In a new format which is unique to the Vans Wängl Tängl, a ‘Team Format Judging System' that scores all riders in a single run as one score will be employed. This will encourage and reward tech, style, creativity in the run and allow the riders to coordinate their run to maximise points.
This system complements a team format by allowing riders to focus on their individual strengths within the multiple line/ multi feature Vans Penken Park finishing in the famous Red Bull End Section.

In a new twist riders will be given 3 'Judge Me' cards, so they will be able to decide when they are ready to drop in for a judged run. For example, if they are consistently putting down a sick run in practise they can decide that the next run will be their judged run by cashing in a card with the Judges. This alleviates the pressure on the riders making for a more relaxed contest than the norm. With this new format we are bound to see the riders taking it to new levels as they will be not only working as a team but will be in a better mind set that other contests.

The infamous Red Bull end section with last years winners Team 96- now Team 99!
