MK Show and Shine Entry Rules and Categories
« on: August 15, 2016, 11:53 AM »
Here are the official Show and Shine categories, the entry criteria and the guidelines for how we judge the bikes.

We will be holding registration for the show and shine on Saturday and Sunday so we can get all the bikes entered and so that the admin and mods do not spend all Sunday working their asses off (as usual). Please come and find us on RADBMX stand in the main arena.

----------------------------------------

Radbmx® Milton Keynes Show and Shine Entry criteria and rules.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL SHOW AND SHINE CATEGORIES ( WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NEW SCHOOL RETRO AND 'BUILT TO RIDE' ) ARE JUDGED TO A CONCOURSE STANDARD.

This means that entries will be marked down for reproduction parts, heavy refinishing of OG parts & incorrect era parts. Originality is the standard it is judged on so complete OG survivors fit into the categories.

Please remember to give as much information on the front/back of your entry card, or please put additional information with your entry. The more information we have about an entry the better, the more informed a decision we can make.

All bikes that are to be entered have to be in the show & shine tents on the Sunday which will make it easier on the judges, so they do not have to walk all over the event looking for bikes. Bikes outside of the main arena will not be considered.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN BIKE STAND - we do not supply them and any bike without one will be disqualified.  Please note that leaning a bike against the tent post or another bike does not count as having a stand.

Judging this year will be per category i.e. we have seperate judges for each category.  This way the job will only take 30 minutes instead of all afternoon.

We will have a judging over-lord fromt he RADBMX Admin (all hail the over-lord), whose decision is final in the event of a tie or problem with a bike.

Prizes are 1st, 2nd, 3rd trophies along with a highly commended medal for one more entry per category.


THE CATEGORIES

Vintage Race (pre 1980)  -  All Bikes from the 1970s.
Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctnes.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.


OS Race -  Race inspired bikes from 1980 until 1988
.  High end race bikes in with high end parts.  Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctness.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.



OS Freestyle -  Freestyle bikes from 1980 until 1988.

Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctnes.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.



OS & MS Cruiser -  24 and 26 inch cruiser bikes.

Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctness.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.



OS Street  - Street bikes.  These are considered to be low end, low cost bikes in the mould of low end Burner (not aero pro, pro Burner etc), Pirannah, BH, Malborough, Scorpion etc. Cheap parts and low quality parts welcomed and expected.  This is a category for the kind of bikes our parents bought us as our first BMX.  If you know your bike does not belong in this category then please do not try to bend the rules by making excuses that you used to ride it down the local park.
THIS IS NOT A CATEGORY FOR HIGH END BIKES WITH HIGH END PARTS THAT WERE RIDDEN ON THE STREET AT SOME STAGE.



MS Freestyle
- Midschool Freestyle bikes .   
Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctness.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.



MS Race - Midschool Race bikes.   
Bikes will be judged on OE condition, era and part correctness.  Reproduction and copy parts will cause the bike to be marked down when judging.



NS Retro - New school retro bikes, V-Brakes, U-Brakes, Canti-Brakes etc, Newschool bikes, Quadangle Looptails, Haro re-release bikes, Skyway TA re-release, etc.  The new releases of old bikes AND new school bikes with an oldschool feel or look.


OS/MS/NS 'Built to ride' Open - Anything goes, it doesn't have to be era or part correct, if you ride it you can enter it and you can win with it. Its your pub rider, chip shop hack, or your park / race bike. It's a bmx that has been used, loved and abused! Bikes will be judged for how much 'soul' they have :-) New and unused parts such as minty grips, unworn tyres and unscuffed pedals will cause the bike to be marked down when judging. This is not a concourse category!

Good to see the hard work put into sorting these categories has been kept as was, despite people constantly trying to change dates etc.  Just one question - how come there is no pit/mini category anymore?

As Rob said, way too much effort for very little entries. I will miss as love the little ones, that Bandito on vectors and skinnies was just awesome
