TORQ Breakout XC endurance - August Bank Holiday weekend

by Jane Lucas, 24 Jun 20.

We hope that you and your family are well and that lockdown hasn't been too tough.

Although we are still awaiting the Government's announcement about sporting events which is expected in early July, the Club has spent the past week making logistical enquiries and discussing whether it would be possible to run such a large scale event as TORQ in your Sleep to the high standard that we have in previous years. Sadly, we have decided that it is unlikely.

We've therefore decided to run a more bespoke XC endurance event - TORQ Breakout - at our Area 51, Highlands Farm venue instead, rigorously risk assessed for smaller numbers of riders with social distancing to the fore:

Saturday 29 August

  • From 9am 2 hours riding, max 50 riders with cats 16-39, Over 40 and Female
  • From Noon 4 hours riding, max 50 riders with cats 16-39, Over 40 and Female

Sunday 30 August

  • From 9am 8 hours riding max 50 riders with cats 16-39, Over 40 and Female (this category includes free camping at the lovely venue)
  • From 10am 6 hours riding max 50 riders with cats 16-39, Over 40 and Female

We've a great XC endurance course ready for you now recent video of it will be uploaded to our facebook page soon. All entrants to TORQ in your Sleep have already been contacted and given the choice of changing their entry to TORQ Breakout, so please check your inbox if this applies to you.

Sorry, but entry to TORQ Breakout will have to be strictly by pre-entry only which will open at 10am this coming Tuesday 23 June. All entrants will then receive a pre-event info email in August and, in the meantime, can check out any updates on our facebook page.

Many thanks for your support and take care,
Gorrick Team
