Sorry for the short notice, but we have just a few places left for competitors on our competition on the 19th october on the Velodrome in Bordeaux. If you want to inform your readers of this event you can use following pix and information. For those who liked the Koln racetrack at the BEND competion : this one is even faster, steeper and smoother. Don't expect anything big of the organisation : France is a small country for bentriders and this wil be a very intimate event : no big competition and cool attitude is required. But for those who like to hear Van Halen's Jump loud while cycling on the most radical track in Europe, get your ass over here. Last year we got this event 3 times on Eurosport and once on national television. Here is the information you can use for your readers. We thank you in advance.

Bent Over Bordeaux
Vélodrome de Bordeaux
19 octobre 2002
+ Bike tour 20 octobre 2002

For the 3rd time the world famous racetrack of the Vélodrome of Bordeaux is open for the cycles it is best suited for...

Program :

Saturday 19 october : 13.00 - 19.00 h
Warm up
Kilometer standing start
Devil's Race
Pursuit Race
1 Hour Open (maybe followed by a 1 Hour individual time trial)

This event is open to all competitors of any level. However, the racetrack of Bordeaux is a little radical, so experience on cycletracks is mandatory.Timekeeping will be held handclocked by appointed french HPV members.

Conditions for all participators :

-Regular Low racer recumbent cycle of good fabrication
-Helmet, cycling body and footwear
-Good tires in excellent condition for superclass wooden track
-Front protection or single bracket

Not allowed : tricycles, cycles with understeer, and full fairings. The slope of the velodrome of Bordeaux is much too steep and the track too short (250 meters) for these types of bikes.

This is not a commercial event : however the velodrome is a very expensive location, so you will be asked
a small participation to ride here.

Entry fee :
Competitors : 30 euro
Visitors vélodrome : 10 euro

How to get here

Plenty of cheap hotels (Formule 1 etc) are just around the block. For those who want to extend their visit touristically :
