Announced this week is the new G2 Revolver, a three-date enduro series taking place in Nottingham, Brighton and Builth Wells.
However, keen to offer something unique in an increasingly competitive arena, the three events will call on different skills before the overall champion will be crowned. There’s a 12-hour race in Sherwood Pines, an 8-hour race (with party) around Stanmer Park and the series finishes with another 12-hour race around Fforest Fields.
Gary Fisher has stepped forward to support the events. Racing has always been a key component of the development of its bikes. Fisher first started racing aged just 12 and, according to our research, Fisher still holds the record time for riding the legendary Repack, at 4:22:14. But it is perhaps with the company’s first international race team that its profile was significantly raised, when Paola Pezzo won a string of Olympic gold medals. These days Gary Fisher himself is often spotted on the 24-hour race circuit.

Running alongside these events will be the Gary Fisher demo experience, giving you the chance to test the latest Fisher bikes, even if that means during the race. Gary Fisher will be looking after the neutral tech support area too. Exposure Lights, Garmin, Bontrager and Torq are supporting the series.
The races can be entered as solo, pairs or teams of four. More info and entry details are available at www.G2Revolver.com.
