Any Onewheel self-balancing electric Trailboard and any modification is accepted. This includes any model including Pint, XR, GT, Magwheel or VESC. The Trailboard does not need to be a Onewheel, but it does need to be ridden like a skateboard. EUCs do not qualify. There are no board classes, race what you bring!
The Underground understands concerns related to racing on a non supervised GPS based circuit. Race validation can be requested for any Hermes time in question. Validation can be done through Hermes, video evidence, witnesses and / or a re-race. POV video is not required, but recommended.
It’s the goal of the Underground to limit errors through proper design of the race trails, but some errors are unavoidable. Any race times that show a unfair advantage due to error will be removed.
Some trails do not record correctly for various reasons. The organizers will monitor each trail for errors and reserve the right to adjust or remove any trail if it isn't recording properly. These adjustments can alter standings and race times. Any adjustment shall be done prior to the halfway point in the season.
It is the riders responsibility to know the course. Courses MUST be raced as designed and any deviation from the course or “gaming” the segment is not allowed. Any race times that don’t meet the course requirements, intentional or unintentional, will be removed.
Although we are racing, our priority is to maintain trail access. Traffic is part of racing a open course and a factor for all. The community is watching. If you have a problem while racing a trail, please contact admin so we can get ahead of it. If there is an etiquette violation that comes to our attention without prior knowledge, the rider(s) can be disqualified for that day or banned permanently.
