The Rx division is open to anyone to register. For athletes from Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands there is a special division that refers to the origin of the Lowlands Throwdown: the Benelux division.
The Benelux division is a subdivision of the RX division. For the final event, the RX division will be filled first. After that, the Benelux division will be filled with only Benelux athletes from the Rx division for the final.
More information about the Benelux division can be found in article 2.4 ‘Benelux subdivision’ and article 3.1 ‘Qualification by the online qualifier’ of the Rulebook.
Article 2.4 of the Rulebook states:
“2.4 Benelux Sub-division
The men and women in Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands have a special regional division that refers to the origin of the Lowlands Throwdown. Only the Benelux sub-division under the RX division can qualify for the following event.
Athletes who live (official residents) in this region can participate in this subdivision. Errors in choosing the appropriate sub-division may result in the disqualification of an athlete. For any questions concerning sub-division selection, please contact email@example.com PRIOR to the registration deadline.
This sub-leaderboard is only made up with athletes from this sub-division and can therefore give a different result than the overall leaderboard for a division.”
Article 3.1 of the Rulebook states:
“3.1 Qualification by the online qualifier
The Benelux division is a subdivision of the RX division. Athletes are placed in the Benelux division after the RX division is filled in. An athlete from the Benelux region in a qualifying position for the RX division cannot qualify for the Benelux division. Due to the backfill process, it is possible that an athlete from the Benelux division slides into the RX division. This slided athlete can not opt to remain in the Benelux division.
