As you will know by now if you were pre-entered and have received your email
with a full explanation and a choice of entry options, we have had to
postpone Round 1 of the Merida Brass Monkeys Series.
Round 1 will now be Sunday 18 December, Sunday 8 January will be Round 2 and another Round will be added in the New Year to complete the Series.

We like to think that our events are always very welcoming and over the
years many riders and their supporters have become our friends. Daran

our sympathies are with Daran and his family. He was a lovely character and
will be missed.

If you want to keep riding through the winter Gorrick organises the Brass Monkeys Enduros which are a short lap offroad race, more info here...
Area 51 near Tunnel Hill was the venue for Round 1 of the Autumn Classics. The venue has only been used twice before and is quickly establishing itself as a fun but tough course to race. The hills may seem short but they're steep punchy little numbers, and the singletrack is unrelenting in a flowy twisty turny fashion...
