Hi all,

just a couple of things we are getting questions about:

All bikes being rode that are on a lap - MUST have a number plate. No plate no transport.

All riders who are doing a lap - MUST have a transponder, all transponders must be returned at the end of the event, or when you have had enough ($125 non return fee if lost or not returned).

All vehicles entering the forest must have and display a 'parking permit' - this will be given to you alongwith your plate and transponder.

Registration:

5.00pm till 9.00pm at Kiwi Bike

6.00am to 7.00am at the back gate.

7.00am onwards at race HQ.

Race Start:

The first truck will leave the back gate at 0645, once at the top drop off........ in the words of the late and great Freddie Mercury, 'Get on your bike and ride'.

The clock starts ticking at 0700.

So if you want to be on the 1st truck you will have to be there in good time - first come first served.

Shuttles will leave at staggered intervals (maybe a minute in the case of the the 1st trucks)

There will be shuttles waiting at the pickup point (normal pickup - opposite south star shuttle queue) for those who are after a flyer.

All riders must return through the event village to have thier lap recorded by the electronic timing transponder system.

Laps are:

2 x Jumps (little red and huckleberry)

2 x Corners (as above but with end section of corners which will be clearly marked)

2 x DH - any line - care is to be taken when merging with other lines.

1 x Billy T - G'Rock - Chestnut - Roller Coaster and Extension - Sweet and sour into Nice Rd and into village (it will be marked).

Once you have completed your minimum laps - do what you want!

Duration:

10 hours & HQ at the clearing like last year.

Bring a patio heater if you have one!

See you there!

So will parents be able to get into the forest in the car to bring food supplies around lunch time in if they show a parking permit?

No, Unfortunately we are only wanting vehicles to enter the forest once. We have to keep the forest gate locked at all times and do not have the resources to place someone on the gate all day for the odd person to come and go. (That would be a sad job wouldn't it) Hope this clarifies things for you.
