"Independence Day Cx" Round 3 - This Sunday at Nagti Tama

Photo credit: Russel G
Ok folks it is back to Nagti Tama Sunday for Round 3.  Our scouts have informed your correspondent that the park has held up well, and is ready for another dose of Cx.

This weeks theme is all things U.S. of A.  The beginnings of what is now Hüttcross was a single Independence Day race way back in 2009.  Get your Trump hat, Yankee doodle or star spangled banner together for this weeks race.  Dress-ups very much encouraged.

It may very well rain a bit this Sunday.  Then again we have been expecting a downpour for the last two rounds and it never showed up so....who knows?.
ENTER ONLINE to save yourself some dollars and alleviate the pressure on our Huttcross volunteer crew! Grab your race entry here:
EVERYONE MUST CHECK IN 30min before your race, at the very latest. Otherwise, you can still enter and race, but you will not appear in the results. No exceptions!

If you have a Hüttcross race number plate in your possession you need to bring that to round 3.

KIDS RACE FOR FREE so no need for them to register.

BRING CASH for coffee from Faultine and sammies etc from the Thunderbolts BMX Club fundraiser.

For this round only we will also have that most American of Italian foods - PIZZA on site from Tobilo's Pizza Bus.  Just like the Cosa Nostra its a family run operation.

New online entry 

We have not been hacked. We have just moved online entries to a new site to reduce overheads.

We are all mad keen on cyclocross, however when not organising races, sweet talking the HUCC, or changing out bottom brackets some of us at Hüttcross HQ can code up bit of web.  Big thanks to Lisa on this one.

Check in procedure... for all passengers

Hüttcross race is a little like a regional flight.  You must check in at least 30 minutes beforehand.  Then wait around (possibly with some refreshments from the lounge).  Then there is the jostling for the correct spot, the excitement of takeoff, the cruise or turbulence along the way then relief that you made the destination alive.


On-the-day check in 30min before your race at the rego tent, at the very latest.

Otherwise, you can still enter and race, but you will not appear in the results. No exceptions. The biggest challenge for our vollies at the timing tent is riders who haven't checked in on time, and who therefore don't have numbers in the timing system. If you are late, you will still be given a plate (to show that you are meant to be in the race), but you will have to turn your plate around so that it is blank (ie, the number is on the wrong side)

For the record

In case you have manged to get all the mud and river gravel off your bike and kit and forgotten what it was really like, a record of round 2 has been recorded for posterity (with images by Tom Mann) at:
