The days are getting longer, the trails are getting dry and fast, time is ticking on and the first Kona Bikefest of the 2009 season is only two months away. On the 6-7 June the Kona Bikefest is returning to one of the best mountain bike racing locations the UK has to offer – the sweet and swoopy single tracks of Ashton Court, Bristol.
Entry has been open for a few weeks now and they have been coming in thick and fast with the solo categories being once more extremely popular. Saturday is filling up very quickly and we can only recommend at this stage to get your entry in fast to avoid disappointment.
There’s only a few places remaining in the solo categories so if you’re keen to race in the 12-hour event on Saturday on your own then please don’t wait any longer and get your entry in now.
There’s still lots of places available for the 6-hour though, and the newly added 3-hour novice event on Sunday. Providing we have capacity left we will have day entry available.
The camp ground next to the event village is filling up very quickly and is almost 90% full. We have extra camping space available which is next to the new showers and bike washing facilities but a few hundred metres further away from the hand over area. If you want to get into the event village camp ground make sure that you enter as soon as possible.
We’ve had lots of requests from riders wanting to camp next to their friends. We are doing our very best to accommodate all your requests however we cannot guarantee that all requests will be possible due to the limited space.
The Kona Bristol Bikefest is not just famous for its superb riding and relaxed festival atmosphere but also for its great evening entertainment. We’ll have the bar open on Friday and Saturday night and have organised a DJ who will play some tunes in the main marquee.
