Easter Track Weekend.
Friday April 22nd – Sunday April 24th (Easter Weekend)
Auckland, New Zealand
With two weeks to go until Easter weekend, please find some participant information & contact info for the big weekend ahead. I’ve decided to put this in a new thread so it doesn’t get lost in the other one. A huge thanks to the entire RESURRECTION organizing commitee for taking time out of their personal lives to get their respective events organized and sorted, it’s been a huge effort from everyone involved!
OFFICIAL PARTICIPANT INFORMATION
COMPETITOR ENTRY: A $20 Entry fee will be applied which will go into a communal fund to help with reimbursing the costs of running all of these events and the weekend. This one-off entry fee will ensure you entry to every competition event for the weekend, as well as a small exclusive competitor’s pack. RESURRECTION 2011 is organized entirely by an independent committee of fixed gear clubs and teams, and not by any corporate entity. All events are organized and funded by the goodwill of the individual teams, clubs, and supporters. You can either register at the first event (Opening Ride/King Of The Hill), or you can pre-register your entry, starting today (Friday 8/4/11) at T White’s Bikes, 132 Symonds St, Auckland.
PRIZES: Each individual competition event (King Of The Hill, Asylum Criterium, 21 Alley Cat) will have prizes for the winning rider from various companies assisting with providing prizes. Prizes will be announced shortly, before the weekend!
AWARDS CEREMONY: Unlike previous years, there will be no official points championship, but at the end of the weekend at the closing party we’ll be hosting an awards ceremony, utilizing a rider nominated award system that will see a host of prizes awarded to everything from the best rider of the weekend, to the best bike setup, to the best bail. A complete community effort.
OFFICIAL 2011 EVENT OVERVIEWS:
1. THE OPENING RIDE.
Meet & Greet, huge group ride.
contact: James Lowe – firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday 6:00PM, Outside Vodafone Building, Halsey St, Auckland. Leaving 6:30PM sharp.
A huge group ride to kick off the festivities for the weekend, and to meet fellow riders from all over town and those who have come up from all over the country! Anyone can join in on the big group ride, whether you’re a competitor or not. It’s all about getting everyone together at one place with bikes and seeing how many people we can round up! Meet outside Vodafone building on Halsey St, register as a competitor for the weekend, and join everyone for a quick chat before a big, easy and cruisey group ride through the Tank Farm, Westhaven Marina, and back through downtown, ending at the first competition event of RESURRECTION ’11 – Qubic’s King Of The Hill.
Helmets and (especially) lights are recommended.
2. QUBIC’S KING OF THE HILL (COMPETITION EVENT #1)
Parnell Hill Sprints.
contact: James Lowe – email@example.com
Friday, after opening ride at bottom of Parnell Hill (off The Strand, Shipwright Lane)
Test your mettle, settle your beef. The inaugural competition event will see riders head up mano a mano and charge up the first stretch of Parnell hill in an effort to see who’s got the biggest beef out of them all. The rules are pretty simple: riders will ride either in pairs in a heads-up format, or in heats of 4 depending on the number of competitors, in a straight elimination format. The quickest up the hill at the end of the elimination rounds wins. Fixed wheel bikes only, no BMXes. Gearing is completely up to you, but you will have to run the same gear throughout the night. The night wraps up with a BBQ and a little rowdiness behind Qubic Store, 160 Broadway Newmarket.
3. STEADY ROLLIN’ ASYLUM CRITERIUM (COMPETITION EVENT #2)
Criterium Race @ Unitec Auckland.
contact: Ivan Mennim – Ivan.Mennim@nz.redbull.com
Saturday 1:00PM @ UNITEC, 139 Carrington Road, Mt Albert. Entrance via GATE 4!
The infamous Steady Rollin’ Asylum Criterium returns for the third year running! Set in the backdrop of UNITEC, an ex-mental asylum, this ~10km criterium course will see the traditional running start lead into a race of supremacy through twisty lanes and turns. One of the most exciting events of previous years, the race is fast and fierce; the first one across the finish line wins. After the event riders will get time to chill and hang out, whilst being serenaded by the calming beats and soothing voice of DJ J-Swizz and the Red Bull Hummer.
4. SKULL BIKE CLUB BOOZE CRUISE
contact: Teva Chonon or Tim White – firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 6:00PM @ T WHITE’S BIKES, 132 Symonds St Auckland.
The world famous Skull Bike Club Booze Cruise, presented by the home of all playa-hating playas, T White’s Bikes. I’m not quite sure what the rules are to this event, or even if any exist. BYO beverage, and bring a bike. Where does the cruise end? Who really knows. Any kind of bike is welcome, so long as you can booze and cruise. Helmets recommended, as they are quite fun to drink out of. Just be there… or be sober.
5. CGK/CGG “21” ALLEY CAT. (COMPETITION EVENT #3)
Sunday 3:00PM @ Britomart Carpark. Race start at 4:00PM SHARP.
The pinnacle race of the weekend, the CGK and CGGhave combined forces to throw down “21”; a unique alley cat styled race with the aim of accumulating 21 kilometers first.
Riders will each receive a ’21’ Race Card with their RESURRECTION ’11 competitor’s pack, with each race card showing a set of numbers on the back.These numbers represent dice rolls, the first number will have been already punched randomly, and this will be your first check point.
This race involves 6 check points, the order in which you will go to these check points will be determined by the numbers you roll on the dice.
Your race card has been pre punched with a (3), when the race starts you will go to the 3KM check point, have your (3) counter punched and return to Britomart Carpark to roll the dice to get your next checkpoint/amount of kilometers.
Each check point is half the amount of KM’s away, ie (3) is 1.5KM from Britomart Carpark thus totaling 3KM on your return.
Without rolling the dice you will not get a number punched, without having the number punched the person at the checkpoint will not counter punch it thus resulting in you earning no kilometers towards your total.
Brakes are allowed yet will be penalized with an extra check point.
Helmets are recommended.
6. CBTW AWARD CEREMONY & CLOSING PARTY.
We’re done. Fuck it, let’s drink.
contact: Cameron Lamb
Sunday evening 6:00PM @ Tyler Street Garage, Quay St (Britomart).
To close off the weekend’s festivities, City By The Water is organizing the closing party, where we can drink the weekend’s sorrows away and lament on stories from the booze cruise. An awards ceremony will be held with the awards being distributed in a rider-voted format, with awards ranging from best rider to the best bail of the weekend. More details to be announced soon, but be sure you don’t miss this one to cap the weekend off.
