The Fraser Coast lads came down and did well… really well!
The Cystic Fibrosis Charity Race Day has successfully concluded and it would seem everyone really enjoyed themselves. Photos and an event write-up will be uploaded by the end of the week but for now here are the race results. Congratulations to Jamie Cardiff (2hr winner), Chris Bond (1hr race winner) and Kara Reading (Fastest Female) and also best crash prize winner Jason Taylor. A great big thanks to all racers, spectators and our volunteers. And another big thanks to Paul and Trish Vandeleur for hosting us on their beautiful land.
We’ve had a last minute rush of participants sign-on so everything is going ahead as planned! It’s going to be a good day with a good amount of riders, good weather and good beer (Paul also has a fire drum ready to go to keep us warm).
Check-in opens at 7.30am. We will be there ready to sign you in and hand out the number plates so come out early to have a practice lap and get your bearings.
Race 1 (1hr) – starts at 8.30am
Race 2 (2hr) – starts at 10am-ish
Prizes and beer – 12 noon-ish (once the 2nd race has finished)
Food and drinks
We are putting on a free sausage sizzle and will have water and soft-drinks available. Trish might be baking some delicious sugar-coma causing cakes or slices too! There will be beers from Brouhaha Brewery available for a gold coin donation after the races.
Presenting “Little Rocketman”
In addition to the prize for the winners, we have a heap of prizes donated by our sponsors which will go into a lucky draw so everyone has a chance to win. We will have a prize for other things as well such as best leap over Paul’s new jump feature “Little Rocketman“.
Parking and Spectators
Below is the map showing where to park and where to spectate. We don’t want cars along the side of driveway this time as it’s a bugger moving them all out and we need the space for overtaking.
In a desperate attempt to stop the rain, last night I tried Grandma’s ye olde pagan MTB ritual at Parklands. Now obviously, as today’s weather indicates, I stuffed up. I went through and checked each step again and again and then I realised that the full moon is tonight!! IDIOT!! I can’t believe I made such a simple mistake! My hamstrings are killing me from all that twerking!
But long story short – the race day is postponed until things get dry again. Stay tuned!
PS: Sorry to that guy on a night ride and everyone watch out for a dead goat near Tazer trail.
Grandma’s Ye Olde pagan recipe cards are so handy
