What you see is a compilation of my movement resarch about falling. Some of my most beautiful UPDs Unplanned Dismounts that just look unplanned. This show counts 74 dismounts.

Why this show will lose at unicycle competitions
This piece is not designed to lose, but it is willing to lose. It does not try to stick to rules of the rulebook in order to be more authentic and real about losing.
Have a look through the IUF rulebook 2015 with me. That’s what judges will see in this performance. Even if judges really like the performance, they should look closely to the following rules.
Over Time and repetitive
6.20.1 Artistic Freestyle Events
… Any figures or performing that are done after the end of the time limit will not be judged Performing past the time limit will reduce the rider’s score... However, a routine that is boring, repetitive or ‘padded’ may lose points for being too long.
Originality and new Skills
This performance shows lots of new movement.
In Artistic Freestyle, new skills are less important than in Flatland. However, skills with unique variations that are completely new or with new approaches will get more points. Originality is mainly judged in Presentation.
Style and Quality of Riding
Mastery is the amount of control shown by the rider(s) during their execution of the skills and transitions. The body form should demonstrate good control and Mastery of the unicycle…Stability:High scores should not be given if unintentional jerky body movement, or a wandering spin or pirouette is shown occasionally.
Dismounts and Falling
74 dismounts will not be without effect in this category.
6.26.1 Mistakes: DismountsLow scores are given for routines with more than 8 major dismounts, therefore interrupting the flow of the routine.
