Other challenges & rules.

THE BASIC RULES

You must go to all of the cities on your route, anywhere else is up to you.

* All City Challenges are to be opened only after entering the city limits of said city.

* Only one person from the team is required to complete a trick or challenge to earn the points (unless the challenge specifically says "everyone.")

* Only one person can earn the points on any specific trick--ie, just because two people can do it doesn't mean you get the points twice.

* Meet the challenges to the best of your abilities and understanding. Any ambiguities in the wording of the challenges are unintentional. The most obvious answer is usually the correct one. Looking for loopholes and point-grubbing are considered poor form.

* All tricks must be filmed to get points.

* The validity of imperfect landings will be at Jake Phelps' discretion.

* In the event of a tie on Highest, Longest, Most challenges (for example, if two teams have a 20-stair ollie) both teams get the 50 points.

* In the event of a tie for the entire event (ie, two teams have the same point total,) the winner will be decided by a game of SKATE with each of the tying teams nominating one team member to compete.

* Ins and Outs--team members may leave from and return to the tour at any time, however, they cannot earn points while away, nor can their team earn points where "everyone" is required to do a challenge.

* There are to be no substitutions even in the case of injury.

* The team with the most points will be the King of the Road. They will receive the title, the trophy and $1,000 for each skater on the winning team ($5,000 total--team manager, videographer, photographer and Mystery Guest get nothing.)

* One member of the winning team will be featured on the cover of the Thrasher King of the Road issue. They will also be invited to participate as the defending champions in the next KOTR event.

* The team with the most total points will be named the Kings of the Road.
