Had enough of the babbling on this site (but think you might be able to stand us for 6 days?)

Ready for 2019? I like the fire in your belly, kid. Sign up for 2019 HERE (Aug 11-16, 2019). Super-duper-extra-rad-early bird pricing available until Aug 10, 2018 at midnight…and then it goes up a hundred clams.

Refunds and Cancellations

We have to pull back on our policy a bit because it’s getting abused and that’s putting us in Dutch in terms of getting refunds processed in an expedient fashion. For 2018 we’ll offer full refunds without penalty until April 15, 2018. From April 16 to June 1 (2018) riders will receive 75% of their entry fee back or a deferral valid for two years. No refunds will be issued after June 1, 2018, but riders may still defer for up to two years. At ANY point a rider who finds themselves unable to participate may sell or transfer their entry at no cost.

We’ll refund anyone in full for any reason whatsoever up to 90 days out (so for 2019, May 10, 2019). If your plans change or life gets in the way after that, we can offer you a deferral that’s valid for up to two years OR the ability to sell your entry. We WILL sell out in 2019, so a waiting list is likely. We can help you move your entry once we get on a list. There are no additional fees for any of these three contingencies, but please be aware that the modest processing fee charged by the registration site is non-refundable.
