8th & 9th August 2009, Catton Park, Walton-On-Trent
Event organisers Pro Velo Support & Endura have been working hard over the winter months responding to rider feedback to keep on developing & improving this already amazing weekend of mountain bike endeavour & entertainment.
ProVelo peeps proclaim: “The most substantial change we have made is out on course. Last year’s relentless rain gave both the riders & the ground beneath the wheel a real hammering, so we have laid over 60 tonnes of surfacing in a number of trouble spots in order to make the track a lot more sustainable & weather resistant. The course winds its way through 8 miles of the undulating grounds of Catton Park that has proven over the years to be a suitably challenging, yet enjoyable test for riders of all abilities.”
The Endura Glove In – Endura’s Sleepless in the Saddle Glove Amnesty
This year at Sleepless in the Saddle, Endura are offering riders the chance to bin their rotten and festering gloves (regardless of brand) and pick up a pair of brand spanking new Singletrack Gloves all for the measly price of £12.50. That’s right, a half price pair of Singletrack gloves in exchange for your manky old minging ones. Endura will sensitively dispose of your snot-encrusted mitts and leave you looking good on your bike, with a firm grip on the handlebars, not to mention a happy nose!
This offer will be on a first come first served basis but we will do our best to facilitate every rider* male and female.
You can come and see Endura in the main arena from Friday 7th August onwards.
Also in the arena you can expect more of the excellent facilities & services that have become synonymous with Endura SITS. There’ll be the event’s biggest ever selection of trade stands, shops & displays including Endura’s full range on show, experienced event caterers, demo rides, free light charging station thanks to Exposure Lights & free bike wash laid on courtesy of Muc-Off. On top of that to make for a really special weekend all competitors can expect ample free camping next to the course, hot showers, flushing toilets & the invaluable free pre & post ride massage.
Entries are now open for Endura Sleepless in the Saddle 2009, with categories for Expert Men & Women (4 riders), Enthusiast Men & Women (4 riders), Mixed (5 riders), Pairs (2 rdiers) & Soloists. Things are shaping up for a fantastic weekend’s riding, so come & be part of Endura Sleepless in the Saddle 2009.
