The Charge Bikes Set 2 Rise 12 hour enduro is back for its second year after a successful debut in 2008, and promises more fast and furious night-time racing.
“Last year’s courses seemingly never-ending wooded singletrack has been somehow (amazingly) improved upon for this year,” says Nick Larsen from Charge bikes. “That, combined with the relaxed atmosphere in the race village when you’re not riding, make this my favourite event, which is why we (Charge) have got behind it and become the title sponsor.”
TF Tuned’s Tim Flooks, who rode last year, added: “I’d come in from a lap just hoping that my team mate wasn’t ready for the handover so I could go out again and again, he always was… It’s one of the most enjoyable loops I rode all year.”
Along with a course that promises to entertain and thrill riders, is a massive £2,000 of products ready to be won. Charge Bikes will be offering frames, saddles and complete bikes, and SRAM, TF Tuned, Truvativ, Crank Bros. Nite Flux, Rock Shox, Mule Bar, Hotwheels, Muc-Off, Met and X-Lite will be throwing stuff into the mix too.
Entries are filling up quickly and with a limit of 500 riders, don’t hang around if you want to get a ride. Charge Set2Rise will take place on 23/24 May. Find our more and download entry forms at www.chargebikes.com/set2rise
