By now I assume you have your costume sizing and fitting sorted.

Registration is at the Sprig and Fern Hardy St (280 Hardy St) Friday night from 5 to 8pm.  While you are at registration, why not start sampling the fine beer.  There are about 15 to try out and it will give you a good idea of what you’re in for on Saturday.  If you can’t make Friday night registration, you can pick up your race pack from 8:30am at the event village at Codgers MTB Park on Brook St.

Less than one week to D-day.  While entries have officially closed, we are still taking a few more entries to cater for the disorganised people amongst us.  Please have your late entries in by Wednesday night, as we have to give final numbers to Devilles for dinner and have all the recycled race numbers ready.

We are going for a 3 lap race format with an expected winning time two hours....... give or take an hour.  It really depends how fast you all decide to ride. But you should probably take food.  

We will also have a lap out rule so no one has to suffer unduly and we can all spend more time relieving the Sprig and Fern of beers. If you get lapped just complete that lap and pull out, you will still get a finish time and placing.

Only four weeks until the 2012 IBIS Single Speed Champs of Awesomeness and the event is shaping up to be a whole lot of fun.

We have a couple of great options for the race track.  We just can’t decide how mean we should be.  I guess it will depend on how we are feeling on the day of marking.  No matter what we decide on, we strongly suggest a low gear, i.e., 32 x 19 (not as steep as Queenstown SS nationals, but steeper than Rotorua and Napier SS nationals).

We have been lucky enough to book Deville’s for the after party, these guys specialise in good sounds, great food and of course spring and fern beers. Single speeders can start their occupation from 6.00 with prize giving at 6:30.  Beer (one free with entry) available on arrival and food from 7:00, which is also included in your entry.  For supporters and partners of competitors that want to have a meal at Deville, they can purchase a meal ticket for $15 (purchasing instructions on website).

Enter now before it is too late, as the event is limited to 150 competitors and entries close on April 13th.  We are planning to bring the feral randomness back to single speeding so sign up and try your luck.

Get your gears off

The spot prize of awesomeness

IBIS have kindly donated an IBIS Tranny as the major spot prize.  These carbon fibre hard tails have been ridden to 3 single speed titles in NZ (Tim Wilding, Anja MacDonald and Brenda Clapp).  They are light, sexy as all hell and could be yours. All you have to do is enter the 2012 IBIS single speed champs of awesomeness.
