Xc: Summerhill Monday Night Racing, Tauranga

Postby dented on Mon 5/Jan/09 10:11am

Hosted by MTB Tauranga Inc.

Every Monday evening right through Summer until daylight savings ends. (Lights are not required)
Racing will start at 7pm sharp, so you need to be up there at 6.45 to sign the waiver, pay the entry, and get the lowdown on that days course.
It will be an all-in mass start, on a Cross-country styled course, and will be run in multi-lap format. ie: You complete as many laps as you feel comfortable. Keep circulating until 7.50pm, but after that you cannot start a new lap. A short prizegiving will be held after the last rider is home, normally about 8pm. Chocolate Fish for category winners. This is intended to be a casual and friendly way to hit the local trails, with a touch of competition thrown in to spice it up. Here is your way to shed some excess weight from all the booze and turkey you consumed over Xmas, and meet some fellow like-minded mountain bikers in a stress-free environment.
Categorys are:-
Junior Men (16 and under at 1 Jan 2009)
Senior Men (35 and over at 1 Jan 2009)
Open Men
Women

The official Series starts on Monday Jan 12, 2009.
Every week the results table will be updated and you can follow the series points on the MTB Tauranga website
At the end of the Series there will be prizes rewarding consistency and improvement throughout the series.
ALL WELCOME - Entry fee payable every Monday is $2 for MTB Tauranga club-members, and $5 for others. (Note: $1 from every entry goes to 'Summerhill Recreational Farm Trails', towards the maintenance and development of trails at Summerhill)

BUMP.

Series starts this coming Monday. No pre-entry, just do it all on the night. This is a casual race series, that is destined to get serious by the end of Summer.
All welcome, spread the word please, the more the merrier!

BUMP

Could be the biggest turnout ever tonight folks, small article under 'Whats On' in last weeks 'Weekend Sun'. Plus the turnout has been on the up every week anyway. Round 4 of the Series, but don't be shy if you have't' been before, its never to late to get involved.

Sweetas, although by then I may be absent for a couple of weeks. Judging by the scan we had a couple of hours ago, our #3 will be a couple of weeks old by Early March :butbut:
