New for this year, we will be doing a team competition. Teams will cosists of 6 people per team (one person for each division). Each person of the team will compete in their division and be judged same as all other riders in their division. After each rider in the team has rode their totals will be added together to give a team total, this will determine the winner of the team competition.
