  2. Agenda Rules Risk Management Case Studies Race Quality General Discussion 2

  3. 2010-2011 ALPINE RULE CHANGES & PRECISIONS 3

  4. ALPINE RULES The current Printed Alpine ICR is 2008 No FIS Printing until 2012 Web Version contains all changes to Antalya – June 2010 Very limited Precisions Fall changes to be confirmed by Council Nov 6th 4

  5. ICR corrections 2010 English Language work group changes included in Web Version No alteration to intent – hopefully adds clarity 2010 mostly minor changes 5

  6. ICR Corrections 2010 602.1.4.1 The development of a TD is: - Applicant - Observer at National Level FIS races - Oral entrance examination - Written entrance examination - Candidate - Practical Assessment (Speed Downhill Event) - Practical TD examination (technical eventGiant Slalom or Slalom acting as TD) - TD The FIS recommends that the National Ski Associations apply a maximum age limit of 40 for applicants and 65 years for TD's (qualifying date: 1st July). 6

  7. ICR Corrections 2010 602.1.5.2 The applicant must be nominated by his respective NSA. First Year ....... Second Year ........ As a Candidate Is assigned under the supervision of a TD Examiner (from another country) to a: - Practical assessment (speed Downhill event) - Practical examination (technical eventGiant Slalom or Slalom and acting as the TD) - Complete ......... 7

  8. ICR Corrections 2010 605.6 The times of the forerunners should not be published. 801.2.4 Number of Direction Changes (number of direction changes by rounding up or down of the decimals): Olympic Winter Games, FIS World Ski Championships and World Cup - 30% to 35% of the vertical drop, +/- 3 direction changes FIS, Continental Cup, Entry League races and Children competitions: - 30% to 35% of the vertical drop +/- 3 direction changes 8

  9. ICR Corrections 2010 804.3 Where there is no outside pole, both feet and ski tips must have passed the turning pole on the same side, following the natural race line of the slalom. The natural race line is an imaginary line from turning pole to turning pole, which the racer has to cross. If the racer has not correctly passed the natural raceimaginary line from turning pole to turning pole and does not follow the natural race line, then he has to climb back up and pass around the missed turning pole. Where there is an outside pole (first and last gate, delayed gate, and combinations (hairpin, vertical) art. 661.4.1. is valid. 9

  10. Language Differences 804.3 Where there is no outside pole, both feet and ski tips must have passed the turning pole on the same side, following the natural race line of the slalom. If the racer has not correctly passed the imaginary line from turning pole to turning pole and does not follow the natural race line, then he has to climb back up and pass around the missed turning pole. Where there is an outside pole (first and last gate, delayed gate, and combinations (hairpin, vertical) art. 661.4.1. is valid. 804.3 En l’absence de piquet extérieur, les deux pieds et les deux spatules des skis du compétiteur doivent avoir contourné le piquet pivot du même côté, déterminé par la ligne de course naturelle du slalom. Si celui-ci n‘a pas franchi correctement la ligne imaginaire la plus courte allant d’un piquetpivot à l’autre, il doit alors remonter la pente et contourner le piquet pivot du côté approprié. L’article 661.4.1 s’applique pour le franchissement des portes à deux piquets (pour la première, la dernière porte, les bananes et les combinaisons de portes verticales).

  12. ICR Corrections 2010 1001.1.4 Entry League Races (ENL) Men - 350 m - 500 m 1001.3.4 The Super-G must be set as follows (number of direction changes by rounding up or down of the decimals): For FIS level events 7% of the vertical drop equals the minimum number of direction changes. For OWG, WSC, WJC and COC level events 6% of the vertical drop equals the minimum number of direction changes. The distance between the turning poles of two successive gates must be at least 25 m (exception: art. 1003.1.1). Children's competitions: minimum 8%, maximum 10% direction changes of the vertical drop. Entry League (ENL) Men: minimum 7% of the vertical drop 1210.7 Team competitions may be conducted for Children’s competitions. Such team competitions should be described as «Specifications for Team Competitions for Children» 12

  13. ICR Changes 2010 215 Entries 215.2 National Ski Associations are not permitted to enter and draw the same competitors in more than one competition on the same date. Note: This proposed change is under considerable debate and may not be accepted. Concern is the impact upon Organisers and quota 13

  14. ICR Changes 2010 604.3 Team Captains Meetings and Draw In accordance with ICR 213.4 and 216 the time and location of the first team captain’s meeting and of the draw must be shown in the programme. An actual meeting, attended in person by team captains, jury, and race officials is an inseparable part of the competition and is important for communication of jury instructions, support of the OC, OC requests and information as well as a critical element for risk management and liability related matters. ICR 216 and 217 apply in all cases. 14

  15. ICR Changes 2010 611.3.2.2 Photo Finish A Photo Finish System may be used to determine a competitor´s finish time. In case of a failure of system “A” and “B”, and where the competition has been recorded by the Photo Finish System, this time must be used in place of hand-timing using a correction factor. The correction factor is the difference between the time taken by the Photo Finish System and the electronic times (where possible) of the 3 competitors before the missed time. Where there is not 3 previous competitors then the time of a competitor(s) immediately after the missed time can be used. The sum of the 3 (or less) time differences divided by 3 (or less) is applied to the photo finish time of the competitor without electronic time. The photo finish time is taken when any part of the competitor´s body first crosses the finish line. The photo finish result is to be provided to the Jury only. 15

  16. ICR Changes 2010 806.2 Limitations in the Second Run The Jury has the right to reduce the number of competitors for the second run to half on the first run start list. The decision has to be made no later than one hour before the start of the first run. The Jury has the right to reduce the number of competitors in the second run to half, provided that notice was given in the invitation or on the official notice board before the race started, and at the team captain's meeting before the draw. 906.2 Limitations in the Second Run The Jury has the right to reduce the number of competitors for the second run to half on the first run start list. The decision has to be made no later than one hour before the start of the first run. 16

  17. ICR Changes 2010 904 Single Gate Giant Slalom All rules of the ICR are valid, except as follows:  904.1 Single Gate Giant Slalom is permitted only in International FIS level Competitions (see art 201.3.4, 201.3.4 and 201.3.6)  904.2 A Single Gate Giant Slalom has no outside gate, except for the first and the last gate and delayed gates.  904.3 Where there is no outside gate, both feet and ski tips must have passed the turning pole of the turning gate on the same side, following the natural race line of the giant slalom. If the racer has not correctly passed the imaginary line from turning pole to turning pole and does not follow the natural race line, then he has to climb back up and pass around the missed turning gate. Where there is an outside gate (first and last gate, delayed gate) art. 661.4.1. is valid. 904.4 All rules and regulations dealing with the width of the course should be considered, as if there is an imaginary outside gate. 17

  18. Classifications 18
