Fall Tilt Bike Race
The race is capped at 40 on-course riders, which translates to over 60 competitors on race day. There will be mandatory meeting Friday night and race day is Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Prior to the start of the race, each rider must complete at least one course inspection, and riders will utilize the gondola both days. The winners of each class and category are determined by the total number of laps completed in a 12-hour period. There are no ties. CJ Sports Timing will time every lap of every rider to determine the winners just in case there is a tie in the number of laps. Riding after dark will require the use of approved front-mounted bike lights. If a rider intends to run the last hours of the race and doesn’t have an adequate lighting system, they won’t be allowed on the course.
Currently, Fall Tilt registration is available online at BikeReg.com, and it will end Friday, September 30 at midnight. After that, a $20 on-site registration fee will apply. Participation fees range from $75 to $180, and include event registration, race plate, on-site hospitality, event after-party, and a guaranteed good time. Classes and categories include open and amateur solo, duo and trio teams. Team class is based on best-rider-on-team skill level and only one rider per duo and trio team is allowed on the course at any given time. As for that pretty cash purse, the amount will only move north as open class registration numbers increase. Cash will be paid to top finishers – first, second and third – in the open class and for all categories. And last, but not least, at the awards ceremony every rider will have the opportunity to win a killer gift, compliments of the event’s sponsors.
