Wed 18 November, 2015
For three special nights over the next three months, Australia’s first modular pump track will be set-up in an industrial warehouse at Essendon Fields, supported by food and beer vans, DJs and plenty more!
The Subaru Pump Track will be available for use by all age groups and type of riders for two open sessions:
- 5pm – 6:30pm
- 7:45 – 8:45pm
- 10pm until close
There’s no need to register in advance to use the track but helmets are mandatory.
‘Store Wars’ retailer competition
6:30 – 7:45pm – the pump track will feature an awesome competition. “Store Wars” is a competition between Victoria’s favourite bike retailers. Riders will compete in a head to head knockout, with two competitors per heat.
Competitors must ride a mountain bike (either a 26”, 27.5”or 29”), and riders will be disqualified if they ride off the track.
The “Store Wars” competition is open to Victorian bike retailers, with the winner crowned either the King or Queen of Pump.
Competition spots are limited to Victorian bike retailers, so pull out the pom-poms and come to cheer on your favourite store!
8:45 – 10pm – open to any style bike rider (BMX, MTB, road, whatever!) any gender or age, come and battle it out and you could be the King or Queen of Pump. Riders will compete in a head to head knockout, with two competitors per heat. The first rider to complete two laps advances through to the next round, and the spectacular finale will feature a four lap race. Aside from a fearsome title and ongoing bragging rights, there will be a great prize pool up for grabs including a $1,000 cash prize for the winner!
To enter the 18 November comp, simply register online here. No entry fees required. Competition spots are limited, so get in early and register as it will be a case of first in, best dressed.
