Sporting

Sporting activities let riders compete in many different fun games-like activities that are run usually against the clock.  The fastest usually wins the individual events, however riders can be eliminated from events for various infringements such as knocking over a pole, missing a turn around a pole or marker, or stepping outside the lines.  At the end of the day, the rider who has won the most events is usually declared the overall winner from that age-group.


Some examples of sporting events are: Bending, where riders have to weave up and back along a line of posts and Keyhole, where riders have to ride up a narrow corridor marked on the ground, turn within a marked circle, and ride back.
