MTB races that everyone can join. If you can ride, you can win.
HK Competition Period Now Complete. Thanks to all the riders and supporters. Next event to be announced soon!
Pedal Slam is a social mountain bike race where you ride the trails and submit your times via your smartphone. Ride the trails as many times as you like within the competition period. Any time, any day. The riders’ fastest times during the competition period will determine their place.
The best part is you don’t have to be the fastest, just the fastest in your group ?
How it works
We do things different but it’s all about getting more people on their bikes, getting the mountain bike community together and providing everyone more chances to win! Pedal Slam will collect your times and at the end of the competition we sort the list of entrants from fastest to slowest times, then we divide the whole list into quarters (4 equal sized Groups). This means there is more chances for everyone to win more prizes. The prizes go to the riders at the top of each group. For example, if we have 100 riders competing (that would be great!), these would be the winners –
Sample 100 Riders Results
PEDAL SLAM Open (Cash & Prizes)

? 25th Place + Runner up
? 50th Place + Runner up

PEDAL SLAM e-Bike Open (Cash & Prizes)

Trails – We typically choose a mix of Blue and Black trails to make it accessible for more people.
Timed Segments – Within the trails there is timed segments. Ride the trails as many times as you like over the competition period. Submit ALL your times and your fastest times will be used for your place.

Yes! that’s what this event is all about, giving everyone a chance to get involved with the mountain bike community and have a chance to win. Most importantly, have fun and ride your bike. Any bike!
If there are any severe weather warnings from the local government we will PAUSE the event for the day and no times will be counted. Follow the event website and social media pages to stay up to date. Otherwise, any day in the competition period will count towards your times.
During the competition period it will be a virtual event but at the end we plan to have a winners presentation session where we will hand out the cash & prizes and talk about bikes (and probably beer). As always, this is COVID dependent so we will wait to make the announcement but we want this to be social so hopefully we can make it happen!
Yes, as long as you declare that you’re riding an e-bike you can compete in the e-bike Group. As there is a smaller amount of riders in this group we only have Winner and Runner up cash and prizes. If the Group becomes large we will consider to split it into quarters like the Pedal Slam Open.
Riders who get serious about being No.1 with fastest time overall are going to try everything they can to bend the rules to their advantage. After lots of testing we’ve got it covered so just ride your best and we’ll take care of the rest. Nobody will know what the best time is, or which segments of the trails count towards their times until the end of the event and the rides are recorded so if we need to get into the details, we can. After registering for the event we will share some additional rules and guidelines designed to make it fair for everyone.
We use GPS and common apps such as Trail Forks and Strava to record your times and we will automatically add them to the event times for each entrant.
Yes, if you choose to withdraw you can get your money back within 7 days of entry, only if you have not been sent any promotional or event material that incurs a cost to the organizers. The booking fee will not be refunded. The booking fee covers transaction costs for payment providers.
Just go to our Contact page and submit your questions and we’ll reply to you quickly.
