Day 1 is Craigieburn, Day 2 is Mt Hutt, Day 3 is Coronet Peak, Day 4 is Alex, Day 5 is the Bike Park, Wynyard and Fernhill Loop. We are looking for some sweet local support for day and 3 and 5 in QT.
Coronet Peak: To help mark a stage or 2 each on Sunday March 8th ready for race day on Monday March 9th
Bike Park/Fernhill Loop: To help mark a stage or 2 each on Tuesday March 10th ready for race day on Wednesday March 11th
We have all the tape and arrows needed to do it. There is a box of beer in it for each stage that someone marks (6 stages on Coronet day and 3 stages on Bike Park day)! But it has to be up to great standard‚Ä¶so no drinking the beer before you head out and mark the stage
To help on the Bike Park day on Wednesday March 11th. Or at least come cheer on the riders!
8am-9am: Riders will be riding up Skyline Access Road
9am – 10am: Stage 1 (Bike Park) Marshals needed on major intersections of the bike park
9.30am – 10.45am: Stage 2 (Wynyard) Marshals needed on major parts of Wynyard
11am – 12.30pm: Stage 3 (Fernhill) Marshals needed on major parts of Bike Park for end of stage 3
We already have a handful of marshal that are with us for the full 5 days, but would be great to just have some extra locals for the last day!
Love ya work everyone and if interested in any of the above then email email@example.com and if not, all good – but encourage you to at least come up and cheer on the riders in the rowdy sections of the trail! Will keep you posted the day before on the Trans NZ Enduro FB page on where those ‚Äėrowdy‚Äô sections will be (eg course release)
Round 5 of the hugely popular QTDH race series is on this Saturday Feb 28. The actual times and details are still being sorted so keep an eye on the Queenstown DH Facebook page¬†. ¬†The last round on Rude Rock which was run as a ‘chainless’ DH meaning without a chain was won in 5min 23seconds! ¬†That’s pretty impressive!

The final round of the QMTBC/Vertigo Bikes Summer Series is fast approaching this coming Tuesday 3rd March. We are going to finish the series with a bang by giving away a 2015 Giant Reign 2 27.5 after the race courtesy of the good buggers at Searle Lane Bar. The more events you attended the bigger the chance you have of winning the bike! You HAVE to be a member of the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club to win the bike and we will be checking!
The final round is going to have a FANCY DRESS theme, with the catch being you are to only decorate your existing helmet! Nothing else! There will be a great prize for the best helmet decor on the night! So get thinking and creating!
The team series results will be decided at the final round too. It is all to play for with any of the top 5 teams up for the overall win, so make sure you have all you team members there to give it a go to add to your team result on the night!

We are hoping to have a best trick contest with $500 of cash prizes but we still need to find a sponsor for this so if you know anyone who might be willing to stump up some readies get them to contact the club!
