The popular Gorrick 100km enduro is back and this year they’re going to be sponsored by Exposure Lights. Taking place on the 1st May in the web-like network of trails at Swinley Forest, near Bracknell, it signals the traditional end of the Gorrick Spring Series.
Riders will be able to pick the option of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 laps of the 14km circuit to complete in their own time, so you can go as hard or as easy as you like, and the organisers say that the course will suit beginners but will also test the most ardent endurance rider.
USE Events manager John Cookson commented on the new partnership:
“The Gorrick events are a testament to their turn outs. All of us at Exposure Lights are reveling the chance to be a part of the fun and competition that is seen out on track. The Gorrick Exposure 100 is a real challenge which ever level you take on and this is what we, as all mountain bikers thrive on”.
Exposure Lights will be providing an extensive prize list along with the chance to check out all their shiny products and sample their friendly approach to the sport – you may find yourself racing a couple of their keen riders along the way.
Head Gorrick MBC honcho Jon Lucas is rather excited the Gorrick crew are that Exposure Lights are on board for the event:
“We very much welcome onboard Exposure as the title sponsors of our popular enduro. We were delighted that they approached us after enjoying themselves so much at last year’s event, expressing an interest to get involved with the event for 2011 as soon as they recovered from competing!
We know with their input that the event will be even more enjoyable and we look forward to working with them to deliver another excellent event”
If even the 2 laps sound daunting, don’t worry as the Gorrick folk have included a single lap category, open to riders over the age of 12, so you can dip your toe in the endurance waters without it being nibbled off by the fish of fatigue.
