2014 UKGE Round 5. Grisedale Forest, Lake District
The curtain falls on another spectacular season of enduro racing. The fifth and final round of the UK Gravity Enduro series took place on the weekend of the 6th and 7th of September. It might have been a combination of the weather, end of season emotions running high, over consumption of alcohol or just straight up rad trails but round five seemed the best of the year to me. Read on to find out what went down.
The venue was untested at any previous UK Gravity Enduro but didn’t disappoint. Located at the Forestry Centre at Grisedale, we had a handful of facilities on offer, including clean toilets that meant the portaloo gauntlet didn’t have to be run with a hangover on Monday morning. The five stages we were treated to had been prepared by a grand old bunch of volunteers in the weeks leading up to the event. Fine weather most of the weekend meant the newest additions to the trail network held strong and didn’t turn in to a mud and rut fe…
With weather and scenes surpassing last year’s round 3 at Hamsterley Forest, the Twelve50 Bikes Race Team headed south to Afan for this year’s third round of the UKGE race series. Al’s injured knee kept him side-lined once more and due to his operation earlier in the year, Rick had no entry and stayed behind to run the shop. Thankfully Rick did tune in and provide constructive criticism via Facebook once the dust had settled. And what dust there was
Having raced at Afan in sub-zero temperatures in last year’s series, the preconceptions were settled weeks before we arrived. This was going to be a pedal-y, dull, physical and to be honest, tedious affair compared to the white knuckle ride of Inners last month. To be clear; it was pedal-y, and man alive was it physical. This was a big loop in the baking sun. Dull and tedious it was not. The trail centre hard pack was packed HARD and hard meant fast and loose. Add to that the freshly cut stage four, that dropped from the top o…
2014 UKGE Round 2. Innerleithen, Scotland 8:55. Excellent, time to fit in a brew before Ross arrives to load the van. Matt’s at the shop early to swap his Maxxis tyres. Weather forecast’s looking grim, go for the Minion mate. Get that Ardent Race outta there.
Packed and rolling, round two here we come. Apparently Russ and Co arrived yesterday and set the pits up, all Ross and I need to do today is turn up and ride bikes. In the mean time, the traffics flowing nicely so lets kick back, tune in to Radio Two and get up to speed with the local election results. Rock and roll baby.
13:30. Twelve50 towers is standing proud but looking quiet as we roll in to the arena. Time to relax and realign my life with pushbikes for another weekend of racing. The usual friendly faces are floating around, busying themselves setting up gazebos and living quarters for the next three days. The cogs of the UKGE machine, quiet since Ae last month, are whirring back to life.
UK Gravity Enduro Round 1
13th April 2014
9 team members, 2 podiums , 5 great stages, 6 beer can chickens, 2 Weber barbeques and 4 WAGs. Those were the magic numbers for the opening round of the 2014 UK Gravity Enduro Series, Ae Forest, Scotland.
A trip north of the border so early in the year left unsettled nerves as to what the weather gods might smite us with. The fears were unfounded though as, with the exception of a couple of showers and some strong winds (that helped to dry the wet ground), conditions were near ideal. In fact, looking at some of the early photos that are emerging, those that didn’t attend would be forgiven for thinking we had a weekend of sun and blue skies!
The winds did cause some havoc across the pits on Saturday with more than one gazebo getting airborne, landing in a crumpled heap of plastic and metal. The Billy Can seemed to have it worst than most with double flying gazebos and dodgy generators to contend with. They continued to turn out thei…
