The Deus Bike Build off is on again.
Doing a lot with as little as possible, this event is becoming a great showcase of what enthusiasts the world over are capable of with a touch brief.
Rising Sun Workshop members will have bikes on display and our very own Heleana Genaus will be joining the elite line up of judges amongst Matt Machine, Jeremy Tagand and others.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN - An entry fee of 25$ is payable on the day which will get your place in the grid and an event T-Shirt.
THE RULES & JUDGING
1. Make the most with the least.
2. The entry must run (ie. kick over and idle) and must be rideable.
3. Display a level of creativity and ingenuity in design/function or construction.
A panel of 5 esteemed judges from their respective countries will assess the entries based on how well they have met the defined rules/criteria. On the day, stage one judging will narrow the entry field to 30 bikes that will go into the main round of judging. From here the field will be further shortened to just the top 10 bikes. Out the of this group the judges will award the First, Second and Third place regional winners on the day. A People’s Choice Award will also be given out, which will be chosen by the punters!
