If you weren’t at Round One of the Empire PMBA Enduro Series, you missed a course that saw a good mix of established trail centre trails, downhill course gnar and some new lines cut through the depths of the forest.
This Sunday sees the series move on to Grizedale Forest for Round Two so we thought now was a good time to give you a flavour of the grass roots, good natured and full on racing that’s on offer.
Here’s word from PMBA:
“No sign of this heatwave – but fingers crossed!
We have almost filled the extra 50 places we allocated for round 2 so its looking like a packed 350 strong field for Round 2 …
Talking of fields we have rented a field for car parking – normally parking is £7/day at Grizedale but you’ll be able to use the field for £4 – bring the right change please, we cant hold enough change!
Not a great response to the shout for Marshals – so looking like 3 stages – we are extending stage 3 though as everyone loves some extra length – trail pixies will be up on Tuesday building that!
Watch your e-mails for race info and final stage info – we are still working to give you the maximum!
Remember you’ll be able to wander round on Saturday, the stages wont be taped but you’ll have a map … and you can take a demo ride on the excellent Empire Cycles MX6 Evo too – try it, it might just surprise you how good this bike built in the North West actually is!
Big thanks to round sponsors Gill Cycles of Ulverston and Grizedale MTB!
Remember to smile at the camera’s -We have sorted Nick Moor Photography to take photo’s again, and every round, and all the practice photos will be available as a FREE medium resolution download from this page – our gift to you.
Smile at the Singletrack Mountain Bike Magazine camera’s too – we’ll have the Gisburn video edit out this week and they’ll be filming again at Grizedale and every round.”
And here’s Round One from Gisburn…
Fancy a go?
You can still enter this Sunday’s Grizedale Round Two, entry closes on Friday 16th.
