Message from Big Rich Klein, CEO/President of WE Rock Events 
Teams, spectators and vendors will find great weather awaiting them in Cedar City. Temps in the mid 70’s are forecasted with clear skies and only a slight breeze. As everyone knows, Iron County’s Three Peaks Recreation Area is a premiere event site, with great rock formations, easy access and and spectator friendly terrain. Teams will find the terrain similar to years’ past, but with new lines and bigger bonuses. Forty or more competitors will be competing at this event, all hoping to drive well enough to make an appearance on the podium, but first the pros will have to beat the RaptoWorx shootout course on Sunday afternoon.
What is W.E. ROCK? 
The sport of World Extreme Rock Crawling or W.E. ROCK as it is known to our fans is all about challenging driver and machine. Competitors build amazing vehicles to drive over the most extreme obstacles our world renowned course designer (Josh England) can dream up. You will see vehicles perform maneuvers you never thought possible. Conquering large boulders, steep climbs, rock ledges and massive drops, all while avoiding strategically placed cones. Depending on the class the competitors choose to compete in their vehicle must follow some basic build rules and safety requirements. The rules are designed to keep each class fair while allowing the builder freedom to engineer the most competitive vehicle they can. Once on the course the driver and spotter have 10 minutes to navigate 3-4 gates (set of cones) without hitting any cones and as few backups as possible. Each cone hit or backup they take adds points to their score and the team with the lowest score wins. The courses are designed to provide the most action for the spectators throughout the weekend and force drivers to push what they have built to the limits.
