Tunnel Race 2

Post by Sam Gordon » Tue Jan 06, 2009 8:09 pm

Hello gents, is there any further information on this event, such as start time of race and accurate location? Would it be sensible to stay in Zurich, or is the tunnel in a town on the Zurich environs?

I'm under local pressure to do something different on this weekend, so have to be armed with details if I'm to get to Switzerland!

Cheers,


Sam

P.S. Thanks for the below, Foxy Doood

Let me post a preliminary schedule later this week as I don't have my computer with me right now.

It's supposed to start 9 AM I think and end by 7 or 8 PM. There might be a GS slalom session outside of town on Sunday or a slalom Jam somewhere else in the suburbs. I'll figure it all out as soon as I got my computer...gotta check with Maurus...

This is close to where the race will take place. There is a bus that runs, but we'll see if we can provide a shuttle bus. I think there will be an extra bus for the festivities.

This is the northern entrance of the tunnel where there should be shuttle busses provided by the festivity organization:

copy this link http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=d&saddr=Z% ... 9&t=h&z=13

This is the route to the entrance of another tunnel in which the race will take place:

Thanks Ramon.

Are there any more details as to the schedule, and is there a better area of Zurich in which to stay that might have good access to both the old part of town/ lake/ bars and of course, the race site?

Well, Zurich is not really big so...but if you stay north (called left lake shore but it's the right side when you're looking at the lake from Zurich) you should be good.

How soon would you need accommodation info? I could look up a couple of places to stay. Hotels, youth hostels whatever you want.

This is a rough, preliminary schedule of Saturday. Not sure yet, but we might run a (outlaw) GS on Sunday.

ATTENTION: The schedule might quite likely be brought forward by 30-60min. Means everything is a bit spread out. Only 2 practice runs each due to tough schedule (sorry, we're part of a bigger event and cannot afford delays. I would really like to give you more than two practise runs)

TO BE UPDATED!!!!

Accommodation

Post by Sam Gordon » Mon Jan 19, 2009 10:03 pm

Thanks for the offer to check accommodation, Ramon; it might be useful for others.

I've booked Paul Price, David O and myself into the Hotel California on the North East side. It's above PapaJoe's Bar.

We can check out any time we like.

Perhaps I'm a little bit early, but where do you sign up? Isn't the schedule a little bit optimistic? Will you have a rider limit? Will I get a cake? Its Marcus day on april 25:th according to the Swedish calender.

For you Claude there is always hole in my calendar! When and where? Is it decided yet?

It would be fun to go, I haven't been to the US since Morro Bay 2004 and I have never been to Canada. I was about to go to the worlds 2007 but we found a new house and it just wasn't possible to go.

So have you got Raymundo in your basement? Please tell him that I'm out of jam and that his grandmother needs to make some new :)

Don't worry about the sign up. It will be posted and you won't miss it. I can reserve a spot for you Macrus ;)

Yes, the schedule is optimistic. That's why it's called rough, preliminary schedule. But since our race will be part of a big festival area we'll totally have to stick to the schedule. No delays caused by racers will be tolerated. I calculated 20 pros/40 Amateurs and 10 women/juniors for this schedule...so yes, riders will be limited but we'll see according to the sign up. (Which we'll put up soon).

And on Marcus day in Switzerland we usually have our Swedish friends bring their own cakes...sorry...but I may ask my mum to bake you a cake.

Ramon,

Is it going to be 25/4 (Sat) or 26/4 (Sun) (or both?). If both, which competitions when (tightm hybrid, GS, etc)?. On your first post in this thread says 25/4 but on the "official" competition thread says 26/4.

It is Saturday, April 25th.

The official tunnel race will take place on April 25th and features Tight and Hybrid Slalom.

On April 26th, we might be able to run an Outlaw GS/HS session out of town if the weather is good. But don't take this for granted!

Where did you see the "official" thread? This is the official thread.

Sign up will be online in about 2-3 weeks on www.burningwheelstour.ch

We will have a limited number of racers. If the number of racers exeeds the maximum, we would like to use the world ranking to determine who gets the spot. (Sure, people who have booked their flights before TODAY Feb 2nd have higher priority because they didn't know)

But we'll see. Once the sign up is up I can tell you more.

