CONFERENCE RULE BOOK



PROPER PASSAGE OF GATES

Single Pole Hiking Rule Video Racers and Gatekeepers should watch this video to learn the rule about hiking around a single pole gate.
Please note that the first and last gates will always be double pole gates, and in SL there will be a few additional double pole gates (fancy names: flush, hairpins, delays).
With double pole gates the racer's boots need to cross the plane between two poles that are the same color. They can cross in either direction. Over and back is okay, too, for double pole gates.
Double Pole Faults - Incorrect Passage
Double Pole Hiking - Correct Passage
