Let Us Stand.

In big stage races like the Tour de France or the Giro d'Italia they tend to have a smaller event the night before the race starts proper. It's usually a Time Trial (or Team Time Trial) and doesn't count towards the main race. This, my friends, is known as a Prologue.

The Dirty Deeds prologue will have some things in common with its fancier cousins. Results won't count towards the aggregate, and it won't be the same as a normal CX race. We're still locking in the locations, but we're hoping to hold it on a grassy (read: muddy) footy oval in the wild heart of Brunswick. But it will not be a Time Trial, mostly because Time Trials take ages to run and are boring to watch. No, you will be pitted against your mates in some tight, slippery, action packed racing. June 3rd, right? That's only two months away now. Start getting your bikes ready.

  1. darn it... what will i do with the Aero TT helmet now???

    i thought you might be doing something UBER-COOL by using the TT prologue to determine grid positions for the opening round...

    you will be THAT popular this year you know!

  2. grid positions will once again be determined by cake-based bribery, in the fine dirty deeds tradition.

  3. Definately going to need use the prologue for selection. It's gonna be massive this year. (everywhere I go people are talking cx)
    Kinda reminds me of the qualifying round for the helltrack in 'RAD' the motion picture.
    ... can you guys play us a John Farnham montage power ballad on the Dirty Deeds PA?
