July 19th Sunday Night Skid Update

Yesterday was the first official start of The Sunday Night Skid and it was an amazing one with alittle more than 25 people showing up and 14 riders with a pot size of 28 dollars up for grabs there was some serious competition! Everyone stepped it up for an amazing race each time Go was called over the walkie... Advancing to the second round was Alex McClurg (with the fastest time of the night a 14.8 getting him 5 extra points added to his total), Sam Porter, Matthew Barton, Jesse Heath, Creighton Tynes, Nick Willis, and Jarrod Allen (who got a bye into the 3rd round by luck of the draw). Between Alex and Sam was a close race but ended up Alex coming out on top and advancing to the next round against Jesse Heath. Next was the battle of the geared bikes between Creighton and Nick giving Nick the upper hand coasting his way to the finish, leaving him against Jarrod in the next round. With a rematch from last weeks Rain Sprint Session Alex and Jesse faced off once again leading Jesse to the final against Nick on his geared bike after beating Jarrod on a fixed gear. In the final Jesse's fixed gear beach crusier reigned victorious once again leaving him with the pot of 28 dollars... Here are some pictures from the sprint session of the night thanks to Austin Anderson for the amazing pictures(If you want to know if there are any pictures of you leave a comment and i can email them to you if there are any)!
After sprints we had a serious game of footdown, who am I kidding it wasn't serious just fun. Coming in first was Sam Porter, second Creighton Tynes, and third Jarrod Allen. Here are some pictures:

Finally we had Trackstand competition leaving Alex McClurg in first, Sam Porter in second, and Aaron Lane in third!

Here are the Official Standings as of July 19th:
Alex McClurg: 21
Sam Porter: 18

Breakdown of the Point System

Alright so I know alot of people are confused with this whole series system so let me break it down for you:

At the end of this 3 week series the person with the most points wins first and its prizes and so on...

Breakdown of Points:

Showing Up (without even racing) will get you 3 points! So come on out have a beer and watch some bikes
Getting 1st place in a sprint or game will get you 10 points (plus the pot of 2 dollar buy in), getting 2nd will get you 5 points (and your money back from the buy in), getting 3rd will get you 3 points
In Sprints the fastest time of the night will get 5 points added to their total

Hope this breaks some confusion and remember the first part of the series starts Sunday July 12th at 8 oclock at the parking lot behind Morris Ave!

Announcement of Sunday Night Skid

Alright so Birmingham needs a better bike scene and we all know this... That is why we are going to start having Sunday Night Skid every other week!!! So mark your calenders for July 12 at 830 for the first meeting of Sunday Night Skid... everyone is welcome to come fixed gear, single speed, roadies, mountain bikers, etc. if you ride a bike and want to have some fun come on out! Flyers will be coming out soon and announcement of location... but here is the general rundown of what Sunday Night Skid is going to pertain to:

1.Multi-week showcase
each week gains you points for showing up, racing and winning (or even coming in first, second or third)
You know what it is... fastest wins, bracket system, first second and third place point scorers. 2 dollars to enter winner takes the pot o' gold and points! (So the more people you bring to race the more money you are likely to win!)
3. Bike Games
After sprints be prepared for some hardcore gaming whether it be trackstand competition, bike polo, longest skid, u-lock pickup, or whatever we come up with at the time. (have an idea drop us a line at john_sloan_photography@yahoo.com)

Overall this should be a great time so spread the word, look for the flyers, and most importantly show up!

We already have backing from Cahaba Cycles, Primavera Coffee, and Planet Smoothie!
