The Friday Night Race Series has upgraded from aluminum to carbon for the 2020 season! We have a brand new chip timing system this year which–after an excellent trial run at the Winter Woolly–has given us the perfect opportunity to restructure and expand the series.
The new structure is focused on inclusiveness and competitive opportunity for all categories of riders. You and your friends will team up to compete in a 7-week race series. There is maximum of five riders on each team. Don’t have a team of your own? You can choose to run solo, or we can match you up with available spots on another team.
Each week, you’ll get one timed run on a rotating group of trails. You will collect points based on finish order in your division. The top three point earners on your team will be combined to determine your team’s standing. Teams will be ranked highest to lowest by points in the fight for the ultimate prize at the end of the series: some truly sweet trophies and a year’s supply of bragging rights.
If you or a member of your team has to miss a week, don’t panic. Each team will have only the scores from their five best weeks count toward the championship. Each team’s two lowest-scoring weeks will be dropped.
More race nights. More rider categories. Team standings, quicker results, and more giveaways making the series fun for even more riders. Stick around and join us for live music, beer tastings, food and fun in the pub following the race each week. Each rider, win or lose, will have a chance to win prizes in free weekly raffles supported by different sponsors throughout the series.
