Cable or hydro? :eh: You'll need the cable pull adjuster thingys for roadie levers too, I think?

Hah, everyone puts all their effort into making a costume for SSWC, but for CX Champs everyone is too busy setting up their bike! :D

Re:nz Cyclocross Champs 2010 - Important Update!!

Postby IL Treno Dolore on Sat 14/Aug/10 10:31pm

Hi all, due a bit of fail in double checking our entry form, the entrance to the track for NZCX Champs on Sunday the 29th August, will be from the Pukete rd entrance (Not Maui st).

It will be well signposted (Coming from Auckland/North or Wellington/South on SH1, Pukete rd is on the North side of Te Rapa industrial area/The Base shopping centre and is off SH1 - easy peasy!). This where we have also held the North Island cup, Pukete Spaghetti races etc.

We did a course check today with Vincenzo(he can walk), Cookie the Rookie, Cobra, Focker and Ms TMP Koobs.....all agreed if the weather keeps up the good work, its going to be faster than last year, more fun (muddier)and definitely a suffer-fest!

We've got barriers (400mm high) to bunny hop over (if you can), steps to run up (Brutal freeride' idea - thanks Ken), roots, fast gravel road, singletrack and definitely the Rhino pit :satan: Spectating is going to awesome - all within close proximity of the race village.

Km's per lap = approx 2.5km - 3km (weather dependant).

There will be a NEW SCOTT CX bike for you to test ride also - thanks to our sponsors Cycology (and Scotty will be racing one). Plenty of other spotties and prizes also, thanks to our generous sponsors.


DON'T FORGET TO GET YOUR ENTRY IN BY FRIDAY THE 20th AUGUST IF YOU WANT A PERSONALISED NUMBER PLATE!

The defending champ got his entry and special name in already :sneaky: :thumbsup:

Entries on the day just get a normal number plate sorry :cry:

We'll have hot frites, sausages etc and make sure you bring ya kids along to battle it out in the mini rhino pit - The Chuckie cross fundraiser ride! This fun and we all know the kids love the mud and its good intro into the fun of Cross :thumbsup:

Rick (Chucks dad) is coming up all the waaaay from Wanaka to represent the Redwood clan (and check Focker is still making good coffee with the Saeco Chic :blush: ).

Thanks to all that have pre-entered so far - keep em' coming - proceeds all for a great cause as well remember!

Sounds like an awesome course, bring on the Rhino pit! Mind you, last year it took a while to get my fishnets off with all that mud in my fur... :sneaky: :angry:

Course online soon once Garminized?

Bring on the Kiwi Frites.
