LSERSA Summer Series
LSRESA runs a summer series each year. Race format is:
- three individual slalom runs
- three individual head-to-head dual slaloms
- club- and fun-team dual slaloms
Provisional race day schedule is:
|08:00||Race office opens for bib issue|
|09:45||Start of first individual runs; followed by|
|Club and scratch (fun) teams|
Trophies are awarded at each event for top three in age group, based on combined best two times from the individual slalom runs.
There are also overall trophies for each group for the season. This is based on points, which are earned based on age-group position at each individual race, together with the individual head-to-heads. A racer must score points in three races to be eligible for the overall, and points are taken from the best four events.
We wish to remind all racers, coaches, parents and spectators that appropriate personal conduct is expected at all LSERSA events. Whilst a competitive atmosphere is to be encouraged, inappropriate or unsportsmanlike behaviour will not be tolerated and can ultimately lead to sanctions, including suspension from LSERSA events. Examples of such behaviour include: equipment abuse, swearing, aggressive behaviour, discrimination of any form, heated arguments, disrespect shown to any official or volunteer. All LSERSA events are "family friendly" environments with appropriate behaviour to be demonstrated at all times.
Please note that minimum appropriate equipment and clothing rules apply at LSERSA races. You must wear suitable protection for your arms and legs including long trousers, long sleeve shirt, which must cover the midriff, and gloves. Helmets must be worn, and these must comply as a minimum to EN1077 (with a visible marking as such) and be in good condition without signs of damage. Add-on items such as camera mounts, or protruding edges, spoilers or visors are not permitted. LSERSA advise the use of the manufacturers' approved chin guard when racing through full gates. Ski poles with a diameter of less than 15mm must be fitted with suitable tip protectors to increase the tip diameter to 15mm. These requirements are compulsory for all racers in all groups.
The protective qualities of all safety helmets and face guards are affected by age and use. Some older helmets and face guards that have been damaged either in racing by a fall or by other impact may no longer provide sufficient protection — even if there are no visible indications of damage. LSERSA neither specifies nor makes warranties as to the fitness for use of any particular ski helmet or face guard nor assumes any responsibilities or duties to any competitor by requiring the use of a helmet or face guard. For more information see The British Ski and Snowboard Guide to Helmets for Alpine Racing.
