ABOUT

Welcome to the Onewheel Racing League, home of the infamous Race for the Rail! 2021 was one for history books so we decided to go even bigger for 2022... and we aren’t just talking about the GT. This year, 16 men and 12 women will be duking it out for the title of fastest Onewheel rider alive. And for the first time, we will be posting Rider Rankings. You can see the first rankings here based on last year’s ORL race performance. 

 

There are many opportunities to get a ticket to 2022’s big show. First, we are hosting two qualifying races in which the top four (4) men and women will directly advance to Race for the Rail. That leaves six (6) spots for the men and two (2) for the women for at-large bids. You can be considered for an at-large bid, by placing well in one of the three (3) sanctioned Onewheel race events listed below. The winners of these sanctioned events will also receive a paid trip to the ORL Regional Qualifier of their choosing where they will automatically advance to the bracketed races.
