The Game Rules.
The Rider that goes first will be decided by the loser of the previous game. Rider 1 then sets his trick. Whether he lands it, or doesn’t, the next trick set will be made by rider 2.
If Rider 1 lands their trick set, Rider 2 must do that trick. If Rider 2 doesn’t land the trick set by Rider 1, then he gets a “B”. You keep getting letters until you have the whole word “B.I.K.E.”.
Each rider will get 1 redo to use throughout the game. if the rider saves it till their last try on letter “E” he may use it as an extra try to stay in the game. But if the rider has already used their redo by the letter “E” then they only get 2 tries on that last trick, instead of 3 with an unused redo.
The Announcer and Judge (Craig From Hotboxrva) Will decide on whether or not to count sketchy looking lands. If the trick is to hard to tell whether or not it was landed, Craig can call a “sketchy Redo”. this is a free redo that doesn’t take away from the redo that the rider already has.
Combos are limited to tricks that are linked together. EX: Feeble to manual to smith.
First Place will get $300 cash, and Second Place will receive $100 cash.”
