Race Face Circus of Dirt round two is fast approaching and yet again, they have the keys to Newnham Park, Devon.
So what can you expect on May 1? After a host of bank holidays you will have consumed your body weight in alcohol and ice cream, so the guys at Shred Events think you need a big lap – 9km to be precise, so pack sandwiches.
The course is unlikely to resemble the nationals track as, by the time the British Mountain Bike Series comes to Newnham, UCI regulations will stipulate a 500m lap.
The team at Shred Events have spent considerable time dressed as deer, stalking through the park to find every useful and fun path before attacking them with rakes and bow saws to build a course to keep the locals guessing right to the finish line.
The enduro kicks off at 10.00am, and due to the length of the lap, there will also be a half-lap option. Cogs Bikes will be on hand with tech support and spot prizes.
The traditional XC springs into action at 1.00pm for all categories. Registration closes at 12.30pm..
Online entry closes at midnight on Wednesday 27 April (today). Full details at www.shredevents.com
