Structural change so it's clearer. Thanks to Jenni for the text.
The final battles will consist of up to the 16 highest-scoring riders. To decide on the number, the judges will vote. A simple majority is needed to decide whether 4, 8, or 16 riders will advance. However, a number other than 4, 8, or 16 may be chosen if the judges unanimously agree that a diﬀerent number would be more conducive to the goal of producing the most exciting battles for riders and spectators. In this case, byes would be used for this group to fit the next largest bracket (for example, 11 riders would use the 16 rider bracket, and the top 5 riders would get a bye for the first round of battles).
The highest-scoring competitors from the preliminary round proceed onto the final battles. The number of competitors that move onto the finals is determined by a vote from the judges, but it cannot be more than 16 riders. Only a simple majority is needed for the vote. If a number of other 4, 8 or 16 is chosen, byes are used to expand the group of rider to the next largest bracket. (E.g. 11 riders would use the 16 rider bracket and the top 5 riders would have a bye for the first round of battles)
