Tonight nothing happened, no one timed anything, no one raced down barking emu, car parts extesion, carparts and the roller coaster. Ed Crossling didn’t come first, Hadley didn’t come second and brother Ryan didn’t come third. If something had happened and some one timed it the results may have looked like this… but nothing happened and you never meet me… oh and I heard our more organised super d brethren in Nelson didn’t race cos’ of a little rain.

What round twos results would have looked like if the race had happened


Round 1 of the Wellington Underground Super D took place tonight, and the turnout was decidedly above ground. Jim took the increased numbers in his stride and by increased numbers were talking double the biggest round we’d ever had in the past. There were 53 men and six girls, which was awesome, because girls are awesome. The track was down the ECNZ road, onto Spoon Hill then the 491 Bypass, then Sean’s track onto the family loop and then the end of Beeline, which some people choose not to ride and saved themselves a minute or more, but as Jono pointed out, cheaters only cheat themselves. It’s not like we’re from Nelson, we don’t have rules. Casting our minds back, the first ever Underground Super D was won by a certain person who held onto a truck for extra speed, that’s how we roll.

Oh and there’s a new Super D rule, well we only have two. The first is that you can’t change the bike you rode tonight for the rest of the series. The second rule (which got added tonight) is that if you didn’t race tonight and your name is not on that list, you’re shit out of luck if you want to enter another round. It’s all full up, sorry…

Next Wednesday for round two meet at the top of Hawkins Hill by Barking Emu. Jim says the highest point is before the castle/dog/pink building, but no doubt you’ll see people. Bring your pedalling legs cause it’s gonna be a long one.

Anyway here’s the results after round 1.




The country’s longest running and most unorganised Super D series is back! Jim just fired the dates through and they are looking pretty rad, I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Barking Emu to Aro St race for the city round, any one want to second it? Leave questions and thoughts in the comments field…

The first round is Wednesday November 30, Wainuiomata 7 pm kickoff, meet ECNZ access road above the 4th pylon.

7 December, city somewhere.
14 December, Belmont.
21 December, Karori.

  1. Please all remember, this is not been sanctioned by the UCI, Rocky Roads, Bamba, freecaster, WTP, MTP, Alcoholics Anonymous, WCC, ACC, HCC, etc etc….. You turn up for a fast ride with a bunch of mates, that’s it, if you want to be oh so pro and serious about it, look else where not here. If there looks like there is too many people, do not be offended if told you are not being part of it. I’m the rules end of story. Jim.

  2. only small matter i envisage with that is 20+ hooligans rampaging down transient could pose a small threat to traffic travelling in the opposite direction. marshalls?

  3. Yea boi, Radar to Aro would be sweet – would actually be worth the effort of the tip track to get there. Few warning signs in advance of the day, and some dudes with a gentlemanly manner to warn walking punters should do the trick.

  4. I think I left a 90mm Thomsom stem on the roof of my car at Wainui tonight. If anyone found it, please flick me an email at sirliamalothotmail.com.

  5. Awesome first round. I especially enjoyed the match racing. Cheers Jim.
    …and don’t complain about the numbers. It just means people love what you do.

  6. Can’t believe I wasn’t last – sweet! There are obviously some dudes with even worse sense of directions than me. Time to get one over the hutt boys with the city round next week

  7. Those wagon wheels may/or may not have paid off for your last night Caleb, had you been there, or maybe somewhere else for that matter.
