Skills Test Ride
For 2018 the gymkhana is being replaced by a skilled riding course. Less about time, this event challenges the rider with a variety of tasks to complete on the bike. Putting your handling and riding skills to the test.
Lot’o Luck Ride
This game will run for the course of the event and riders may participate as many time as they wish to. Each ride allows a rider and pillion to draw one number from each of 4 containers to make up the lucky number selection for the draw later in the day. The more you enter, the more you can win. If a rider puts down his feet only the numbers already selected will be entered. If a container is missed or a number is dropped by the pillion. It will not be entered for the draw.
Using a small rope ring, participants aim to maximize the score of the team by throwing the ring onto the highest scoring pegs. Of course in true risk reward style, the pegs worth the most will be placed further from the bike path… no risk no reward. If the rider puts his feet down, the run is scrapped and a score of 0 is entered for the run. Each team gets 2 runs, totalled scores count for positions. Ties will be settled through a run off until a difference is scored.
Each team is given a container with a set amount of water at the beginning of the ride. The team must pour the water into the slide, proceed to the output pipe and recapture as much of the water as they can without putting their feet down. Water in the container at the end is measured, team with the most recaptured water wins. If the rider puts his feet down, the run is scrapped and a score of 0 is entered for the run. Each team gets 2 runs, totalled water collected is scored for positions.
