A fun novelty event at the pine forest. A pairs race with a mystery partner, someone you potentially have never met before.
Your name will be assigned a number, it will then be ran through our mysterious partner generator. Kinda like Tinder for MTB riders (but not really).
You’ll then meet and greet your partner for the day and work out your strategy. Who will do first lap? Who will trash talk opposing teams? Whose shout is it for post race drinks and BBQ? All those sorts of important things.
The Poker part of the race is even simpler, after the end of each lap a card is given to the rider, after the end of the race (6 laps) each team discards one card for a 5-card poker hand. Show this hand to the organisers. Best hand wins!
Prize money is on offer for
- Best hand;
- Fastest team and;
- One team selected at random
The course is approximately 4.6 Km long and each rider will complete 3 laps each.
This event is aimed at maximum fun on an achievable course for all levels of riders.
Meeting point will be the corner of Howard springs road and Stow road.
