Race for the Rail Coming to Snowbasin
28 Jul, 2021
Future Motion, makers of Onewheel, will host their biggest and most ambitious racing competition to date, the Race for the Rail, at Utah’s Snowbasin Resort on July 30-31. Twenty of the best Onewheel riders will descend Snowbasin’s ski slopes in a boardercross-style race for a chance to take home a share of the record $20,000 prize purse. The women’s race streams live on Onewheel’s YouTube channel at 6 pm CMT July 30, and the men’s race streams live at 6 pm CMT July 31.
The competition features riders who have earned a shot at the title through the Onewheel Racing League’s 3 National Qualifying events. Racers will be placed into brackets and descend off-road trails four at a time, with the two fastest riders advancing to the next round.
“This is the most entertaining sporting event you’ve never seen, guaranteed,” says Future Motion Chief Evangelist Jack Mudd. “Incredible Onewheel riders sending it down ski slopes, jockeying for a share of $20,000 – do yourself a favor and tune in.”
Transition Productions will live stream the event, the same team that presents the World Surf League and the Dew Tour. Future Motion has also established a partnership with Fuel TV, the global home of action sports on television, who will re-broadcast the action to over 700 million devices in over 100 countries worldwide.
“Onewheel is one of the fastest-growing sports, and the evolution of this Race is a testament to that. We’re incredibly excited to have Fuel TV as a distribution partner to share this incredible event with the world,” remarks Mudd.
The top men’s and women’s finishers will each take home $10,000 in winnings. Fans can fill out a bracket on Onewheel’s website starting July 28 for a chance to win $5,000. Find out more information on Race for the Rail and fill out a bracket when available on Onewheel’s Race for the Rail webpage.
