Yet again the Gorrick Team excelled themselves to create a 4.6 mile lap that introduced trails old and new...

Merida Brass Monkeys R3 Frimley Green - Results and Photographs

by Paul Howard, 17 Jan 16. Results [  ] Photos [ 1» ]

Finally, a proper Brassy Monkey, with a light dusting of snow. The long awaited New Year Hangover race finally took place at "Area 51", a new venue thanks to a local landowner. The trail building team had done an amazing job readying a course that although it only measured 4.5 miles was suitably challenging and average speeds were somewhat slower than usual. There was so much fun flowing singletrack that really kept you on your toes. As sections bedded in some just got better and others just got slippery with 100's of tyres and gradual snow melt.

All the final Series podium presentations were made and we'll have a full list of winners to follow soon. Our grateful thanks as ever to Merida Bikes for the wealth of prizes, Four4th Lights for the trophies, and all the other sponsors for making these events happen. Later in the week the final series points will be published so see how you fared overall. Kevin Sheldrakes photos are now online. Thanks to all the riders for supporting the Brass Monkeys, because without you crazy fools it wouldn't happen. See you on the 7th February for Round 1 of the Spring Series, entry is open.

Our apologies, but after working at the venue today, we have had to make the very difficult decision to postpone Merida Brass Monkeys 3 until SUNDAY 17 January. It's not a decision that we've taken lightly but, in our experience, with the large amount of (universally) predicted rain due to fall from now until Sunday afternoon we don't think riders will have a quality riding experience and we don't want to cause any damage to the venue either. The event will go ahead exactly as planned but on Sunday 17 January instead, so if you are entered you still are. We're sorry, but even with the postponement, we're unlikely to be able to take any more entries. We're all gutted and apologise once again for any disappointment that this causes.

Merida Brass Monkeys 3 - REVISED VENUE - Pre-entry only

by Jane Lucas, 22 Dec 15.

Round 3 of the Merida Brass Monkeys Enduro will now be held at a NEW VENUE one that we have been looking to secure for a while, but recent issues have meant that we have brought forward its launch. The compact, but beautifully formed course near Frimley Green Surrey, will as ever, be carefully set and prepared by our very experienced team. You can expect to go through heath and pine woodland with flowing and testing singletrack mixed with climbs and descents...
