Next what makes a good road race? A big field helps. So we’re doing 1 big road race each (Open & Women waves only) and 2 different price points. The top guns are in for $45 PAY TO PLAY. And we have lower fees for our $25 SPARRING PARTNERS . We need you to drive the speed “en mass”. And if you get blown out, just race amongst your peers.

TERMS & CONDITIONS OF PAYOUT: We will score top 20 by video, so please place numbers on the left and upper back sideways. No timing chips, sorry. Payout is based on 25 riders registered and paid in at the PAY TO PLAY $45 price point. If below 25 PAY TO PLAY rider count, 50% of paid in goes to prize pool (minus $5 insurance per rider deducted). SPARRING PARTNER registrations will cover overhead, permit fees, staff and donation to the school. Can a Sparring Partner get top 3 and get paid? YES, it’s a race, but we’ll garnish your payout by 50% since you didn’t pay into the race kitty.