Info for the Outlaw Race on Sunday

The outlaw GS will take place outside of town at about 30km from Zurich.


Driving directions:

Address of venue (B): Sihleggstrasse 21, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland‎

Address of parking (A): Bachtobelstrasse, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland

close up MAP

From Autobahn A3:

MAP & DIRECTIONS

The best option with your Westfest ticket would be to use your free train ride on Saturday night to Richterswil and lodge in the Youth Hostel there. Like this I would be able to pick you up for the race on Sunday.

Youth Hostel Richterswil


Zurich Public Transport Website

If this doesn't work out for you it would be nice if some of you that, despite our wonderful public transport, decide to have a rental car, would car pool. Also, some of the Zurich locals will be driving to the Outlaw in Wollerau. Means if you're nice to them on Saturday, they'll for sure give you a ride on Sunday ;)

More info will follow

I'm pleased to announce that we already reached half the number of possible registrations at this race. Currently, there are 41 registered racers.

Half of them has already paid their entry fee and their self-printable tickets will be on the way soon. (I have then on my computer)

Please note that I am still on my North America / Australia trip. So even if your payment is done and appears as ticked off on our homepage, it may take 5-7 days, depending on where I am and on if I have access to the Internet, until delivery.

Everyone who has paid will receive their ticket one week before the race the latest.

thanks for your understanding,

Registration Update!

Hi guys,

I just wanted to let you know that we're already past the 40 registered racers mark. 34 spots are left.

12 of 20 Pros have paid
16 of 27 Ams have paid
0 of 3 Women have paid


To see the list of racers click here


For those who haven't paid yet, just to remind you:

Your registration will only be valid after the entry fee has been provided. First come first served! Your confirmation email will double as your WestFest ticket. The entry fee will only be reimbursed if you can provide a doctor's certificate for that day.


You better be there! ;-)

I've booked Paul Price, David O and myself into the Hotel California on the North East side. It's above PapaJoe's Bar.

We can check out any time we like.

Bara att boka. Man betalar när man kommer dit. De vill ha kortuppgifter för att verifiera.
Skicka en request via reservations så får du pris. Vi kör 3 nätter à 190 (deras valuta) i dubbelrum. Priset är för rummet och inte per person.
Stället ligger dessutom mitt i smeten så bättre kan det inte bli.

Will there be a slalomshop in the area with silly sheap prizes? Will I be able to buy G.O.G-basplates? Do the sponsor´s hunt for fat bastards who they will pay huge amounts of money to? Will the T-shirt fit?

Am I a bit nervous?

Accommodation

Here are some links for those who are still looking for accommodation.

Unfortunately, the ice hockey world championships take place those days, so that's why so much is booked.

Just updated my previous post with all the info for the outlaw.

CONFIRMATION AND BIP HANDOUT OPENS ON SATURDAY AT 08:00 A.M.!!!

Changes may apply and will be confirmed to you by E-Mail one week before the event. Make sure you check your e-mail for the latest updates!

Info for the Outlaw Race on Sunday

The outlaw GS will take place outside of town at about 30km from Zurich.


Driving directions:

Address of venue (B): Sihleggstrasse 21, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland‎

Address of parking (A): Bachtobelstrasse, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland

close up MAP

From Autobahn A3:

MAP & DIRECTIONS



The best option with your Westfest ticket would be to use your free train ride on Saturday night to Richterswil and lodge in the Youth Hostel there. Like this I would be able to pick you up for the race on Sunday.

Youth Hostel Richterswil


Zurich Public Transport Website

If this doesn't work out for you it would be nice if some of you that, despite our wonderful public transport, decide to have a rental car, would car pool. Also, some of the Zurich locals will be driving to the Outlaw in Wollerau. Means if you're nice to them on Saturday, they'll for sure give you a ride on Sunday ;)

More info will follow

Rider Limit Changed

Post by Ramón Königshausen » Thu Apr 02, 2009 11:42 am

Due to schedule announcements by the Tunnel Fest, we'll have to cut back on participants. So far 64 riders are registered.

The limit will be set to 65. Whoever pays first gets a spot.

Sorry about this. Otherwise we would not be able to get done by the day.

Prize purse will be announced shortly. Next update by THU.

thanks,
