«The Riders Cup competition is a reflection of how the top riders have pushed the fastest sport on skates to the next level– some athletes build their own tracks in partnerships with local ski resorts and organizations. The Riders Cup events are organized “by riders for riders” and are part of the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship. The Riders Cup events are held, for the most part, in the vicinity of the major stops and they are designed, built and organized by the host riders themselves on their home courses. Besides a separate Riders Cup ranking, the participants of the Riders Cup can also earn valuable points for the Ice Cross Downhill World Championship with the winner of each race collecting 250 points in the overall World Championship – in other words 25 percent of the 1,000 points awarded to the winners of the major stops.»(1)
