The riders benefited from cool weather whilst out, with the sun making an appearance at 1.30pm in time for the prize giving. We have a few clearances in the solo categories, and one of the best pair scores we have seen for a long time. The Flower Pots were excellent once again, laying on a BBQ and their favourite beers for the happy riders. Full results download via the link above, and series results update is here.

The revamped Barley Mow at Tilford hosted the second TrailTrax Navigation event of the year. Conditions were favourable as always in this picturesque Surrey village as riders negotiated the challenges of the many bridleways, byways and sandy commons the area has to offer. Dave Brothers (an ex-local who knows the land intimately) laid out the checkpoints. He cleverly placed the venue in the upper most North East corner bringing land into play not used before as far as Bramshott. So get a high or clearance score required a good deal of new navigation and a fair amount of climbing. I wonder how much ascent the winners did? Let us know on the Facebook thread. Full results are now up.
Round 3 is just a month away on the 7th August at Cheriton on the South Downs.
The 5.6 mile course gradually wound it's way up to the high point of Caesar's Camp where plenty of fun trails were awaiting. The highlight of this venue is always the long descent returning toward the arena and yet again it was great fun with a mix of jumps, drops and fabulous flowing singletrack. Our resident photographer Kevin Sheldrake nestled down below one of the drops to catch your moments of airtime, lookout for the link to his photos soon.
There was plenty of racing to be had in all categories as the 2hr riders started the day early to get home before lunch and Fathers Day celebrations. Leaving the 3, 4 and 6hr riders to continue on into a sunny afternoon, perfect race conditions with a dry track. You can review all your lap times and final positions via the Results link above. Gorrick is grateful for all the support from our sponsors, and Merida and Four4th Lights for the large prize pool.
Our next race event is always the biggest of the year - 12:12 TORQ in your Sleep on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Please get your entries in now. Don't forget in addition to the main 12 hour race is the 6 hour option, plus Childrens Events on Saturday.
