Event Description

Rodeo Events

Log Pull – A block of wood is attached to the bike with a rope and the fastest rider over a short course wins. Run in heats (2 racers at a time).
Slow Race – How slowly can you ride between two points without stopping or putting a foot down while staying in your lane? Slowest person wins. Run in heats, 2 racers at a time.
Barrel Race – The fastest to race through a series of barrels (or pylons) wins. Run as time trial or in heats, if room enough.
Balance Race – Competitors ride on sections of timber that narrow from 8″ to 2″ wide. Points are given for riding the length of the timbers and deducted for not reaching the end.
NOTE: These timbers are pieces of lumber that are laid flat on the ground. This is NOT elevated.
Longest Wheelie – Just like the title says. Whoever can ride a wheelie the longest wins.
