From 14 year old Santa Cruz Jr Syndicate racer Cierra Smith‘s dad:

“So as a testament to how cool the Ashland race is.  SOMBA (the race organizer) sent Cierra a letter stating that along with her first in Cat 1, she also placed the 3rd fastest overall women’s time including Pro women, so they sent her another medal for 3rd overall time and a check for $50.00.

She got her first payday….and didn’t even know it. : )

I thought it was very cool of them.”Wil Smith
