GBP Pump Track Series Race IV
Race Details:

Bring your speed and skills to Griffin Bike Park to race on the Pro Pump Track for prizes and bragging rights! This is a five race series and will culminate with the Finals at the Griffin Bike Park Festival Sept 12. This race will be "head to head" double elimination race--riders will be broken down into age classes with bracket style racing. This will determine class champions for each age group and overall points for the race series.
This race is a BMX style race, BMX and mountain bikes are highly recommended. We encourage all racers to arrive early to check out the pump track and register! Registration is ONLY $15 and the day of first race begins at 10:00 A.M.

General rules
• If an athlete is younger than 18 years, his parents have to sign the “waiver for minors“ and bring this to the onsite check-in. No waiver = no ride.
• Riders are allowed to participate in as many races as they choose. The best 4 out of 5 races count towards season end awards. You MUST race the finals on September 12th to be eligible for season end awards.
• All riders have to register and sign the waiver 1st before going on the track for free practice. No number plate = no ride.
• Riders are free to choose their preferred bike. The bike must not have an engine.
• The start will be placed in a way that gives MTB and BMX equal chances.
Races will be Head to Head Dual
• Riders will go head to head at the same time.
• Both riders get ready with one foot on the ground, the other foot on the pedal, with the crank arm pointing towards the ground. The time starts running as soon as the riders cross their start / finish timing line and stops when they cross it again.
• The rider who crosses the finish line 1st advances to the next round.
Please note:
• Dependent on the track layout, this format requires 2 runs per knock-out heat (to be defined by the sports director).
• Run 1: The rider with the faster timed run will start on the left course, at the same time the other rider starts on the right course. The riders go head to head and they both set a time. The maximum time difference / penalty is 1.5 sec (for example if a rider crashes).
• Run 2: Both riders switch lanes. The riders go head to head for the second time and they both set a 2nd time.
• The combination of both times (left and right course) per rider determines the riders overall time.
• The winner of the knock-out heat is the rider with the shortest combined time and they advance to the next round.
Rider safety
• Riders will bring all equipment needed in a fully operational condition.
• Riders are not allowed to use pedals where shoes are attached to the pedal.
• The bike should have at least 1 rear brake.
• No bikes with any kind of automatic transmission, pedal assist motors or engines.
• No protruding parts on the bike, which can injure other riders (such as pegs).
