Skatercross(sm) Skateboard Racing to be at Clash at Clairemont 10 June 25th, 2016
Skatercross(sm) Skateboard Racing will consist of 27 athlete/racers competing in 3 athlete per-bracket draw format. All Racers will be chipped to compute race times throughout event. Results based on first to cross finish line. No judges.
This bracket style format will be a double elimination format thus guaranteeing each racer has to be defeated twice to be eliminated from draw.
Seventeen pre-seeded athletes will be joined by 10 open qualifier athletes. (determined via pre-qualifier races and/or time trials to be held earlier in week). All athletes racing will be randomly drawn at pre-event draw party. Race officials will randomly draw lane selections for each race. ( 1, 2 or 3). The race will consist of first rounds, narrowed down to a 9-athlete Super Bracket culminating in one final 3-athlete race (podium event). In the event that all 3 racers crash or are inadvertently stopped from completing the race that race will be run again. If any racer is deemed by track officials to have purposely affected race outcome by interference or lane departure they will be disqualified and two remaining racers will re-race to determine advancement.
Prize Purse will breakdown: podium 1st, 2nd, 3rd, then 4th down will be awarded by riders times. A “Pole Position” award will be granted to fastest lap of the day. BMX best trick/demo to be incorporated into the race day. All entrants will receive event gift bag, event VIP access, onsite medical/trainers and food and beverage.
