Labor Day Races Awards
Labor weekend races will have a higher payout! This is a two day race and the winner will be determined by the 2 race results combined. If there is a tie in points, Sunday’s results will be the tiebreaker. Racers must compete in both races (September 1 & 2) to be eligible for any cash and prizes during this weekend.
Male Pro | $1,000, $500, $250
Female Pro | $1,000, $500, $250
Amateur prizes awarded to 1st-5th place for all categories averaging $4,000 in retail prizes per race. Angel Fire Bike Park has the right to change the cash payout or combine classes if there are not 5 in a category. The top 5 in every category class will make the podium.
Labor Day Point Structure:
The racer with the least amount of points from 2-day combined race results will win. Your points earned will match the place you take in each race. So, the racer in first place gets 1 point, the racer in second gets 2 points, etc. If there is a tie in points earned, the results from Sundays race will be the tiebreaker.
