Being a point person for organizing Chariot Wars I hear rumors of who's going to be competing. Already there is talk of more teams than ever before, and maybe it's just talk... But maybe not!

Portland, OR - 9 teams and growing!
Seattle, WA - 3 teams
Los Angeles, CA - 1 team
Salt Lake City, UT - 1 team?
Boulder, CO - 1 team
Richmond, VA - 1 team

And Maybe...
Vancouver, BC?!
San Diego, CA?!

Ben Hurt II had 27 teams, so who knows...

The rules for 2011

Team Sexxon reviewed past Chariot Wars and came up for some rules for this year's event. We agreed we want to see as many people out competing and having a damn good time as possible.  Remember the second Chariot Wars that had 27 teams? Yeah, like that, only this year it'll REALLY blow your mind. So I'm post rules to ensure all of you can get your teams together and start building your shit.

1. Your team must use a Bicycle pulled Chariot.

2. Battle cars can enter, but they cannot win.

3. 2 to 3 people per team.

4.All teams must undergo a private safety check of ALL weapons before they're allowed to compete. (we don't want to ruin your surprises, we just want to make sure they're safe)

5. If a rider becomes disconnected from their bicycle/chariot at any time, or if the bicycle/chariot is no longer rolling your team is OUT.

6. The crowd is not allowed to touch any competitors/Bicycles/chariots.

Lastly: NO GLASS! (who fucking brings glass to a biking event anyway?)

Goon squad will be in full effect to ensure everyone's fun and safety.

These rules are not intended to hinder anyone or stifle any creativity, don't even START about that crap. Building a solid chariot, engineering a hitch that works/doesn't break, and making sure your being as safe as possible while beating the crap out of your friends is hard work and it's part of the challenge of chariot wars. We want a bunch of people out there, a ton of chariots, and we DEFINITELY do not want anyone to get seriously injured.

The Trophy will be passed on...
