2017 Freestyle Qualifier League event

In addition to the WKL Freestyle Elite League event that will be held at Mondial du Vent from April 11 to Arpil 17 2017, Leucate will be host to the Qualifier League event for the 2017 WKL Freestyle Elite League. In this Qualifier event riders that are not yet pre-qualified can compete for a spot on the 2017 Freestyle Elite League Tour.

The 2017 Qualifier League event will be organized to determine which riders qualify for the 2017 Elite League tour. All non qualified riders will have to enter to have a chance to participate in the tour this year. The top 14 men and top 7 women riders from the 2016 WKL tour are already pre-qualified and do not need to register for this Qualifier event.

There are 9 open spots for men in the 2017 Freestyle Elite Tour schedule, and 4 spots for women. This will be the only qualifier event for the 2017 tour. In the course of 2017 two additional qualifier events will be organized for placement in the Elite league 2018 tour.

Riders that reach the top 9 for men and top 4 for women in this Qualifier League event, will have to join the complete 2017 Freestyle Elite Tour, by participating in all the events of the tour. Together with the pre-qualified riders, they will make up the 36 participants of the Tour.

The 2017 Qualifier League event will be held in Leucate, France at the event site of the Mondial du Vent event, and will start on April 10. The duration of the qualifier event depends on the number of registrants and has yet to be determined. The qualifier event will run until there is a result who are the 9 qualified men and 4 qualified women.
