How it works

Riders get two poker cards at the start, and two at each rest stop. The remainder of their cards are drawn at the finish.

  • 10 milers – draw a total of 7 cards
  • 25 milers – draw a total of 7 cards
  • 100 km – draw a total of 9 cards

At the end of the ride, riders choose their best five-card poker hand from their drawn cards. Riders also have the option or purchasing additional cards to enhance their poker hands for $5 a piece. The best three hands are awarded prizes. This is a non-timed event. Winners are based on poker hands, not finish times.
