Well done everyone!! Thank you for making the 6th edition of 12:12 such a superb event. Thank you too to our very supportive and generous sponsors. Now the dust has quite literally settled having been dampened down by Monday's rain we hope you're relaxing at home viewing the Results which can be accessed via the link above.

The 8 mile race course was different yet again to previous years showing the versatility Minley Manor can offer. I'm sure riders will be talking about some notable sections for months to come; Banksey is always fun - split into two this time, Back to Front - the long descent from the top Sunset Wood field is a blast, and as for Sponge Bob Climb? What a killer; "like riding on a mattress", "little devils pulling at my tyres", "my hardtail suddenly gained rear suspension", just some of the comments I heard.
Racing was hard fought in all the categories as both teams and solos showed some outstanding lap times and consistency as you'll see from the results. The vibe on the course was excellent with lot's of banter, friendly overtaking and the sounds of the Bridge to Nowhere disco to lighten the mood. From all at Gorrick, the Army CU and the event sponsors we thank you and look forward to welcoming you back to "lucky TORQ 7" in 2015.

Whose brilliant idea was it to hold a Monkey in the Summer? In contrast to the winter enduro held here back in December when conditions were very wintery it was an absolute joy to cruise round bone dry dusty trails. Not a Brassy Monkey in sight...

The Flowerpots Inn at Cheriton near the South Downs in Hampshire played host to our second TrailTrax Navigator of 2014. 150 riders enjoyed a superb sunny day of riding on hardpacked trails. There were a higher number of clearances than usual so maybe Sid has gone a bit soft you and made it too easy...

Whatever distance you chose to ride the Kawasaki Enduro is always a challenge. The course building team had somehow managed to intertwine 10 miles of glorious fun trails into Windmill Hill and Porridgepot Hill, with what felt like far more descending than climbing - how did they do that...?
