Details

 

It’s all the aspects of most peoples rides. Riding to some great trails with your mates or meeting new friends to ride with & cruising & chatting & eating sour snakes on the uphills.

But this is still no slack pack easy going, how’ s the weather kinda ride because once your at the top it’s all business! Bets have been won & lost, friendships made & broken as you then begin 1 of 3 timed downhill orientated stages. And then you do it again & again, giving you 3 timed downhill stages. These are added together to give you a total time which determines you overall placing. But remember, winning’s winning & having fun is easier & more socially accepted.
Hot drinks & food will be provided in your entry fee.
