Divisions & Prizes

Divisions & Prizes
A 1st place prize (and trophy) will be given regardless of how many are in that division. If you are the ONLY woman fatbiker, for example, you definitely deserve recognition for that! A 2nd place prize will be given if there are a minimum of 5 entrants in the division. 3rd place if minimum of 10.

1st place finishers will get first pick of the prizes. 2nd place will get next and so on. That way everyone has a good shot at getting something they can use.

We will add more age-group divisions if the number of participants warrants it. We reserve the right to adjust prizes and divisions based on registrations.

Overall winners are pulled OUT of the divisions so a rider could bump up into the prizes from a lower place.
