The main event will run according to the official KPL standard and will award overall winners in Men’s and Women’s divisions that will count towards competitors overall world ranking.  However, staying true to the grassroots nature of this unique event put on by the riders themselves, there will also be new and exciting awards and competitions that are sure to keep things interesting throughout the week like the ION King and Queen of the Kicker Challenge as well as other honors that are yet to be announced.
