The event is once again held at the world class facilities of Walters Arena. Here you’ll experience a world of terrains that an average riding experience cannot deliver. The event will range from Qualifying which includes a speed test plus an extreme test and 2 full Extreme races on Sunday am & pm races approx 10 miles.
This is a solo event to find the 'King or Queen of the Valleys' rider. Each rider can push themselves to the limit to test their metal.
Our course will be signed with numerical number markers to indicate a rough idea where you are on the course from the start line and will be numbered from one to fifteen accordingly (dependent on course length). This will aide you whilst riding for notifying marshals of breakdowns or accidents / injuries. Please remember to help your fellow riders should you see an incident and need to report it.
During the course of the weekend there will be an information point which will operate as a central communications point. If you have any queries about any aspect of the event this will be the place to direct your question or query.
Some of the obvious questions we get asked cover the following:
Whilst every care is taken in fencing off the pits and riding areas, the use of bikes and equipment is constant on the site. Every care should be taken to look after your children. However should you lose a child or find a child that is lost, please go directly to the Information Point. Here they will radio all officials and inform them of the missing child. Parents of the missing child please go directly to the Information Point to raise the issue or collect your child. Safety is always paramount. Please be aware that parents / guardians are solely responsible for their children's safety, supervision and behaviour at all times.
We provide several bins spaced around the site, but we respectfully ask you to leave your rubbish in the bins provided and should they become full, please take it home. This necessitates a quicker cleanup on the following day for the team and helps keep costs down. We appreciate your understanding.
