Gorrick Spring Series R3 with added Skedaddle
by Jane Lucas, 22 Feb 13.
So, hot on the heels of our Tunnel Hill season opener, the Spring Series moves on to Crowthorne Wood, Crowthorne, Berks RG45 6AR Venue map link. Always a fun and sociable event with some amazing viewing spots near to the finish, there’ll be a great course using the best of what is on offer there with some Gorricky tweaks. As usual there will be full facilities including trade stands.
This event has added Skedaddle as we will be giving out not 1 but 2 mtb holidays from our headline sponsor Saddle Skedaddle who have a new brochure out (available at Race Registration) and are leading the way in innovative cycling holidays.
There are lots more Series points to be won, and those of you who have already gained Series points will be gridded on the start line. Remember, you need to take part in at least 3 events out of 4 to be a Series contender to win one of the great Series trophies from our sponsor Four4th Lights. Experts riders will, as usual, be competing for prize money which will be carried over and awarded to the Series winners.
If you enjoy Crowthorne Wood, then Mountain Trax our number sponsor have an MTB Demo Day there with some great bikes to try out on Saturday 9 March. Looks good to us, and full details are at www.mountain-trax.com
You can pre-enter this event online until the evening of Tuesday 26 February, which means that you can then go straight to the Entry Express stand (at Event Registration) on the day to collect your number. Please remember to bring your receipt with you if you do so. Otherwise, you can always enter on the day, as usual. Full details on www.gorrick.com and pre-event updates are on Twitter and Facebook .
