The first round of the three date Merida Brass Monkeys winter enduro series on Sunday 28 November will now be staged at Porridge Pot Hill at Pirbright, Surrey.
Organisers are keen to stress that this last minute change of venue won’t dampen spirits. They’ll have full use of the venue area including the canal side whoops and drops, collective bomb holes and single track there and a massive arena area.
This extra area will mean riders better spreading out before they arrive at the delightful flowing single track and twisty drops and climbs which richly reward the effort of any climb with a scintillating descent. The course will be seven miles in length.
Categories available will include 4, 2 and 1 hour age related time classes and, as well as series points there will be podium presentations on the day plus some great spot prizes. You can also expect an experienced team, computerised chip race timing, full results with position and time, commentary, photographer, Merida stand, trade stands, Quaver Catering, toilets, water, bike washing, paramedic medical cover and ambulance, radio linked mobile and static marshals and plenty of good parking. There are plenty of vantage points with great views for safe spectating too.
Due to the popularity of the event there will be no entry on the day, so to avoid disappointment head to the website www.meridabrassmonkeys.com and enter online.
