Just wanted to let you know about the new format we are introducing at the Silver Rush 50 mountain bike race this year. Team Challenge with a four foot tall trophy that may weigh more than 100lbs...no cash, just bragging rights.
Should be a pretty fun!
Attention Bike Shops and Employees!
Grab your four fastest co-workers and join us at the Silver Rush 50 for the BIKE SHOP TEAM CHALLENGE! The concept is simple: five-person teams will race the full Silver Rush 50 and the team with the lowest total finishing points will be crowned champion! The winners get to keep the nearly four-foot-tall Team Trophy for 364 days with the shop name forever engraved on the front.Saddle up and lets race!
Teams of THREE riders
Shops MAY have more than one team.
No Pros! (Sandbagging is lame -- don't do it.)
No Purse - just a year of bragging rights and showing off the massive Team
Trophy in the shop!
No age groups.
Every finisher counts, so do whatever you can to help your teammates finish.We will add up the team's cumulative positions: 1st = 1 point, 2nd = 2points, and so forth. Lowest total points wins. DNF = total number of riders
who started, so even last place is more meaningful than a DNF, than 1st over 5th or even 50th.
We encourage all women's teams, costumes, and riders weighing over 200 pounds. And if you let us know about the worst mechanical one of your teammates has -- and they finish the race -- we may have some swag for you.
Don't work at a bike shop? Beg your way onto a bike shop team by heading over to your local bike shop and encouraging them to participate or form a second team! We hear cases of beer don't hurt.
All teams will be entered into the Bike Shop Team Challenge lottery for theLT100. One of the teams will randomly be drawn and guaranteed full-price entry into the 2013 or defer to the 2014 LT100. Entry for either year must be paid for on the same day. Entries will be drawn immediately following the completion of the SR50 race.
Our massive, nearly four-foot-tall trophy weighs nearly 100 lbs and is the real deal. Made by Rachel of Re-Geared.com, it's the biggest trophy she ha sever created! You'll need to clear a place for it in your shop to display it proudly before putting it back up for grabs in 2014. Will you defend it?
All teams must submit a roster that lists their 3 riders. All rosters need tobe finalized and submitted by July 1, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are going to start a Team List on this page in the next week! Get your lists in to us as soon as possible so the locals can see who the competition is!
