A lot of guys off there will already know Nick Tonks and his bike servicing business Pedal worx. Not a lot of you will know that his lovely wife, Leanne. At the beginning of last year she was diagnosed with cancer, something that does effect a lot of people unfortunately. Thankfully she is doing well and on the mend now. At the time Nick ended up organising a charity race day at the bull track with great success with everything saying the same thing of "I had so much fun, with we could do it again", lucky for you he has!

The format is quiet simple, use a course that readable by all abilities but fun and fast enough for the bigger boys, get as many people involved, race and have fun.

Course preview but there will be some changed, the dropoff will not be used, nor the gap jump

Please people: Entering online vastly reduces the amount of time you would normally spend registering on the day. It also makes for a much more streamlined event, where we are able to get the admin out of the way prior to the event, so we can concentrate on the important things on Race day and make it a kick ass event for you, the riders.

It also means that Mikro-Time has the rider details prior to the event and doesn't have to correlate this information on race day, which can lead to a later race start time and typo errors.
We implemented the online booking to enable us to run a more efficient, streamlined operation to ensure riders get the most bang for their buck and have 3 timed runs.

We aim to make our race series one of the best grass roots racing events.

They have 68+ signed up already on the first day for sign ups.

I went last year, a proper nice vibe no pressure on for the race just cool to hang out.
