If you’re fed up with shoddy amateur races and want to enter a professional highly polished downhill race then you need “Das Uber-D”.
Dirt columist Seb Kemp is the brains behind Uber-D, here’s his press release:
Seb Kemp decided to hold a race in Queenstown, New Zealandshire…next week Wed 3rd Dec 08. Some local bikers have been whinging that their needs as racers are not being met and that we need more biking events in Queenstown other than jams. I am personally fed up of ‘races’ but i like going fast so this is what he came up with. The emphasis is all on “beating time” rather than other riders. More of a laid back piss take informal mess around malarkey with an element of clock watching attached. You can be rest assured this is unlike any race you may ever enter.
Riders will be self timed but thats OK cause its gentlemens racing so the only rule is that there are no rules. if a rider chooses to cheat then they lose.
The format will be UBER-D, which is one better than a Super D as everyone already knows. there is no racing ‘between the tape’ instead the course is kept secret until the start line which saves riders tiring themselves out trying to pre ride the course or braiding in Johnny Straightlines.
For more info go to Seb Kemps throughly professional events page/recycling dump web blog thingy page at heyyouhatethis and you can see the full size flyer which he painstakingly spent hours slaving over in some computer whiz kid programme called BiroMaster.
