Stephanie Bellissimo, Ashley Hueckstaedt and Danielle Ralston line up for the first round of women's tricycle races at McShane's Bar and Grill on Tuesday night. Ralston advanced to the finals to win the money that night.

Riders race over to complete their pushup before advancing onto the last lap. In each final round, riders must complete two laps followed by spinning in circles (for women) or perform pushups (for men) before ending their last lap in the opposite direction. The winner receives $25. (Mason Trinca/Emerald)
