Did you leave bottles at the feed zone but still want them? My office is 103/58 Blazey St Richmond. Here 9 to 5:30 for pick up. But sometimes earlier or later if needed (most the time) Just PM me if you are coming later or earlier. At the end the week for sanitary reasons we put them into recycling. ... See MoreSee Less
In light of hearing one of our E-MTB riders was 'spat on' by another rider at an event that everybody else had such a good time at, I am re posting this post. E-MTB's are welcome. Spitters and haters and general skum of the earth people can stick to riding strava segments and stay the heck away from where we are all there to enjoy the challenge what ever that may be.Ok we have had a few inquires on E-Bikes so have decided on the following policy at the Shifty Fifty MTB Series
Yes you can PARTICIPATE but...
You CANOT start in the 10:00 fast group.
Instead you have to start anytime between 10:05 and 10:20.
You have to add the text (e-bike) to your last name on entry or tell us on the day and we will add it.
You CANOT get a podium place, as we are not creating a category for you, just allowing you to be part of this fun event
Your results will not count towards a series result.
I know this sounds all a bit negative but lets break it down. We want to see our events in terms of overall performance and results to remain as non e-bikes. However if you have an e-bike, lets face it you have chosen that for the sake of being able to get out there. So yes, please come. Participate and have fun with us all. Just respect those that don't have an electric motor as they challenge themselves to the course au natural ... See MoreSee Less
A little while ago wife and I had just finished a race in a regional Vic country town. Driving out I happenend to see a wallet on the road and stopped to pick it up. We rummaged through it to find contact details of any sort and stumbled across owners 'pacemaker' card. Wifey then had the flash of brilliance that they must of been in town to race, a quick search of the results and yep sure enough....racing in the eBike category! And we thought good on him for turning up and racing, it all made sense to us...I'm sharing this because people ride ebikes for many reasons....and I'd even go to far to say, stop any rider on Sat and they would no doubt have a life story to tell...something that you would not have understood just by watching them ride...
Looks like I’ll be riding my E-bike at Buxton as part of my broken leg recovery come back! I will chase down anyone who spits on me and report them to shame them for their terrible behaviour. Bring it on 👍🏼
Sure the person wasn't just blowing boogers out of there nose and happened to hit a rider, that happened to be an e-biker.
I'm in disbelief of this 🤔
Disgusting behaviour. Whoever the spitter was, be sure to piss right off and not come back to any event on the MTB calendar. You’re the one not welcome; ebikers, come on in.
Love that post shifty Fifty it really was a great event
I parked next to the 2 blokes that where riding the bikes, one was new to mtb, let's hope he returns. That person should never be allowed to race again.
That is horrible behaviour 😮 who does that to another human?
Fantastic event. Amazing course beautiful to ride. Great presence from the marshalls all over the course too. Thanks all!
Hahahaha... great job Neil Van Der Ploeg. I would have loved to see the sprint with Rohin Adams
Thanks for an amazing day. Was my first experience at a 50km and I loved every minute of it! (Well almost every minute 🤔). Great event, will be back 👍🏻
Awesome day all round well done with everything especially track sweep.
Thank you guys great course. So much better than Ballarat. Great day. Thanks to everyone involved with making it happen.
Was an awesome course and great days racing. Only downer was hearing from an Ebiker that he was spat on. That’s shocking behaviour and uncalled for. We are all out there to enjoy the trails no matter our fitness.
So much better than Ballarat🙏
