Yeah You Ride is excited to announce a new, “business casual” competition circuit, the Summer Sprint Series. Riders will pony up and compete for cash in head-to-head drag sprints, with the top 3 sprinters taking home cheddar. Every month the location will change, as will the distance of the sprint. Originally conceived as a fixed gear and singlespeed only event, we have decided to allow geared riders to compete in a separate bracket. Check out scoring and rules below.
Location: 6701 Stars and Stripes Boulevard (approximate, look for us)
Rules: Buy-in is $5. BYOB/BYOL (Bring Your Own Beer/Bring Your Own LaCroix). Only 2 riders sprint at once, stay on the course. We’ll have an “eyeball” finish. To-close-to-calls will sprint again, so make sure you leave your challenger in the dust.
Scoring: As this is a series, there will be a cumulative point system to determine a winner after the series is completed. The series winner will receive a separate, additional prize.
For each sprint won, a rider will receive 1 point. A loss earns 0 points.
First place overall will receive +5 points towards their cumulative total. Second will reveive +3. Third will receive +2.
Payout will be roughly as follows. First place: 50% of pot. Second Place: 30% of pot. Third place will get their $5 back. The remaining percentage will go towards the purse for the overall winners of the entire series.
