Couple pics post-race.
We arrived in Auckland at 4am this morning. Had a few minutes sleep and woke up around 8 am. We were feeling pretty shit to be honest!
Todays official events started with the Meet & greet and then a quick, shortened Tank farm ride. We then headed to Parnell Rise for some good quality sprint races up the hill. Looked like everyone had some fun. Ivan from Steadyrollin/Red Bull hooked up some Red Bulls, thanks Ivan!
Frank, James and Ivy organised the races. Lester Perry from QuietChaos/Pavement Panthers came out on top for this event, winning easily, and in style. Crusing over the line, uphill with no hands on bars. Her picked himself up a G-Shock watch, $200 Qubic voucher and a DVS prize pack. Nice.
Following the racing, we headed back to Qubic for some drinks, socialising and some Sausages.
Afterwards we went out for another ride, ending up bombing dominion road a couple of times. We had 1 casualty on the way down. Riding on we then had another crash when Armand wiped out and broke his helmet in a few places. Lucky he was wearing one otherwise he’d be in hospital right now. We decided to cool things off and headed to Sals doe some Pizza slices. Best pizza I’ve ever tasted, for sure.
All in all, a good first day. Some good results from the DameTruth crew. Tomorrow is the Criterium, 10km around UniTec. Then the Main event – Skull Bike Club/T-Whites bikes Booze cruise at 6pm. It’s gonna be amazing. If you can get there make sure you do.
Photos to come.
