Last year fun and games found a new name with creation of the League of Gentlemen Un-Race Series.
What started out as the drunken love child between a bottle of tequila mixed with an excessive amount of coffee and a poor use of foreign vocabulary, quickly turned into the second greatest race series in the world (and the Greatest race series in the lower Southern Lakes district).
With series founder and cross-eyed visionary Seb Kemp deciding to take his carnival on the road again, and set his sights on on megalomaniacal domination of the mates race empire, starting with Mexico, people were curious as to what would happen to their beloved race series. (We may have embellished their sentiment by adding the word beloved, or indeed their curiosity.) Well today the LoG are pleased to announce that Graeme Cooper, Queenstown's friendliest courier driver and owner of the world's ugliest dirt jumper, will be taking hold of the helm and steering the good ship HMS Bi-Weekly Shit Show across this year's calendar.
Already goody goody two shoes Graeme has the League's founder look like even more of a bumbling clown by actually announcing the dates and format for each race months ahead of them actually happening. What a teacher's pet. I bet he loved getting extra homework and volunteered for being chalk board supply monitor.
Graeme said this: "After Seb decided that he needed to go on a Peyote tour of Mexico to be able to hallucinate another twelve months of rambling bumbling Whistler Diaries columns for Dirt, it became obvious that this was a perfect opportunity to actually make something of the League of Gentlemen Series. The format is unchanged: self timed, cheaters cheat themselves, fun and beer. However I've added organisational skills, punctuality, logic and common sense. I would like to add that even though Seb Kemp is a pompous little ink blot, he is still a hypersonic converter of lesbians." Anyway, here are all the dates. For more info look for the League of Gentlemen WasteBook page or look out for Graeme in his shiny yellow and red courier van (he will be the one wearing colour matched yellow and red running shoes, which he uses to run to the dairy for an hourly pie and Coke intake).
