QQRide’s photo coverage on AFGC2011.

After five months of hard work, AFGC2011 has finally come to an end. There are areas that we could have done better and smoother, but learning’s got to start somewhere.

We feel tremendously grateful to the supports of participants, sponsors and spectators. I hope everyone had a great time and will be back racing again next year.

Here is a sneak peek of the New Era AFGC 2011 caps, top row are competition Gold, Silver and Bronze winner’s caps, as well as the grey event cap which will come with every purchase of the event package. These caps are EXTREMELY LIMITED so register NOW!!!

On 12 March, a few of us Flwrider went meeting with Jan Kole again for the venue spotting of AFGC2011. This time we think we got ourselves an ideal venue – The Fisherman’s Wharf in Shekou, Shezhen (深圳蛇口漁人碼頭).

There is a long straight road for Sprint Race.

Sander hopped on the roof top testing a stage.

We met Mr Cheung, owner of Fusion Martial Art Club, who used to be a body guard in Hong Kong back in the days. With his generous help and blessing, the event now has a support station.

No one’s gonna fool around with all these champion belts in sight. If you look closely, Mr Cheung’s Aikido (合氣道) publication is in the cabinet.

This could be our Plan B for a rain check.

This is where the after party is – Luna Square. Boss of Luna Bar & Restaurant will hold the place only for AFGC as a private party. There will be shit loads of beers and music happening.

We went the extra miles of scouting for hotel options. With the help from Luna Bar’s boss, we marched into rooms of two hotels just round the corner. We will negotiate with these hotels about discounts given to AFGC participants. We want to be sure that you could still creep your way back to the hotel room no matter how wasted you got.

We’re getting more and more prize sponsors for the AFGC everyday. You should register as soon as possible to secure a place. Also, you can submit a one-minute mobile phone video to invite people to join the AFGC and win souvenir and tickets for the event. In the meantime, get prepared for the big day.

Show us your creativity and sense of humor in submitting a video shot with your mobile phone with a message “Come join Asia Fixed Gear Championships 2011 in May”, email it to AFGC@flwrider.com, we’ll then upload it to Vimeo (and thus will show on Hong Kong Fixed Facebook page). The top 5 “most viewed” videos will win.

On 19th February, I tagged along Brian, Jan, Sander, Livia and Ben to spot the potential venues of Asia Fixed Gear Championship 2011. We took a good look at the Sport Stadium, City Hall and Expo Centre. Also spotted where after-party might take place. There’ll be whole lot of arrangement works for us to do in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

兔跳為一種由車手用自行車飛躍空中越過橫杆的比賽。
此為花式車手最先學習的一種技藝。
車手的熟習此技術後,有助於路上跳越地洞或路障。

繞圈賽一般於一個短途(如5公里內)賽場,以圈數或時間作比試。通常會於一小時內完成。亦由於此,車手作賽時車速很高。

3. 自行車馬球
– 3對3
– 淘汰制
– 分男子及女子組別
3位球員於一隊,不設換人,比賽時全員必需上陣。通常以先入5球或10分鐘內較多入球一隊勝。如球員腳觸地,必需即時踏車到中場以球杆觸碰一個特定位置,方可再作賽。球員需以球杆較窄部份射球並把球射過龍門線,方算入球。入球隊伍必需回到自己場區直至對方球手或球越過中場線方可再作賽。只可作以下三類觸碰:身體與身體、自行車與自行車、球杆與球杆。
