The venue is a private woodland. You can’t ride here outside of event, It will seriously jeopardize future events. On that note Strava on private settings only!!! Before practice please sign on to collect your number board and timing chips Race Format The race is a ‘gravity enduro’ style race. The course is split into 6 separate timed descents, and the times for each of these descents will be added together to get the rider’s overall time. Between each descent stage is a transition stage, these are not timed.
We are using the Action Sport Timing’s contactless system. This requires that riders collect a timing dongle on Sunday morning BEFORE they start the race. The racers will ride over timing mats at the start and end of stage to record their time.
There will be a onsite providing food and a drinks vendor for Fri evening, Sat and Sun.
The are loads of trade stands in the event arena so have a good look around
Bring plenty of water with you as there is limited access to a tap onsite.
