Winter race news at the UKBike Park
Ukbikepark / Torico performance Bicycles winter race £100 fastest time of the day
We have been getting a lot of requests from riders to promote a cheaper series and there has been a lot of talk on internet forums about running a non uplift race.So we have decided to put on a race on the 14th December. All the usual bikepark features will be there including mums cake and some special on the day only offers from Torico (Maxxis tyres and THE helmet deals ). We will be running a race later in the winter with BC ranking points but not this one.
We are offering £100 for the fastest time of the day and winners in each category will also get £20 cash (not vouchers, hard cash!) Other prodium prizes will be supplied by ukbikepark and torico.
Ukbikepark is fast being established as one of the best places to ride in the south. The track we are using will be one of the more technically challenging tracks. For those that know, it will most likely be devils dyke. With a winning time of about 1 min 30 expected 2 mins for your average senior. The course is the closest to the push up track and should enable plenty of sessioning and riding before your race runs. Parking is in the top field as usual – we will have toilets on site and plenty of warm food. There is NO camping this event (who wants to in all the mud & cold!!??)
Race entry is going to be £18 until the 1st decmeber, then £20 until the 7th December and £30 upto and on the day – but we would encourage you to book up early as it’s going to popular!! Race entry is limited to 200 riders and can be done via www.ukbikepark.com or pay by cheque made payable to Ukbikepark, send to Ukbikepark, 19 Chatsworth Road, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset, BH14 OQL – you will only be entered once the payment has cleared which could take up to 7 working days.
