Jenna Makgill Wins FAST FORWARD

June 26, 2010

Former World Courier Champ and local star Jenna Makgill took out first place today in 35 mins 26 seconds over the taxing 17km race around Auckland. Her partner Max came in 2nd place in 35mins 53 secs and Ken White came in 3rd in 36 min 30 sec. 24 racers battled to get through the 7 checkpoints.

Max Jenna and Ken podium champs.

Running start

Thanks to the first prize cheque from DVS and Cadence, combined with the entry fees, and the loot made form the generous bidders in the after race auction we managed to raise just over $1400 for Jenna to go towards the airfare to get her to Fast Friday in SF. Jenna’s a student so we are having an online auction of some stuff in the following weeks to raise some more money to make sure she get there.

Thanks to everyone who came out and raced and was part of it today – more photos soon – Mr Hagan Hill was out shooting SLR today and I know he would have got some doozies.

WELL DONE JENNA! We are so proud to be able to have you represent NZ for Fast Friday!

After racing in Fast Forward tomorrow, Callum Dowie, AKA Calashnikov, AKA Calloy (’cause he’s hard as metal) is DJ’ing tomorrow night at the D.O.C. on K Rd.

Whether the Weather

June 25, 2010

It’s pretty gloomy and wet out there today. The Metvuw forecast is for showers tomorrow, so this heavy rain hopefully should move away for the race.

Fast Forward Shutterbugs

June 23, 2010

If you are racing in Fast Forward on Saturday – you will have to bring a digital camera or a device that can take photos on the move. At each checkpoint you will have to take a photo of yourself infront of a landmark at the location. To be able to win the race you must be able to show the photos taken in sequence at each checkpoint in order they will be listed. A list will be handed out to each racer just before the start of the race. Fun times!!

Here are some shots of the Portland FF from Pedal Consumption if you didn’t peep them:

New Fast Forward format- it’s a RACE !!

June 18, 2010

Breaking News! We will be holding Fast Forward in Auckland as a street race instead of sprints. After much discussion and the addition of some legal jargon into the rider waivers we have cancelled the road closure. This means that we can put the budget back into the 1st prize to go towards the winners airfare to San Francisco for the Fast Friday final. We have also made the entry fee $20 now, but you get a commemorative Fast Friday Auckland edition tee, especially made for us by DVS and Cadence in the US and shipped over by the kind folks. This is to help boost the funds to help get the winner on a plane. Ontop of this we will be having an auction at TWhites Bikes to sell off 4 pairs of DVS Cadence shoes and a black H+Son rim set to add to the kitty. More soon!
