AKRON LOCAL POINT & TOP 10 JACKET SERIES
The rider will receive Akron series points for every race. These are used to determine which riders are eligible for special series awards. A weekly running total is kept for each rider in each point’s class, and at the end of the series, the rider with the most points is declared the winner. All riders are listed under the age they are at the end of the series, not the age they are today. Current points for all series are posted on the boards between registration and the annex.
As a rider moves up in age and proficiency, points are carried forward.
All riders will receive credit and points for every race they raced even if they did not race the main.
The Series runs from April 23rd to October 8th, 2017. You must participate in at least 20 races to qualify for this series. We will use the rider’s total points for the series.
LOCAL POINT SERIES AWARDS
Free banquet tickets are awarded to the top 3 qualified riders in each point class. In addition,
1st Place - Custom Championship Hoodie
2nd Place - Custom Hoodie
3rd Place - Custom long Sleeve Shirt
TOP 10 JACKET SERIES AWARDS
Custom Point Series Jackets will be awarded to the overall TOP 10 Riders of the LOCAL POINT SERIES
NOTE: ALL Awards are only for Qualified Riders. One ticket and one award will be given to the rider. Riders racing in more than one class will receive the award of the highest achievement.
Once the points are finalized for this series, riders whose names are highlighted are to go to registration to pick up their free banquet tickets and to give their size for either the jacket, hoodie or long sleeve shirt.
FALL CLASSIC SERIES
Fall Classic Series will be a series of races starting August 10th and end October 22rd, 2017. Riders must race eight races to qualify for the jersey. Ribbons are awarded in place of trophies or saver coupons. All riders who qualify will be awarded an Akron BMX jersey at the Annual Awards Banquet.
Sizes for the jerseys are accumulated early in the series since we need approximately 6 weeks to order the jerseys so they are received by the date of the banquet. We will ask for sizes from all riders even though they may not be awarded the jersey because they did not qualify.
