Below is a playlist of the past SCBF Winter Series and Sugar Cayne Bike Fest events which happen in the spring/summer
Below is the list and order of competitions:
-Chase Race: A head to head elimination chase race on the oval pumptrack section of the track. The rider that catches up to the other rider moves on to the next round until a winner is reached
-Time Trial: Riders get timed doing a full lap around the track (Striders will be timed on the oval track). Fastest time wins
-Relay Time Trial: Rider team up into groups of 4 and each do a lap around the track one at a time. Once the rider gets back to the start they then tap the next rider in their team to do a full lap. This gets repeated until the last rider on the team goes. Which ever team has the fastest overall time wins.
-High Jump: Riders have to jump over a heigh bar, whoever goes the highest without knocking the bar down wins
-Best Style: Riders do a full lap around the pump track and show off their style. The more riders utilize the many rollers and jumps to get style, the better they’ll do. Riders can do tricks, smoothness, technique and overall creativity. There will be 3 judges rating each rider on a scale from 1-10. The rider with the highest score wins.
Balance/no pedal bikes will only be doing the Time Trail, Relay Time Trail and chase race on the oval pump track
