The aim of this event is to encourage the school team spirit.
Week 4 consists of a Sport Grade race and a Teams SINGLETRACKS XC lap race.
Race 1 is a non competitive Sport Grade individual race and will be using the Core XC Loop. This is an option for any Sport Grade riders or riders who are unable to create a team due to numbers.
Race 2 is a Teams race and will be using the Core XC Loop with the addition of Uppercrust & Murphs, and Upload & Download.
Teams will consist of 3 riders.
There will be Open teams (can include males, females, and any age), or Female teams (females of any age), and ‘U15’ teams (any combination U15)
All riders that cannot form a team will be catered for in an individuals race or in mixed teams.
Competitive teams must be from the same school.
REGISTRATION: From 2.45pm at the race base in the upper dog exercise area.
WARMING UP: The SINGLETRACKS XC loop may be used for warming up before 3.15pm. The Crocodile / Crocpot loop shown in blue on the course map is available for warming up. This can be accessed via the track above the normal entrance to the trees (see map). The Upper Dog Exercise area where below the race base can be used for warming up. There is to be no riding in any other areas of Halswell Quarry Park.
UNIFORM: Remember you are representing your school so you need to wear your school cycling tops and school (or plain) cycle shorts, or your school sports uniform.
AFTER YOUR RACE: There is no prize giving after the races so you are free to head off, or support your team mates. RETURN YOUR RACE NUMBER to the registration table.
ACCESS AND PARKING: Off Kennedys Bush Road, in the main carpark of Halswell Quarry Park. Race base information is here
TOILETS: There is a public toilet block in Findlay’s Picnic Area and down in the main quarry car park. Please access these via the track to the car park if you are on a bike. Keep them tidy and clean … we want to be allowed to come back for other races!
RUBBISH: This is a public reserve and it is expected that you take any rubbish away with you. Please leave it tidy so that it can be used for future events.
RESULTS: Results will be posted on Facebook and the Singletracks Website later in the evening or the following day.
