a short report on the event.
    The results must include:
  • Racer's first name (no nicknames!)
  • Racer's last name (no nicknames!)
  • Racer's date of birth
  • Racer's place in race.

    4 Send the results to asra@skateboardracing.org.au

We encourage you to use the results spreadsheet when you send us your results.

Note: ASRA reserve the right to exclude a race for any reason. Significant doubts over the credibility/fairness of the results would necessitate excluding a race.

No Juniors. We'd like to, and we probably will at some point in the future, but the plan is to start relatively simple and avoid dealing with keeping track of people's dates of birth. The groms will have to measure themselves against the big boys and girls.

How will the points work if people race in both luge and buttboard at the same event?

Rad one ASRA! 

Don't worry Benbro you're still at the top of the Oz Outlaw Nationals!

Should clarify, the OON will run thru to the end of the season (April) and winners will be determined just from OON races. However OON race points from races next year will still be counted into this ranking system. 

Pretty much just want to run the OON through to the end of the season then this ranking system will be it.
