Practice Races

Posted on Dec 7th, 2010, 12:29am EST

Since this is the first year for we will be having a few practice races for everyone to put in some laps before the season kicks off. I added 2 "mock" races Saturday 12/18/10 and 1/1/11. You can treat these like real races if you want the practice. Once the gate drops on 1/8/11, it's game on!! Shortly after the lock out time of the practice race, I will enter some "mock" results. Then on January 3rd, I will delete these 2 practice races and reset everyone's points back to 0 for the start of the season. Let me know if you have any questions. Please note, these first 2 races are just for practice.

so are you just going to make random results so we all get a feel for the whole system??

Yes, exactly. Just to get some practice of how the points and site works. Then I will delete them before the 1st SX race.

Will we be able to click on any team an see who they picked either before or after the deadline. Or is that kept a secret. Also i have a suggestion, whichever riders pull the holeshots in there main events, that rider earns a holeshot bonus of say 5 points. That rider must be a chosen rider of the four a team has already selected. Just an opinion.

After the race starts (deadline), you will be able to click on a team to see who they picked for that week. Before the race, you cannot see who is picking what riders. You can just see the popular picks in the "Top Picks" page. I would have to change the database to award the holeshot points, but I will keep this in mind for next year. I like the suggestions.

This is my last question. Is it $25 per race weekend or does that one time fee include all rounds. And why does it say 25 dollars joins me in four divisions while 10 dollars only gets me one division. Will i be on four diff teams or is the four divisions something else all together. Sorry im asking alot. Just trying to learn this. The more i know the easier it is to explain to my friends that want to join also. Thank You

I dont mind the questions. I am glad to see the excitement. It is $25 for the whole year, you play all 17 rounds and have 17 chances to win weekly prizes. If you only want to spend $10, you can only join 1 prize division. To get a bargain deal, you pay $25 and you get to play in all 4 prize divisions for the 17 weeks, so thats 68 chances to win prizes.

Plus, to win the bike, the overall points will add all 4 of your ranked divisions points and keep that running total. So to realistically have a shot at the bike, you must join the 4 ranked divisions. This is partly why we are having the practice rounds. So hopefully you can see how it works.

So in the four division series, i must choose four riders in both the lites an supercross class each. Can i choose the same four riders in the other three divisions for that week or is it that whenever i choose a rider in a certain division his name is crossed out for for the remainder divisions left for that week. Basically that would be 16 riders each in the lites an 16 riders in the supercross class. Am i close or am i way off. Basically what im asking, is each division its own little race. Example, can i choose James Stewart, Chad Reed, Kevin Windham, and Trey Canard in all four divisions. Or are those riders only allowed to be chosen in only one division out of four. I think i drank to much caffeine tonight.

Yes, too much caffene. Yes, you can pick the same 4 riders in each division if you want. You treat each division separately.

I just had a quick reccommendation, on the Pick Pages, maybe add a line with how many riders you're supposed to pick.

paris289Dec 14th, 2010, 11:29pm EST

That is listed in the rules, but if you are unsure, and try to pick any amount other than 4 riders, it will error. I could put it on that page too. Thanks for the info.

Cool. Everything else looks great. Definitely looking forward to it!

i read about the riders names being crossed out in the team picking and does that mean that once you use the rider one week he is unusable the rest of the season?? or just the next week...

paris289Dec 19th, 2010, 8:25pm EST

Just the next week. You can use the same riders every other week if you want.
