Brownbacks Announce Lee Quarry Race Dates

by Chipps 1

We’ve just heard that the Brownbacks Race Series is confirmed for 2010 with the five-date Hope-sponsored XC series taking place at Singletrack’s local trail centre – Lee Quarry.

Here are the dates:
Sunday 30th May
Sunday 27th June
Sunday 25th July
Sunday 22nd August
Sunday 26th September

The organisers expect to sell out these friendly local races, so don’t delay in getting over to their website. There’s even a discount for entering the whole series.

Prices start at £8 per race, which isn’t at all bad, and the Brownbacks will be using some of the new trails at Lee Quarry, (and with two of the races being before the Singletrack Classic Weekender, it’ll give you a chance to dial in your lines before our event…)

The series isn’t for profit and all the 2009 surplus cash is going to Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team and to Derian House Children’s Hospice. For 2010, £45 gets you an entry to all 5 races, and any surplus goes to local good causes.

We hope to get over to Lee Quarry for a couple of these races this year – it’s a fine venue for bike racing…

  1. On the mornings of these races the trails will be closed to all but the race participants. So come along and race or volunteer to marshal if you are in the area. These races are worth coming along and having a go at there is a catagory for all levels. Even if you don’t feel like taking part come along and watch one of the great things about the site and the course is there are lots of really good places to watch the race from.

    Or if you just want to have a ride either come along in the afternoon or check out the new stuff at Cragg which will be ready for use by the 30th May (it’s not ready yet!)I’ll get some route maps sorted out by May and put up on various web sites etc.
