RAW starts this Friday! Woohoo!
The RAW forum is at From there you can find links to general info explanations of the races, the points system etc.
Other possibly useful info for newbies.
You need a race licence to enter
You get 4 different races each week in your chosen division.
Arrive by 6pm to get signed in and to have a chance to warm up
If you've never raced on Dunc Gray or equivalent, you must? race in the novice division for at least the first week.
Last year, the juniors on restricted gearing mostly raced separate from the adults in division 5 (they had to split the field because of numbers)
Finishes around 9.30pm
There is a personal points tally over the 13 weeks
There is a club points competition which DHBC has won for the last few years
There's usually a big DHBC contingent and a great atmosphere!
The draft program is

Bring it!

This week’s Program
• Round 1 warm up Scratch
• Round 2 no race (wheel-races run at best every second week pending sponsor)
• Round 3 Win’n’Out
• Round 4 Div 5 Scratch Race, Div 4-2 Madi-Lead Div 1 Madison

• Round 5 Combines + Time Blaster 8:45 for $50

Blue indicates Series Points scoring rounds

Explain these races
Win’N’ Out This is the opposite of a Miss’N’Out race. After a designated number of laps a whistle is blown for the first sprint. The winner of the first sprint is deemed the winner of the race and allowed to carefully withdraw from the race. Each proceeding lap sprint will produce the consecutive places from 2nd to 4th. Tip if you go for a sprint make sure you win it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28iqHThZ ... re=channel

Madilead- The pace in this race is set by a Madison team (see Madison). The bunch follows the Madison team for ??laps until, with 5 laps remaining the Madison leaders take off leaving the bunch to sought out the winner in scratch race style finish. The Idea of this race is to allow the lower grades to experience following a Madison change (which is a key skill in learning to ride a madison). The pace of this race can often change with the experienced leaders putting in a few hard attacks to stir up the bunch.

Madison- A high speed, two person continuous race relay. Think of tag team wrestling meets track cycling - while one partner is racing the other is resting at the top of the track. This race is named after Madison Square Garden in New York where the event was first held. Two man teams contest the event, which is typically an endurance event. Only one rider from each team is allowed in the race at a given time, meaning that teams must take it in turn each lap (or more) to have a rider in the race. Changeovers are quite dangerous, but impressive to watch when done well - one rider circles around waiting for his teammate, who joins hands and imparts his momentum to the slower rider. At RAW Track we usually ride this on a scratch race format reference http://www.cyclingnews.com

Note $50 for time blaster. (No sponsor)
• The time blaster prize and jack-pot in 2014 is only $50
• In the past it has always been $100 but this year we have no sponsor.
• If a sponsor wants to pop in $300 we can go back to $100 per Time Blaster
• The (insert name) Time Blaster

Non Madison
• Div 1 riders who are not riding the madison are invited to ride the Div 2 Madi-Lead
• Whilst results will be recorded, only the top 4 div 2 riders will receive points towards the overall series.

Ok... So over the last two weeks 2 people have said the background music isn't up to scratch. Hence if two people say it that means 20 people are thinking it.
Music has always been a topic for discussion and abuse. So lets put it out there.


Step 1:Create a themed play list to last at least 2 1/2 hours
Step 2: email me pcraft@vtown.com.au by the Tuesday prior to the coming Friday.
Step 3: create a codename for your music: "DHBC Hipsters" or "Generation Y" so on, so on........ Your code name must identify with you somehow. That is you can not hide behind this codename.
Step 4: Put it on a device and "BRING IT" we will play it.

Each week in the "This Week" Post I will announce who is the guest DJ.



Some basic rules
1. Minimal swearing (does not rule out isolated bad language)
2. No racist or hate based music (and the like)
3. Please be mindful of the broad spectrum of people RAW attracts
4. All other music is welcome unless it falls into the category of country or western, I hate that *censored*!

License will need to be sorted with Cycling NSW / Australia. You will at least need the receipt or license number as proof. If unsure give them a call.

68 -> 27 ->116?


To console myself, I've been working on a playlist. Since it has to be representative of me, I was going to start with "", but The Smiths are way too hipster for a suburban boy like me.



So I thought I'd go for a complete slam poetry theme. Do you think I should start with this?

I'll work with anyone to beat a Dulwich Hill rider, even another Dulwich Hill rider.

"If you go (with a break), you can either win or not win. If you don't go for it, you definitely won't win."

DHBC - powered by the next 3 generations of latte loving, inner-westie hipsters.

Apparently. :-)

But now you've analysed our secret to winning the Italian Pursuit ...

Teams Night tonight! That means your race points go towards your team and the team points decide the draw for the Italian comp at the end of the night. Your team's italian pursuit placing determines the bonus points added to your TWE total. Confusing? Ah well, it's a chance to get to know riders from other clubs.

C'mon you LACC mob! Don't give up now - there's still 4 weeks to go.

Get 25 extra people to turn up each night and you'll be in with a chance. Even if they don't actually win anything.

Well, it looks like it's LACC vs DHBC in the final ride off. Numbers are irrelevant at this point.

1 Dulwich Hill - Who Cares?
2 Lidcombe - Not quite as much.



See you on the final night.

See you on the boards on Friday night.

An interesting analysis. Please re-analyse to rank clubs by average weight and see where you are then.

(Actually, a couple of guys from SUVelo and Parra were talking to me about the club points and suggested that this sort of analysis should determine the club championships. It's obviously not going to work though, since very small clubs can skew the results in the same way that very big clubs skew the current point system.)
