Counting down the days to Gorrick TORQ in your Sleep #10 - Sun 27 August

by Jane Lucas, 15 Aug 17.

It's not long now until TORQ in your Sleep #10, our August Bank Holiday Weekend XC Endurance event, headline sponsored by TORQ Fitness and based at Minley, Hants GU17 9UF.

There's 12 hours riding between Noon and Midnight for Solos, Pairs and Teams or riding for 6 hours for Solos and Pairs from 3pm to 9pm. There's also Fat Bike & Single Speed categories available too. Expect everyone's favourite sections, plus a few surprises in our established 8 mile figure of 8 course, made up of a blend of flowing single track and more open sections in a mix of heath land, beech woods, pine forest and open parkland that includes the Bridge to Nowhere.

There's free camping located at the venue which is open from 3pm on Saturday 26th until Noon on Monday 28th. This friendly event has comprehensive facilities including a riders' HQ, trade stands to browse in the Arena, hot showers and plenty of toilets. Quaver catering will be open from early until late.

Because we have such amazing sponsors and partners who you can check out here, not only are there great trophies and prizes for the category winners on the podium, but also loads of spot prizes to be won at the main prize giving.

Entry is strictly by online pre-entry only at and will close on Friday 18 August. Pairs and Teams can be entered with just a name, as they don't need to be finally confirmed until the day of the event when you sign on and collect your Registration Packs.

Once entry is closed riders will receive a Final Instructions email - this will need to be forwarded to your other team mates if you entered on their behalf.
