I've been making inquiries about organizing an MTB contest at Rye Airfield. There used to be one, but it's fallen off in the past couple of years. I am recently unemployed and need to fill my time, so I've decided to try and bring it back. The guy at the park got back to me and said the park would be available May 8th or 15th. Some time just before Highland opens is what he wants to shoot for. The only catch: I have to locate 30 interested people to make it happen. No word on entry fees, yet. Suffice it to say this won't be a money-making operation. I'd just like to give the winners a taste and cover some refreshments.

I would like to get a few classes going. Am/Expert/maybe pro too. Peer judged, jam format.

This is the first step, I will be trying to sign up a couple of sponsors to throw in product for prizes as well. If this sounds like something you would take part in please post a reply. This will be the petition that helps make it happen.

From the facebook event page:

Okay, we're on:
The date is set for Saturday, May 1st.
This is one week before Highland is set to open.

Registration is 9am-3pm
Contest begins at 5pm

Entry fees include day pass to the park
$50 for pros - 50% payout for cash prize
$25 for experts and am classes, no age ranges

We'll be doing a semi-jam format, roughly as follows:
5-7 riders in the park at a time. Each rider gets a solo intro run, then there is a 5min jam for the group, then a final trick for each rider.

Warm up (open to all) between groups while judges tabulate scores.

Finals will be the same format:
5-7 riders, intro run, 10 min jam, final trick

There will also be a 5 minute last chance qualifier jam.
This will be open for all as a last-ditch chance to get into each respective final.

Best Trick will be after finals while scores are tallied.
As a fun challenge we'll pick one specific element in the park to work with.
