Mini Major One Week Away

What you need to know 2nd edition...

The Mini Majors is a unique event.  Quite possibly the only one in the world of its kind!  Pee Wee’s to Supermini’s only racing on a unique track built just for the kids.  Vendors and sponsors who are geared around kids.  BMX Pump Track and nightly activities.  Classes that allow for riders of all skill levels to find a gate drop without having to jump into the best of the best amateur racers in the age group classes.  It’s all a unique effort that Transworld Motocross is committed to sharing with the race community.  With that comes lots of questions.  This post is to answer more of those for you.  If you missed the first info released earlier this week check it out here http://motocross.transworld.net/news/mini-major-presented-seven/

Now we give you more!  Read below:

Pre Registration –  We fully expect some classes to sell out.  There are more classes now added so that pretty much any rider with one bike has the opportunity to race three classes.  List the pre reg site by CLICKING HERE and don’t forget the sooner you sign up the better gate pick you are awarded and it’s $5 more per class on site.

Food Vendors – We will have four food vendors on site giving you great choices and fun food.  We have Mexican, Pizza, BBQ and a local favorite Kona Ice dishing out food every day for your pleasure.

Live Timing – For this year we will have live timing available online.  We tested this at the SLAM Fest and it worked smoothly.  Families were able to follow lap times live from their smart phones each and every lap.  This will be a fun way to follow your racer around the track and compare with the other riders in real time.

Schedule – Many families are traveling from outside of California.  We are excited you put us on your calendar.  Below is the schedule for the week of the Mini Major.

Wednesday Nov 1 – Track Practice is 9am-1pm,  Gates are open from 8am-8pm.  If you wish to pull in for overnight parking on this day the charge is $65.  There will be a pump service for RV’s on site each day starting Friday for $40.

Thursday Nov 2 – Track Practice is 12pm-4:30pm.  Gates are open from 8am-9pm.  Overnight parking for the weekend from this day is $50.  Practices will be split and for racers only.

Prizes – Before the first gate drops you will receive a goodie bag from our sponsors just for signing up!  Custom Transworld Motocross SEVEN color way ODI Grips will be a big hit!  There are also tons of giveaways throughout the weekend like tires from IRC, Stacyc Electric Bikes, and event two BMX bikes from Fit Bike Co. What is Christmas coming early or what!? Just wait for it… There will be a ton more…

Webcast – There will be a live webcast of Sunday’s race action including every single gate drop and the class champions.  You can tell your family to tune in and watch you live from anywhere in the world!  We will also be archiving the footage so that after the races are over you can go back and check out your racing action.  This is a big project as we are moving in man lifts, multiple camera angles, staffing up on announcers, boosting the internet signal and much more.  We can’t wait to show you the footage live from the Mini Major this year.  It will be available on our Youtube, Facebook and website.

Well that’s all for this post.  We will keep feeding you the info and look forward to seeing everyone at the event!
