Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle entries out now!

by 3

Time to mark that calendar! August 4th/5th 2012 will be time to get your 24 hour race on as Sleepless returns again for the, er, something like 12th year… And we’ll be there!

Yep, it’s six months away, but it’ll be here before you know it… Launched today are the entries for the 2012 Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle. Once again, we’re delighted to be title sponsors of ‘the friendliest 24hr of the year’. We’ll be there, ready to cheer you on, race with you, and share a ‘thank flip that’s over!’ celebratory beer at the end of the 24 hours.

The dust... the glow of sun-warmed skin... the cramp of that last hill... er...

All you need to do to enter is to nip over to this page: and get your entry in. There’s a handy online entry form if you’d like to do it by Paypal, or there’s a download-and-print pdf for the more analogue racers. Do it now and you’ll have six months to muster the fitness, rebuild the bike, buy the racing slicks (and the ‘just in case’ mud tyres) and get your sausage-sandwich making dialed.

Once again there’ll be a raft of technical support and trade stands. There’ll be refreshments from Clif Shot, super tyre deals from Kenda, jetwashing courtesy of Hope Sh1tshifter and Endura will be doing its traditional event jersey for pre-order. And, if they’re feeling brave, the traditional old shorts amnesty… Lucky them!


Dappled summer meadows will return again!

There's still time to do a full-on training plan too. Check past issues of Singletrack for some of our previous fitness columns for details...

Black! Black! Remember when it was still light at 10pm? No, we can't either...

We'll be see you there then!

    “Once again there’ll be a raft of technical support and trade stands” – but only one selling chainring bolts as I found out last year in a panic!!

    Pack spares!

    Seriously though – we’ll be there with bells on! Hope the longest jump competition is too!

    How many chainring bolt-selling stalls do you need? 🙂
    I hear that the Jump of Doom will return…

    Maybe do the jump of doom next time, didn’t feel confident enough for a jump of that calibre!
