Shockcraft Manitou FS

Special Prize for Oldest Suspension

Last year at the Deans Bank 10 Hour we ran a special prize for "Most Suspension", which was won by Emily on a Zerode.

This year it's "Oldest Suspension". Break out your vintage and retro bikes and you could win a $250 Shockcraft voucher.

•   Age will be the average of fork/frame/shock years. This gives a 33% advantage to full suspension as hardtail shock counts as 0.
•   Entrants must register to have their bike inspected and dated at the Shockcraft tent.
•   Bike must be ridden for at least one lap of the race.
•   Shockcraft has the final say.

Shockcraft will have our 1995 Manitou FS on display. Average age for this one is 28. But we won't be lapping it.
