Cool MTB Challenge Rider Times
The hottest Cool Challenge in memory prompted a bumper turnout to tackle the medium and long routes. The rights of way were in fine condition just a little tacky under tree cover, and Collingbourne Woods provided a wee challenge to the unwary or those with minimal tread. The gentle descending singletrack from the top of the woods through the bombholes and beyond flowed superbly and was just reward. Our photographer Kevin was on site to capture your smiley faces, you can view and download his images here. The rider finish times are now published here, listed by pre-entries in alphabetical surname order, followed by on the day entries.
If you fancy a different kind of challenge our Gorrick Halloween XC race is on the 29 October on a short (roughly 3 mile) lapped course full of fun singletrack. Rather than a gentle meander through the countryside it's more of an intense effort lasting an hour or so. Ideal for those new to racing join the Fun 2 lap category. If your stamina is better paced over a longer effort the winter Brass Monkey Endurance Races in December and January feature 2, 3 and 4 hour categories. Expect a 5-6 mile lap over over mixed terrain. Pre-entry for all are open on TicketTailor. See you there.
