Gorrick's second XC race event on Sunday 4 March, sponsored by Saddle Skedaddle and supported by some of your favourite local bike shops, follows hot on the heels of their season opener last weekend.
Taking place at Area 51,(nearest postcode GU16 6HT) an exclusive venue to Gorrick, the team have invested considerable time and effort to create a perfectly formed race venue. Based around a hill, the whole area is well draining open mixed woodland, fern covered gullies and pine forest. There’s good parking on fire breaks and within the woods. Area 51 is particularly good for watching the racing too, as the grassy Arena area gives access to the Start area where the course flows away then returns close to the Arena several times.
There’s a wide choice of categories to choose from - full details and online entry are here but you can always just turn up and enter on the Sunday morning. These friendly, well organised events have full facilities including timing, catering, toilets, same day web results, event photographer, and there’s plenty of trophies to be won at the podium presentations.
Two lucky riders will also win a spot prize Saddle Skedaddle weekend MTB break in a prize draw in which all entered riders over 18 are automatically entered.
If you have entered our Gravity Trail Enduro on Sunday 22 April, or are thinking of doing so, this is also a great chance to check out this private venue beforehand.
