The Blatant Beks
The noise. The flash. For the swoop bikers who call themselves the Blatant Beks, there's nothing better than when something blows up on the track.
Founded by Bangcap, a seasoned swoop rider, and a mechanic named Old Morta, the Blatant Beks are often compared to the Tarisian gang that shares their namesake, the Hidden Beks--much to the annoyance of Bangcap, who seems to only prioritize figuring out how to make explosions bigger and louder.
Most of the Beks, if not all, share Bangcap's affinity for pyrotechnics, which are known in the swoop world as the gang's signature. Fans don't consider a rally a complete success unless they see the Blatant Beks destroy something beyond repair.
Anyone who rides for the Beks must adhere to this style, and they'll no doubt use that same philosophy to put on a blazing show for the spectators at the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally. This Rally's sure to have no shortage of loud and fiery blasts!

One of the oldest crews in the swoop world, the riders of Horizon's Razor have been blazing past the competition for decades. Who founded Horizon's Razor is knowledge lost to time, as the Razors don't have leaders. Instead, they tend to follow whoever is the fastest rider in the current moment.
A lack of organized hierarchy has caused many dilemmas for the crew. Foolhardy behavior and disagreements that turn to infighting are commonplace. In their most recent predicament, the Razors pushed themselves into an interminable debt after placing many ill-advised and risky bets.
Despite the instability within the crew, Horizon's Razor has no shortage of faithful fans who are completely enamored by these riders and their daredevil speed. Many have even been known to help the Razors out of tricky situations.
Whispers are spreading that the Razors have come to the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally not only to impress, but to climb their way out of the trouble they find themselves in. Could this Rally be the comeback Horizon's Razor has been waiting for?

The Pit Screamers
Known for inventing new death-defying stunts and swoop biking tricks for as long as anyone can remember, the Pit Screamers' piloting skills are unmatched throughout the sport.
Raossk, their current leader, drives the gang to ever-greater (and more dangerous) tricks. Some see his single-minded focus as an asset to the group, but not all agree with his decisions. Regardless, the Pit Screamers are loved by fans all over the galaxy--and for good reason.

The History of Swoop Biking
Congratulations! You've just taken your first steps toward joining the pantheon of the most famous (and infamous!) crews in the history of swoop bikes. You stand ready to take part in the galaxy's most esteemed and distinguished pastime--and you're gonna have a blast doing it!
Now, to understand swoop riding, you must understand where it originated from--and if you figure that out, can you let us know? We're pretty sure it started on Taris, but since it blew up (it was a whole thing) we don't know for sure.
Even if it didn't start there, Taris was still a pretty important part of the swoop world (did you know Revan won a big swoop event there?), and after it got destroyed, the circuit took a huge hit. Luckily, we still had other swoop tracks to compete on, like the ones on Tatooine, Nar Shaddaa, Onderon, and Manaan.
For centuries, swoop biking has been an awfully popular sport, and even the most inexperienced newbie (that's you!) is more than welcome to participate, so long as they got a bike! So, what kind of rider will you be? Are you a Hidden Bek, looking to use your potential fame and name recognition to help the little people? Or are you a Black Seraph, just itching to pick a fight and make some creds?

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally
Conflict rages across the galaxy, and for many, entertainment and frivolity have taken a backseat. But a little thing like war won't be enough to stop the wildest swoop gangs from celebrating the biggest show on the circuit in over one hundred years.
Emerging from their usual underground stadiums, swoop riders and their most dedicated fans have descended on a multitude of planets for the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally, an event intended to show citizens of the galaxy the virtues of swoop riding--like how to have the time of their lives!
Though resources are scarce, swoop crews are nothing if not resourceful. Explosives, blasters, and souped-up gadgets scavenged from decommissioned starships and downed shuttles are all utilized by swoop gangs to make their bikes the fastest and fiercest of them all. The Rally's challenge courses, vendor stalls, and spectator stands can be erected and deconstructed in the blink of an eye.
Anyone daring enough to test their swoop skills against these veteran riders has an open invitation to participate in the Rally, but only those who can make the crowd go wild will reap the rewards!
