09.07.2009   we need your support

as you might notice we lost support from people who told us otherwise earlier on. this is not nice. it seems that these people intended to pick the candies first and bargain afterwards at inbelievable ridiculous levels. luckily we got the support by "hart and head" our event needs from others..
because we need to pay some bills already we need your registration fee. please send us your money as fast as you can! also if you don't pay before july 22, we can't guarantee your special starting package and your racenumber! we will randomly distribute racenumbers for people who didn't pay before this date.

28.06.2009   Limited editions

a few days ago we received the clothes from boNhoM. today we realize some shortage already. there are only few hoodies left. we are still taking orders and will organize the stuff you ask for in july.
there are another two important things to notion: firstly we are working on a superbe starter package. but we have to limit these packages to a certain amount. the first 150 who pay their starting fee will receive this package. and because we have to print and prepare the starting number you can only choose your number if you register and pay before july the 20.
the second thing is the hospitality packages: we booked the civil shelter and we will organize food to fill your stomach. but we can't give this away for free. we will work out nice and affordable hospitality packages for you. check backs soon to get more information...

26.06.2009   events update

second we will only have a very short sprint. therefore, we have to exclude brakeless bikes for the sprints. but you can compete in the individual uphill time-trial without brakes...

07.06.2009   two months left till TriCMC...

after the numerous exploits and many german and even more swiss wins at the ecmc in berlin the TriCMC organizers look forward seeing most of these messenger again in basel. as we got plenty of french entries already we expect head on head racing, fierce partying and paneuropean messenger culture at the famous rheinknie in basel.
we were specially happy to see the geneva guys win the polo tournament because they will host the official TriCMC pre-event. from this years polo champions there will even be a group-ride to the last years champions from basel (approx 250km distance). and maybe there will be a special polo pre-qualifier round in geneva... we will see, have a talk with the geneva crew and inform you as soon as we know more about the pre-event.
we had also good talks with city representatives about the polo tournament and sprints midtown and we are planning to have a special field boards. but we can't make an official uphillsprint on the other hand. we are in search for alternatives for all you hillclimbers out there - maybe an individual uphill timetrial...?
so there will be minor changes and updates to the shedule in the near future. regularly check back or get automatic updates with our iCal/Firefox calendar...
see you soon in basel

25.02.2009   programm update

yesterday the triCMC organizer had a talk about the shedule. we decided to split the polo tournament into a qualification round on friday and the final rounds on saturday. we simply had to avoid unforseen delay on the tight packed saturday. we will announce details about the polo tournament soon but there will be a limited number of plays on saturday, maybe finals, semifinals and even quarter finals. so if you really want to play in the finals you should consider coming as early as friday and get through the qualification rounds.

20.02.2009   mainrace course news

yesterday we had a nice meeting with the people from where we will race on sunday - the dreispitz areal southeast of the city center of basel.
well the news are good news for you because you will compete in a race as realistic as it could be. railway ramps and tracks, inside building stairs and even a parking deck are all included! so you probably will need your brain and a good riding technique too - muscles only will probably be eye-catching but nothing more... We keep you informed as soon as we have details or even the map of the mainrace.

12.02.2009   payment updates

as you may already have noticed there is still no online-sign of your payment up to date. we got the information about several registered transactions on our accounts but somehow the exact details did not reach and merge into the online table. we are working on this and will inform you as soon as the payment information is updated...

10.02.2009   TriCMC Network

Hurray, we got features from all over the world but specially from the french connection. We got reviews and notions on Panamessagers, jzerozero1, somewhere on pignonfixe.com, on urbancycle and on dutch haute-courierrrr and irish dublinmessengers.
Thank you all! Your continued visits not only fuel our thrive-hungry organisation spirits but probably also will impress upcoming sponsors, media and partners! See you soon.
Sorry for not translating all news to french - i am sure the french compagnions prefer to read our news in modest english writing instead of our undergraduate french babbling. Come to Basel and teach us to improve our multilangual skills...

09.02.2009   ecmc 09 registration now open
