Sprint Into Spring Grand Finale Weekend in Bendigo

sprint-triple-6Don’t miss this fantastic weekend of sprint racing!  The events will showcase the new “SI-AIR” system, with fast swipe technology, which all competitors will use.


Saturday November 26 features the final Sprint Into Spring races on two new maps – one a complex campus, the other is definitely not your usual urban terrain (tip: full leg cover is recommended).  Entry and payment for both races on Saturday is on the day at Registration.

Race 6 – Bendigo South East College, Sharon Street, Flora Hill – start any time between 11 am – 12.15pm. Register for both races from 10.30am.  All competitors will be allocated an SI AIR rental stick for the weekend, which MUST be used in place of your own SI stick.

Race 7 – South Star, Brewery Road, Eaglehawk – start any time between 3 pm – 4.15 pm. Bring your rented SI AIR stick to use, or collect it at Registration if you didn’t compete in Race 6.

Entry fees: $12 adults, $7 juniors (u21) per race, includes SI rental. Note: for those competing in the Champs, a$2 discounted entry fee per race applies.

Reminder: if you use the wrong SI stick, or fail to register correctly at the touch screen, you will not be reinstated.

Sunday November 26 is the Grand Finale – the Victorian Sprint Champs, a rare (and only?) opportunity to race right in the heart of Bendigo.  The Camp Hill map has two school campuses, formal parks, a converted jail, a fernery, and a Chinese garden. Road closures will be in place.  This will be followed by presentations including Sprint Into Spring.  Later at 5pm, there’s a fun Park Street Challenge, a 45-minute score event starting from the Camp Hill Poppet Head (enter from View Street opp Rowan Street).


For Sunday, all entries are ONLY via Eventor.  You must select an age class to compete in.  Entries are open now, and close on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 22.  Start times will be pre-allocated.  Entry fees include SI AIR rental, and entry to the Park Street Challenge.  All competitors MUST use their allocated SI AIR stick in place of their own SI stick, and return it at the end of their last race for the weekend.
