Brass Monkey Round 2 - The New Year Hangover results

by Paul Howard, 07 Jan 24. Results [  ]

First visited by a Brass Monkey race in 2009 the woodland surrounding Eelmore Plain revealed it's hidden secrets over a 5.6 mile track. A pleasing mix of flowing singletrack interspersed with some fireroad for rest and nutrition. The course team had spent many long days over December preparing trails, but the excessively wet weather in the run-up to the event brought the water table higher than we've ever seen it. Not surprisingly splashing through some large puddles riders encountered wet feet. P.s. I can highly recommend winter boots or overshoes to keep the feet dry'ish and warm. Fortunately the nature of the ground is not made up of sticky mud or clay, so all was rideable with a bit of effort. Thankyou to all the riders for supporting and our sponsors Muc-Off, Four4th Lights and Mountain Trax. We're looking forward to the final round on the 28th January at Minley Manor where Series Podium Presentations will be made. Note the points table after round 2 will be updated by next weekend. See you there.
