Here’s the latest specific to women riders:

I want to encourage female riders to enter the Regional Qualifier’s (RQ), but it’s not the only route to being invited.

While it’s not mandatory to enter an RQ for a wildcard, entering is another opportunity to earn one. One wildcard to Huntington Beach will be awarded to the top scoring woman rider at each of the 3 stops.

The 2nd wildcard at each of the 3 stops will be decided upon after the event. It could go to the 2nd highest scoring woman, or to a rider from the demo. We’re keeping that flexible in order to get the best riders available invited to Huntington Beach.

Vans prefers a field of 20 female riders for Huntington Beach broken down as follows:

10 invitations will go out before the series starts.

The remaining 10 spots for women break down as follows:

2 Wildcards from Sydney stop  (1. the top scoring rider in the RQ, 2. TBD)

2 Wildcards from Malaga stop (1. the top scoring rider in the RQ, 2. TBD)

2 Wildcards from Guadalajara stop (1. the top scoring rider in the RQ, 2. TBD)

4 Wildcards TBD

Registration for Sydney is still open. The regional qualifiers are open to men and women (16 years and over) from anywhere in the world.
