BREAKDOWN OF EVENTS
One Hour Race
This is the main event. Put on your tightest shorts for this one. Racers will start en-masse and ride laps on the 2.5ish mile course for one hour. The winner will be the racer who completes the most laps in the shortest time over an hour with the final lap after the clock has ticked over the hour counting to the result
Kids and Costumes Race
For anyone who doesn’t want to ride laps until they puke, and for kids who want to get in on the racing action. Racers will start en-mass and ride one lap on the 2.5ish mile course. Prizes will be given to the fastest kids, as well as the best-costumed riders.
Dirt Jump Jam
The freestyle event will be rider-judged. Riders will drop one at a time in a session format, over the course of two hours. Get as many runs as you want in, and get creative. Riders will choose amongst themselves winners for Best Trick, Best Style, and the Spirit of Send awards. This year there will be new jumps and more official scoring PLEASE PRE-REGISTER FOR THE JUMP JAM THIS YEAR.
Queen and King of 5th Street
This is a totally original idea that no other mountain bike festival has. Basically we’ll crown overall winners of the event, based on combined race results and jump jam scoring. This is for the folks that blur disciplines, race NICA on enduro bikes and hit jumps on XC whips. It’s gonna be cool, I’ll make crowns and maybe huge novelty checks.
BREAKDOWN OF CATEGORIES
For the One Hour Race there will be five categories:
The “Fastest Lap” award will go to the competitor who, during either race puts down the quickest lap of the day.
There will be a J Mills “Legend of 5th Street” award. Last year Jay downed a beer every lap, still put up a respectable race showing, took a nap in his van, and then went and bought his wife a brand new Yeti. So this award will go to the person who drinks the most chocolate milk (or beer) and then does the best bike-related thing for their crush/partner right afterward.
All racing prizes will be awarded at 12:00. All Jump Jam Prizes will be awarded at 3 PM.
We have not yet finalized what these prizes will be. At the very least, they’ll be something cool enough that you want to put it on your desk at work
