Sunday May 12th: Stuckylife Gentlemen's Race





The long-awaited return of our Gentlemen's Race.


An early-season unsanctioned bicycle race across South Vancouver Island’s best & burliest roads:

Equal parts rural alley cat, team time trial and randonnee, the event tasks teams of 3 riders with linking up multiple checkpoint controls over a 100km+ route.
$10.00/ rider entry fee
10am start
9:30am registration
The Switch Bridge (Recyclista’s Bike Collective, 5 Crease Ave, Victoria)
Sunday, May 12th 2013

Teams
Teams of 3. All riders in a team must hit every checkpoint together. Finish as a team. If all 3 team members complete the race on single speed/ fixed, they finish in a separate category. Pre-register at parker.bloom@gmail.com, or at 9:15 day-of.

Route
The checkpoints will remain unspecified until registration on the day of the event. 
Riders will be handed a manifest outlining the checkpoints’ locations, as well as the order they must be completed in.
Expect to ride over 100km. With hills.

Checkpoints
There will be manned checkpoints signing teams in as they pass through.
Feed stations will be provided, with opportunity to get (free) food and water.

Equipment
Road bikes are highly recommended. As is lots of water, and a stash of food. There will be some nutrition freely available at various checkpoints.


n.b.
Fixed riders & mixed teams are highly encouraged. There will be a separate category for teams with 1 or more fixed riders.

There will be a separate Ladies' team category. Though we're calling it a Gent's race, we'd love nothing more than a field of fast females.
