Jakarta – 1st Fixed Gear Underground Race on April 30th, 2011.


Borrowed photos from 大大兒. Photo set can be seen here.

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.

The road race will have a start and finish on Geels Hill in the municipality of Rudersdal. Some good climbs in the hills to the north of the city and a beautiful scenic area. According to the head of the Danish Cyclists Union, former racing cyclist Jesper Worre;

“We have created an interesting and demanding circuit going up Geels Hill. With no less than 20 laps of 14 km, we are convinced that it will be a very tuff and varied World Championship in Denmark 2011”.
