2022 Round 1 – Gisburn Grassroots weekend

  • 02/04/2022 - 03/04/2022
  • 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

DESCRIPTION :

As is tradition the series opens at Gisburn forest, starting as close to Easter we can. A great enduro to ease you into the series. Popular with novice racers to experience the enduro format. Expect trail centre stages along with a selection of off piste sections. 

Saturday 2nd April will see a fully trail centre 3 stage enduro for women and kids (age 8+); with an event modelled around the very successful “Hopetech Women” enduro’s we ran in conjunction with Hope for 2017/8/9 but now open for girls as young as 8 as well as novice boys ages 8-16. We will use the same 3 stages we have always used for the HTW, the “fast” kids, and the full-enduro ladies can still do the main 5 stage Enduro on the Sunday – open to ages 11+. £42.50

Later on Saturday afternoon, the youngest get their shot at glory, with ages 2-10 on a 1 stage mashup that’s FREE to enter (27 berms trail not too far from HQ). We trialled this type of event in 2019 at Kirroughtree and it was an amazing success, it was scheduled for Gisburn 2020 too but alas the ol’rona spoiled those plans. Will be great to kick off the season with a day of genuinely grass roots enduro; if you want to gauge its success the overall winner of that kids race was one 10 year old “Katy Kaos” now one of the PMBA Ambassadors, several “big” enduro’s under her belt including 3 EWS Qualifiers and still only 12 years old.

Sunday 3rd April will see the start of the “series” with 2 additional stages from Saturday’s loop, cramming so much into 1 weekend will mean a very busy forest. £52.50

Please be aware that overnight stays will be possible but on the event field only – no overnighting in the main car park as we need all that room for Sunday’s racers. The same rule will apply for Sunday racers arriving Saturday, as well as Saturday racers staying for Sunday. Please be aware this is field parking and in very wet weather may not be available or available only via being towed on/off. Parking fees to the forest will be as normal.

Sign On will be inside the building behind the Cafe in the main Hub area.
Parking is £3 / day / vehicle and payable on entry to the car park – 100% of this goes to the the FC.
