Below is a simple overview of BMRx, Please review carefully.
Snapshot: * Three triangles to choose from, nine start/finish options. * Choose your triangle and select a single corner to be your start & finish location. * Your start location will be your first bonus of the rally, this same location will also be your 'end' location and your last bonus of the rally. * There will be two rest bonuses, rider discretion on when/where: Minimum 4hours each, although points can be earned for going over 4 hours. * Rally Duration: 66hours : 36Minutes ** If you do not earn *each/every* corner of your triangle *and* earn *both* rest bonuses you will not have the points required to finish this event. (yes, you are limited to corners of your own triangle). - Bonus Pack will be available 1 hour prior to start of rally. You can route as long as you like, anything after 1 hour will be on the clock. - Many bonuses with various point values to choose from. Riders will be provided with accurate waypoints for all bonuses. - All bonuses will be earned via pictures submitted from the bonus location by smart phone to the BMR website.
Other Info: * Rally will start June 05; 2015 04:15 Reno Time * You will primarily be competing against the other riders of your triangle. Think of this as three rallies within a rally. You are competing head-to head against riders in your triangle, and secondarily against all riders in all triangles. * Consistent with traditional BMR events, (near)real-time scoring will show all above scoring models. * Application to ride this event will be available before March 01 (check back for updates)
Is this rally for me? This rally is purposely designed for three groups of riders: 1.) BMR riders who want to experience a shorter rally with elements consistent with traditional rallies including: a. Routing on the clock b. Rally-provided data files of bonus locations c. Rest bonuses 2.) IBR 2015 participants and other veteran rallyists who want to experience a sharp multi-day rally which will provide: a. Time/distance calculations galore in a competitive event. b. Opportunity to test and fine-tune equipment and methodologies c. Smart phone bonus submission and scoring in (near)real-time. 3.) Tenured riders with strong riding skills (and perhaps no formal rally experience) a. Routing/riding to all mandatory bonuses (complete your triangle) and earning rest bonuses will meet finishing status criteria. b. Add more miles and more points by choosing optional bonuses and adding them to your route and earning them. (This is the basic concept of all competitive rallies)
Cost: As with all BMR events, we work hard to keep costs low and we believe the cost/value ratio of this event is very high. Use the savings for decent lodging before/during/after the event. Three pricing tiers: * General $50.00 * BMR 2015 Finishers : $25.00 * IBR 2015 Participants: $49.00
Expectations: 1. Safety and knowing your limits is paramount. Ride smart and within your skillset. If you don’t know your limits or skillset, this event is not for you. 2. Your conduct will be superlative at all times. In BMR events you are at the scoring table 24/7, any conduct not seen as positive and constructive to moto-bike fun in general; and this event specifically: Will result in an immediate egress from this event. 3. BMR bonus picture requirements are tough, much tougher than most other events. Be prepared to partner with the scoring team by breaking-your-ass on every bonus submission to secure solid pictures which meet scoring team criteria. If you’re of the mindset that riding to the bonus is good enough and should earn points, this event is not for you. In BMR events strong bonus submission efforts are the expectation.
