Events

Everyone likes to plan their diary for the year – check out the big events we’d like to focus on as a club:

 

Oct

Sun
Haibike Welsh Gravity Enduro Rd 5 series final Cwmcarn @ Cwmcarn Forest Dr
Oct 28 all-day

“The 5th and final round of the Haibike Welsh Gravity Enduro Mash Up Series will come to a close at Cwmcarn on the 28th October 2018.

3 mixed terrain stages for you to race plus 1 “Uphill Flow” Stage for the E-Mtb’s”

The Mash Up format is a great way to get into Enduro, allowing you multiple runs until your happy with or worn out from your preformance.

  • Wouldn’t it be great to have another chance to go faster, get that corner right or hit that line you missed?
  • Punctures and mechanical’s are no longer an end to the race day, Ride with your friends and just have fun… The Mash Up Format allows it all”
  • The 1 day format involves 5 hours of live timing over 3 stages where you can do as many runs as you like in any order you like and then check your times in the pits! This creates an amazing rider atmosphere and presence in the pits that other Enduro formats do not have!
  • We also have an E-bike category which we will push forward even more in 2018 with more E-Bike specific stages.
  • Each round will have 3 stages plus an Ebike stage (where we can!) each one using existing trails albeit in a slightly modified state in some circumstances. The stages will be marked the day before the race so everything is ready to go for race day!
  • They will be taped and marked like all Gravity Enduro events, with professional timing, marshals and fully trained medics onsite throughout the race day.
  • The stages for each venue will be released in the week leading up to the event or kept secret until race day depending on venue and stages used.

An Evening of “Bikes and Beers” with Steve Peat @ Cheltenham Town Hall
Nov 23 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Steve Peat is coming to Cheltenham for the final venue of his Speakers from the Edge tour:

“Bikes & Beers”

“Mountain biking superstar Steve Peat tells the story of his illustrious racing career; the bikes, the world cups, the parties and the pursuit of the seemingly elusive World Championship title which some thought might never come!
In Bikes & Beers, Steve takes audiences along the journey that saw him rise from plumbing to podiums and become one of the most successful men’s downhill racers of all time, showing just how the man who wouldn’t back down earned his place as a legend in the sport of mountain biking!”
