Gorrick Gravity Trail Enduro - Sunday 22 April

The Gorrick Team were looking at their great, unique, little venue at Frimley Green and thought 'Why not use the hill for a Gravity Trail Enduro?'  So they checked out some local and regional events, rechecked the venue and gave it the green light...

What is a Gravity Trail Enduro?

A gravity fed, Sport Ident timed race event.  A race but not in the XC enduro sense as you will not be competing shoulder to shoulder, this is you versus the course.  It is also not a pure downhill event, so there'll be no gnarly, steep descents or massive drop offs.  It's a circuit of the venue which includes a number of times trail stages, so you won't need a special bike with loads of travel either, just bring what you have and enjoy it.  You'll be helped on your way by a good old gravity, but you will still have to pedal a bit.  What's not to like?

What is the event?

From the Start riders are dispatched in groups at intervals.  The event is made up of a number of short trail stages, ridden against the clock, linked together with non-timed sections.  There are categories to suit all levels of ability and age.  You ride all of the sections, in any order, over the circuits specified.  You can ride in a group, with a specific group of friends or on your own, whichever you prefer, as all the stages are open throughout the day up until the Finish time.

You get an opportunity to view the stages before the event, but you will not be able to pre-ride.  We use electronic timing from Sport Ident, so you will have a transponder to carry with you and beams to pass through at the start and finish of each stage.  Riders will complete 3 circuits and after each circuit you can return to the Arena to download your times.  Marshals will be on hand at each section to ensure sensible gapping to suit rider requirements.  All stage times will be added together to give riders an overall result.  At this event a helmet must be worn at all times and gloves, eye protection and pads are recommended.

The Venue?

Area 51 is a great venue for a Gravity Trail Enduro because no part is flat and it has a great hill, allowing a variety of sections to flow from the ridge line.  The whole area is open mixed woodland and heathland, well draining with good parking on fire breaks and within the woods.  It is particularly good for viewing the stages from, so you can follow the progress of your friends or family at the event.  Cheering and banter is, of course, an essential part of these events!  The Arena has full catering all day, Event Registration, the Event control Centre, timing marquee, results screen, Start & Finish points, trade stands, toilets and a paramedic ambulance.  Sorry, there's no overnight camping available at the venue.

How do I enter?

The event is limited to 180 riders and is entered by pre-entry only on this web site.  Entry will close as soon as it is full and there will be absolutely no entry on the day.  In the week before the event you will receive a pre-event information email from the Gorrick Team and then you will just need to check in at Registration on the day which will be open from 8am to 9.45am.
