Hi All,

After discussions, the committee has decided to open registrations to another 15 riders (making a total of 90 riders) which means everyone on our reserves list will be receiving an email over the next few days to be offered a spot at BTB2013. These riders will be given 3 weeks to pay to secure their place.

We have decided to do this at the request of riders. We have been overwhelmed by the interest in BTB2013 and would like to accommodate as many riders as logistically possible. Please be aware that this is a trial to see if we can hold a bigger and better event. If it doesn't work in 2013, the next time (if there is one) we will return to the previous structure of a two day event with 50-70 riders. 

Another point of discussion has been safety. Safety of the riders is the upmost importance to us. To give riders notice and knowledge of how Tech will go, here are some points of how helmets with be tested:

  • Single strap pull test.
  • Double strap pull test.
  • Chin piece compression test, for "over-flexing/cracking sounds"
  • The helmet struck onto the heel of the open hand on each side of the helmet, gaging for over-flex/cracking sounds.
  • Good vision with visor, no scratches.
  • No deep scratches or compression cracks on any part of the helmet. A paint "graze" is allowed, however any scratch or damage to helmet deeper than a graze is not acceptable.
  • Helmets which appear highly "used", with a lot of stickers, will be thoroughly checked.

Leathers will be Teched the same as usual.

If you have any questions about tech please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

We look forward to another awesome weekend of riding.

Cheers 

BTB Team

In 2012 we raised money to go towards purchasing hospital equipment so the money we raised had a direct impact on patients.

We purchased a bath for Paediatric intensive care unit and a blanket warmer and bath for Oncology.
