News just in of another Enduro, this time down in the deep south. South coast that is…
Us band of merry volunteer shovel jockeys at QECP, known as the QECP Collective, will be hosting our own gravity enduro race on 21st July 2013! It is sure to be a banger with prizes including a holiday for two with Pure Mountains in Spain’s Sierra Nevada(http://www.puremountains.com/ ), a pair of Marzocchi forks, Dainese pads, Exempt Clothing T shirts and much more up for grabs. Chris Smith has already signed up for the race which will be held on brand new, purpose built singletrack.
Put the date in your diary now and keep an eye out for when registration will open, as it is sure to be a popular event. In the mean time the Collective will be beavering away in secret, making the best race course possible while trying not to be washed away in the driving rain or being turned into a brass monkey.
All profits from the race will go towards improving and expanding the trail network at QECP. As with everything done so far, it is done for free, because of the love and passion we have for mountain biking and giving people fun trails to ride. So if you see one of us shovel jockeys around (most commonly found at our registered trading office of the Denmead Queen pub in Waterlooville) then feel free to buy as a beer and have a chat.
A big thank you to our sponsors for the race, Pure Mountains, Windwave (Marzocchi and Dainese) and as always the amazing guys at Exempt Clothing. Your generosity continues to show why mountain biking has the best community in the world.
Viva la trail revolution!
QECP Is located 1 mile south of Petersfield, Hampshire. It takes about 1 hour from south London.
If you can make the race it would be good, the money will be going back in to the local MTB trails. Keep in touch with updates on:
