The first round of the Merida Brass Monkeys Enduro on the 28th of November has changed venue to Porridgepot Hill, as used by the popular Gorrick Spring Series and ‘Are You Tough Enough?’ Enduros.
The organisers have created a new seven mile course that skirts round the more vicious climbs in the area but still manages to pack in plenty of singletrack with bombholes and whoops, indeed the focus has been on making the course as exciting as possible for riders and spectators alike.
You can have your pick of four, two or one hour’s racing, the first riders setting off at 10.30am and being staggered to allow the field to spread. As well as podium prizes and all important series points, there are plenty of other chance to win thanks to spot prizes from a host of sponsors.
Title sponsor Merida will be on hand with their full range of bikes to test, plus there will be food from Quaver Catering and plenty of trade stalls to peruse. There will be live timing from TimeLaps and the results will be posted within hours of the race finishing.
If you’re tempted then move quickly, as organisers say spaces are filling up fast and will close once they hit 500. There are no entries on the day, so head over to the website HERE for online entry or more information.
