Many of the Dryland loyal supporters take part in multiple Dryland events in a calendar year and often across different disciplines. Athletes stand the chance to qualify for between 5% and 60% value back on their event entries, with the higher tiers qualifying for even more benefits.



The level of value back offered is determined by the rider’s qualifying tier level. The opening tier levels are determined by the number of events the participant successfully completed during the last complete run of events.
