The 2009 Singletrack Classic Weekender, July 4-5
Get your diaries and your pencils out ladies and gentlemenÃ–
On the weekend of July 4th-5th there will be a brand-new old-style event taking place – the Singletrack Classic Weekender!
The event will include three mandatory riding disciplines – XC, Downhill and Ã¬ClassicÃ® Trials.
The idea is that you compete in all the different disciplines. And you must do them all on one bike.
Points will be awarded for each discipline. All your points will be deducted if you donÃt compete in a discipline. ThereÃll be trophies for winners and lots of spot prizes given out to other competitors and Ã¬have-a-go heroesÃ®.
DonÃt be put off by the word Ã¬TrialsÃ®. This eventÃs Classic Trials discipline wonÃt involve leaping up large boulders or hopping around on your back wheel. ItÃll be much more doable by mortals on regular bikes. ItÃll still be quite tricksy riding but more about about balance and control than leaping about on or off things.
The Classic Trials and Downhill will take place on the Saturday, the XC stuff will take place on the Sunday.
The 2009 Singletrack Classic Weekender will be hosted at the Adrenaline GatewayÃs Lee Quarry, Lancashire.
WeÃre still working out exactly how much the entry fee will be but weÃre aiming for sub-Â£30. This will get you entry into all three discplines, and also cover your camping and car parking. Hopefully weÃll be able to do a Ã¬kids go freeÃ® for any under-16s that want to give it a go too.
WeÃll let you know when weÃve worked it all out and youÃre able to enter.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
No trials at BBB? I was hoping for some; I’ve even sent me wig and gown off to be cleaned.
‘And we, of the STW Massive, hereby sentence you to death, for the heinous crime of riding a fixie with stupid short handlebars’.
‘But M’Lud, the defendant is surely innocent, as his freehub had seized’
‘Not in my book he’s not; I don’t like his face. Take him to the place of execution, whereupon he shall be battered with chains and Bombers until he be dead.’Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
This sounds like good fun and could well co-incide with me, bike and camping equipment being back in the UK. Other competitors I hasten to add really have nothing to fear if I enter. I take it people can enter for fun, even if they are pretty rubbish compared to the standard level of biking ability?Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
Ah right – as it would be great for the social side of things and to meet people but the sound of DH scares me silly and I would probably have to take it slowly, never actually having had 2 wheels in the air as of yet, and the sound of trails is the sound of enormous amounts of dabbing. I’d obviously try my best but you know, wouldnt say I have much in the way of balance. Just my happy go lucky XC riding where occasionally I manage not to get lost
