It’s been a busy September, especially for those who participated in the first-ever Singletracks Trail Check-in Contest! Twenty-six teams of up to five members each competed to see who could ride the most trails, and the competition for first place came down to the wire, with just two check-ins separating first and second place.
1st place: Rad Rollers
2nd place: Raw Carvers
Every Raw Carver gets a $25 JensonUSA gift card and RaceFace Love Handle grips plus a Singletracks Pro membership.
3rd place: Lightning Slayers
Each Lightning Slayer earned a set of RaceFace Love Handle grips and a Singletracks t-shirt.
Big thanks to everyone who participated, and especially to our contest sponsors! We’ll be reaching out this week to get shipping info for everyone on the winning teams.
This was the first time we’ve hosted this type of contest, but it certainly won’t be the last! Check out the feedback from some who participated:
“I really enjoyed participating in this contest. Found more new trails plus rediscovered previously ridden.”
“It got me out on some new trails that I probably wouldn’t have tried. I’m looking forward to continuing my new trail explorations.”
“That was fun. Between sleeping in my car and dragging my bike to work with me(truck driver). All my friends and family think I’m insane now. lol Loved it.”
For those keeping track, Greg’s Singletracks Team #2 actually nabbed third place bragging rights, though he definitely had a ringer or two on his side. 🙂 Interesting to note: All three of the top teams were made up of randomly-assigned riders. Our guess was that teams of riders who knew one another would be more effective, since they could coordinate and pressure each other into riding more, but apparently it didn’t work out that way. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to start planning for the next contest–so many trails, so little time!
