I was recently contacted by Jeff Prosa (njmuni) who offered to hold a High Jump competition at Rays on Saturday night, which I think is a great idea!
I had also been considering adding a new event in order to take advantage of the new slalom course that was built at Rays… and hold a Coker slalom race!
Thus, I would like to announce two additional competitions that will be held concurrently with the Rolling Trials competition (we’ll probably start the events sooner in order to have more time, even if it’s on a non-exclusive basis for the first few hours)
High Jump Contest
There will be a high bar that the rider will have to hop over. Each competitor gets 3 tries at a particular height and if they clean it, they get scored for that height. If the rider faults on all 3 tries at a particular height, their last successful height is chosen as their final score.
Coker Slalom Race
This is a race against the course and the clock. Fastest time with no UPDs wins!
There will be plenty of time to clean the sections in the Rolling Trials competition, so while you are competing at Rolling Trials you can grab your Coker (or mine or one of your buddies) and take a break from Rolling Trials and have a go at the slalom course.
For more information on Rolling Trials, refer to the following thread:
2nd Annual Rolling Trials Competition – Rays MTB, Cleveland: April 8, 2006
Please respond to this thread if you plan to attend and indicate which events you plan to compete in.
So far the Rolling Trials competitors are:
hell-on-wheel (defending his 24”/26” title)
three of Brian’s friends (???)
Add your name to the list!!!
Just one month till the event… Should be one heck of a great time for all who attend :D!
See you there!
