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
Each team member will receive a pair of Tifosi Lure sunglasses, a set of RaceFace Love Handle grips, a Singletracks t-shirt, and Singletracks Pro membership.
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!
I want to say “Thank you” to Singletracks and Sponsors for organizing such a great contest. And to teammates and other teams for showing so many trails I wanna ride. It was fun and challenge at the same time: fun riding new trails and challenge to do it while being busy at work.
I hadn’t see this post since the end of the contest. It was fun and as I am still traveling (San Diego area at the moment), I just got my RaceFace Love Handle Grips and Pro Membership in my much traveled mail package. Lucky for me the contest took place during a planned bike trip and it inspired me to ride many trails. My team would have won if it wasn’t for that crazy Kentucky truck driver that was out riding until the final hours!!!!
