RCS is part of the Am Flat Circuit, riders can add points to their current rankings by competing in one of the 4 categories on that weekend ; Novice, Veteran, Expert and PRO.
Also PRO finals will be battle format + we will add a Best Spin Contest to the mix to switch things up a bit from the usual freestyle comp.
Cash prizes for PRO and some awesome treats will go out to Expert and Novice Class riders. Real City Spin medals to all podiums.
With confirmed riders from Costa Rica, Japan, USA, France, and the best from Québec and Canada, RCS promises to be the most refreshing contest on the East Coast in years.

The roulodome is a big flat area dedicated to the practice of many sports, we will hold Real City Spin there next to the big windows and garage door so the riders can enjoy riding indoors and outdoors throughout the event. We will setup a 2000 square feet area covered in 1⁄2 inch sheets of plywood. We will setup bleachers around two sides of the area and also setup a DJ booth and lounge area for the rider to chill in in between sessions.
