Gorrick Exposure 100 - Results and Photographs
A worthwhile week of hard work went into improving drainage on the race trails and by all accounts it paid off judging by the lack of "bogginess". Yes a few puddles were to be encountered but given the amount of rain leading upto Sunday many riders were surprised at just how well all the trails were riding. All the categories were well supported with the Enduro format creating a wide mix of rider ability; from the weekend warriors and newbie's determined to challenge themselves, to the enduro specialists who pounded repeatable lap times at great speed. Well done to you all.
Our best wishes go out to the riders involved in accidents that required medical attention, we hope you make good and swift recoveries. Also in attendance were the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance accepting charitable donations. They were very pleased with your generous donations which Gorrick will be adding to.
For those not in the know, the trails used for the race and in fact the whole of Swinley Forest are owned by the Crown Estate and designated Private Land. To ride here other than when taking part in one of our licensed events requires a cycling permit. These can be purchased online or from local bike shops. They are £25 annually and the money goes toward 3rd party liability insurance and trail maintenance.
