Xc: Top Gear Cycles Craters Classic (taupo)

Postby XCrazy on Sun 17/May/09 10:49pm

Top Gear Cycles Craters Classic, Wairakei Forest

Sunday 19 July 2009
9.00 am Registration for a 10.00 am start.

Enter the 18 km Fun Course or the 36 km Classic Course.
Get into it! These are worthy courses, mainly singletrack on a great all-weather pumic surface.
There will be certificates for all placegetters, and thanks to event sponsor Top Gear Cycles, there will be some great spot prizes.

See http://www.biketaupo.org.nz/content/view/394/1/ for more details

Awesome event run by the Taupo MTB club, 1 big loop with minimal 4WD track. Leave your mud tires at home because there won't be much mud around :D

Looks like a bit of fun - if I've got the gas money I'll head up, as I've only ridden Craters once before, and that was 3 years ago! :)

I might need a ride up so if you can hook me up with a ride you would be welcome to stay at my house

I can't seem to find one, to be perfectly honest the club can be quite backwards a lot of the time. The course will take in pretty much every track in the main craters area. See attached map of park (Switchback and drone no longer exist).
