We are pleased to announce that after a number of delays weather wise, that it is nearly done. The builder has indicated that he should be finished within two weeks.
As of today, there is still one more pour of concrete to be done - this completes the starting gate pit and an additional 2 meters at the bottom or the ramp. This will allow us to hopefully install and position the start gate this weekend.
The additional two meters is being added so that our new ramp complies with UCI regulations. Due to the angle of new ramp, it was decided that the first straight had to be changed.
The first jump/double has been moved closer to the ramp and has been made a 7 meter double. The middle of the jump has been shaped so that the younger riders will be able to jump into it and ride down the other side easily. The last jump has been re-shaped into a step up/double. Again, this has been done with all classes of riders in mind.
We are pleased to finally announce that club days will be resuming on the 17th of October with registration at 5:30 and racing starting at 6pm. As always we will have the BBQ going and drinks for sale.
In the mean time, you may want to head along to another clubs club day:
Rotorua holds their club days on Wednesday's with registration from 5:15pm and racing 6pm
Cambridge club days are on Sunday's with registration at 1pm and racing 2pm
Unfortunately due to the delays in building of the Ramp, we are not able to Hold the Central Regions Winter Series.
We are looking at having a massive open day for the new ramp however. Details will follow.
