Hennessey Cup Round 2 – Results

Well we have unpacked everything and starting drying things out. Lets hope it doesnt take too long, much like all the riders who have to wash kits, dry shoes and polish their bikes.

2019 Hennessey Cup Round 2 – Results

During the week, we will also update the current timescore for the Hennessey Cup. We will also have an ‘average’ time for each race which will allow riders to get included in the timescore even if they only race 2 of 3 rounds. How will that work?
Total Time is the method for the overall Hennessey Cup.
A rider who races all 3 races, will have their cumulative time added up.
Winners in each grade (A,B,C) will get time bonuses.
A rider who only races 2 rounds, will have their ‘average time standard deviation’ on results of the day combined for the round they missed.
We will try and put that together as an example before the next round.

Next Round is May 12 at this stage, but were looking at the calendar to avoid Mother’s Day if we can. If it stays as May 12, it will be the afternoon schedule as per today.

Hennessey Cup Round 1 – Results

Thanks to the massive crew who turned up to race this morning at Hennessey Hill for Round 1 of the 2019 Hennessey Cup.

Also thanks to those people we asked/begged/borrowed to help us with shuttles. With this being a formal race day, private shuttles are not permitted under MTBA Regulations – and make things a little complex under our Sunshine Coast Council Permit Conditions. There were a few people we didnt catch up with after presentations – so if you drove, please contact us and we will get some funds over to you for cleaning and fuel costs.

Our next race is on March 17th and will be the ‘afternoon’ schedule – it will be nice not being out of bed at 4am for once! For the Hennessey Cup – your times will be cumulative over the 3 race days, so make sure you enter online and get your spot sorted. Entry will be up soon.

2019 Hennessey Cup

Well it’s the DH Pre-Season, so what better way to get your introduction to DH racing or sharpen your race day skills than taking on our 2019 Hennessey Cup. The format is our much loved ‘Handicap’ where everyone enters the one category and then we grade each rider once race runs are completed into A,B,C Grades, with prizes for each grade.

In 2019, we will have 3 races in the Hennessey Cup, with your total time added up over all 3 races to find our Series Winner. There will also be ‘bonus seconds’ for winners in each handicap grade on each day. That means even if you aren’t the fastest rider on the day, you could still jump up the standings and be eligible for the overall.
1st Place – 5 seconds
2nd Place – 3 seconds
3rd Place – 1 second

Race dates are
Feb 17 – morning schedule

More info about Hennessey Hill DH Track.
Located on Beerburrum-Woodford Rd, the 1.2km track has around 120 vertical meters of elevation and graded as a Black Diamond Trail. There are two parallel courses which can be configured into different styles of race tracks. One is a little rockier, the other a little more flowy. The track is well suited to entry level DH riders and juniors. It also makes a great training venue for Enduro riders with nothing ‘too gnarly’. Not sure, go check it out anytime. The venue is open all year round and easily shuttled with a bitumen road running beside it.
