Pedal Prix – Vic Pk race 1

Hello

The first 6hr race at Victoria Park is on Sunday 16th June from 10am to 4pm and the riders will be racing in the vehicle they have practiced in the last couple of weeks.

Each team will be split into groups of 4 and each group will ride for a 2hr block, so each rider can expect to ride twice for about 15mins.

The riders and parents in the first group will need to be at the track from 8:30am at the latest and stay until at least 12:00pm.

The second group will need to be there from 11:00am until 2:00pm and the third group from 1:00pm until 4:30pm.

What I need to know from you is which 2hr block you would prefer.

Please let me know by the end of this week the order of your preference i.e. 1, 3, 2 or 3, 1, 2 etc and I’ll put the riders into groups based on those preferences as best I can. First in, first served.

Thanks

Vic Pk training session times – Sun 2nd June

Hello

Just a reminder that our next planned training session is next Sun at Vic Pk.

The long range weather forecast is looking much better than today was so, unless something changes, we should be good to go.

For simplicity, we’ll stick with the same time slots unless you tell me you really need to switch, in which case, I’ll do my best.

See you then.

Paul

We’ll be set up somewhere along the pit straight of the Adelaide 500 track, just look for the trailer.

Each rider will have a chance to ride for about 15 mins and each group of riders will be practicing as the pit crew for rider changes with the parent/guardian of the in-going rider supervising.

There will also be other teams practicing so this is a good opportunity for our newbies to experience riding with other vehicles around them before the first race.

See you then.

Pedal Prix – Loxton race

Hello

With only 10 days to our first race of the season here’s some important information for those who will be racing.

Loxton information 2019-1o7fvnd

Please note the time you need to be in our pit area on race day. I don’t know our specific pit number yet but they’re all in one area so we won’t be hard to find.

Lastly, there are a few people who haven’t yet paid the $40 fee for this race. Just in case you missed the invoice, Kylie will be sending those people a reminder email on Monday so please get it paid and let Kylie know straight away. If it’s not paid by Wed 1st May I can’t let the rider race.

If you want any other info on the race check out the website (http://www.ahpvss.com/race/loxton/) or feel free to contact me by email or phone.

Thanks

Pedal Prix practice – all riders

Hi

Just a reminder that the next PP practice session is this coming Sunday 14th April from 2-4pm at the school.

This session is for ALL riders but we will break into 2 groups as follows:

Loxton riders – will be on the black courts doing some laps in Flaggy Too and practicing rider changes.

Other riders – will be in the gym getting fitted in Flaggy Flash.

All riders should bring their own bikes if possible so they can do some riding whilst waiting for their turn.

See you there.

Paul

 

 

Pedal Prix first practice – Loxton riders only

Hello

Just a reminder that we have our first practice session from 2-4pm this Sunday at the school.

We’ll either be in the gym or on the blue courts (which aren’t blue anymore).

Note, this session is only for the year 6 and 7 riders who will be racing in Loxton.

The purpose of the session is to work out rider shoe sizes and seating position so they won’t get to ride too much.

See you there.

Pedal Prix information booklet and practice dates

Hello

Attached is the general information booklet handed out at the information session on Sunday.

Pedal Prix general info booklet 2019-2eothv7 Pedal Prix practice sessions 2019-29yx0vf

Please note the following key points:

  • If you’re planning on booking accommodation in either Loxton or Murray Bridge, I’d recommend you do it now because it will sell out fast.
  • We need marshals, so if you’re able to help, please find the instructions in the info booklet and email me when you’ve completed the process (contact details are in the info booklet).
  • I need someone to help me maintain the vehicles, especially on race days. Ideally this is someone who understands a bit about bicycles or wants to learn. If you’re interested, please email or call me. The time commitment is as big or small as you want it to be.
  • We need 2 Android phones to operate our timing system. They can be a few years old as long as the battery life is still reasonable. If you have one we can use, please get it to Kylie at school.
  • If you’re a Facebook user, please request access to the Flagstaff Hill Pedal Prix group so we can get updates and info to you quickly.

Also attached is a summary of the practice dates agreed by the organising committee.

I’ll send reminders in the weeks beforehand but please add them to whatever method you use to remember these types of things.

Thanks

Paul
