John Elway Tribute STXC

imagesimages-1Todays AOA/DEVO SHort Track #5 will be a tribute to the great John Elway, for no reason other than pure randomness. Well, maybe just to make the race special in a Coloradan way. So in honor of the great #7, all competitors who show up wearing Bronco orange, blue or a number 7 somewhere on their race garb, get a special prize.

Now to more biker like news on the event. Cash money will be paid out to the top 5 A men and women and top 3 B men and women. A’s get 40 for 1st, 30, 20, 15 and 10 and B’s get 20 for 1st, 10 and 5 dollars. Overall series standing will be posted here later today and will be used to determine starting order. The start line will be 7 racers wide and rows will fill in 7 wide to the back. There will not be the usual $5 holeshot prime for this race. 

DEVO greatly appreciates your participation in this summer series. It has been a super positive part of the teams week and it is clear that the kids love it. Thanks for showing up and we’ll see you tonight.

notes: reminder that next wednesdays race will be a cash money race, meaning we will be paying out the podium in each race. more on that and up to date overall series standings at a later date, probably next week sometime, ok.

plus: We’d also like to thank Field Blevins at Animas Orthopedic Associates for sponsoring this sweet summer short track series. His support has allowed us to make the series work into the DEVO program. Give him a high five next time you see him out on the trail.
