On February 1, a global wake racing tournament goes down in Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason, the free trial version of the delayed Xbox One game. Nearly one million players have downloaded Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason, making it the most popular Xbox One demo.

Preseason International Champions, as this tournament is being called, will catalogue racers' best times on both national and international leaderboards. On February 28, the best racer will win a golden wake racer in the game, while all participants who manage to set the best time in their home country will receive a silver wake racer. Finally, all participants from the top racer's country will unlock a special wake racer covered in a livery based on that country's flag.

Unique daily challenges will also be presented to players throughout February, yielding rewards only accessible during this event. And all rewards will carry into the final version of Kinect Sports Rivals when it launches this spring. In order to be eligible for these prizes, you'll need to download the Kinect Sports Rivals Hub companion app.
