Are you a king or queen of the cog, cranking it both on the road and on the trails? We’d love for you to join us for our inaugural “King & Queen of the Cog 2014” event (formerly “Keepers of the Cog”), a low key, club-run event consisting of two races; one road and one mtb.


Thursday 6th March – road

Saturday 8th March – mtb (xc)

You must compete in both races to get a placing in the event, however you are more than welcome to just enter one of the races if you like. See bottom of page for how placings are determined.


Road – registration cut off 5:30pm, briefing 5:50pm, race starts from 6pm with exact time TBA as waves will be decided once numbers are confirmed. Please note that the club’s Thursday Night Time Trial will still go ahead on this night as per normal, as a separate event, from 6:30pm.

[UPDATED] Mtb – registration cut off 8:30am, briefing 8:45am, race start 9:00am


Road – Kumeu Community Hall, 35 Access Road, Kumeu

Mtb – Riverhead Forest, Barlow Rd entrance (forestry road), opposite 451 Ararimu Valley Rd, Riverhead



Under 20

20 – 39


Each category then split into male and female.


Road – 23km course, no aid stations

MTB – 24km course, 1 aid station at the halfway point with water and lollies…and possibly a friendly marshal out on the course dangling snake lollies…

Course maps will be posted approximately one week prior to the event.


Enter online here. Entries will remain open until 5pm the day prior to the applicable race date. While we will be taking on the day entries, we would appreciate you taking the time to register prior as we need to confirm realistic numbers prior for event and traffic management planning purposes.


$40 for both races ($30 DOC members), or split as follows if you are only keen to do one race:

Road – $10 ($5 DOC members)

Mtb – $30 ($25 DOC members)


To get a official placing in the “King & Queen of the Cog” event you need to compete in both the road and mtb race. Your two placings will be added together to give you an overall score; i.e. 3rd in the road race and 7th in the mtb race means you get a score of 10. The lower the score the higher your placing in the overall event. In the event that two people have the same score, each persons road and mtb time will be added together and the person with the shortest overall time will get the higher placing.

If you are entering just one of the races, your placing will still show for that particular race and you’ll earn primo bragging rights!

NZ MTB CrownFor all those entering the mtb race, the results sheet will be sent to the NZ MTB Crown organisers within a week after the event. The results sheet will include all competitors, regardless of whether you also raced in the road race or not.
