Hey MTB riders.
The event organisers for the Tunnel Gully MTB Relay have asked us to help spread the word about the fantastic event they are trying to get off the ground. So here are some of the details.
Your team can include up to five riders, racing relay style through some of the best 4wd and single track around. You can race for either 6 or 12 hours.
You pick the number of people in your team, you pick the length of time you want to race, you pick your team race order, and you pick how often you ride. It's as easy as that!
12 hour teams will start at 8am on Saturday morning. 6 hour teams will start at 2pm on Saturday. All riders finish at 8pm Saturday, with a prize giving to follow.
Each team gets allocated their ‘home’ spot. This is where you will transition. You can take along anything that you need to make yourselves comfortable (that can fit in a 3m by 3m allocation). Gas BBQ’s are permitted but no open flames. Parking will be separate to the team base areas.
There are several event categories that cater for the wide range of skill and fitness, from weekend warriors to hard out racers. It also caters to those that want to ride the whole thing solo.
So, grab a few mates, complete the details below and get entering.
They have the tracks ready and bedded in. They have the course defined. They have helpers, supporters, and a great commitment from Upper Hutt City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council. And, not just for this year, but for this race to become an annual event.
What they don’t have however are ENTRIES.
