    Limited to only 100 places!

    If you’ve never raced before don’t worry, there is a Enthusiast categorie πŸ˜‰

    some more details….

    That video looks great.

    I can’t make it on Wednesday as I’m working but are them trails open any time as some look a bit cheeky ?

    Looks like some good singletrack I’m missing out on.

    yeah it’s open all the time, I used to ride around there all the time when I was a kid. There’s some nice stuff, most of it isn’t that long though. just takes a bit of looking around.

    Well that was hard (fun). Felt like I was slowly progressing out the back for the entire of the race. Had forgotten just how hard a one hour race can be!

    River crossing was interesting…think it was getting deeper each lap as people pushed the rocks further and further away πŸ™‚

    Good race, well done to the organisers.

    Yup, really enjoyed it. Didnt realise you could get that much riding into a park in Bolton.

    Really liked the single track bits with roots on, normal riding for me
