Cotton Burner Triple Invitational

MTB XC , Nr Bodmin – Wednesday, 23 Jun 2021

Event Summary

Event Overview

Three mountain bike events for the price of one! Played out over three weeks after work on Wednesday evenings, so you can make it a part of your mid week ride. A simple points system allows us to take your best two results out of three in order to calculate a winner at the last event. You have the option of ducking out of your least favourite event but you will forfeit a penalty point if you don't turn up to support, marshall or bring along your skills from civilian life i.e. medical or brewing! The Catch? We wont disclose in what order the weekly events will run until the day. It could be XC or the enduro lines?! (remember back in the day, mate’s racing, when one bike suited all occasions?!). Ethos: I hope you are getting the point that this isn’t meant to be too serious?! It's more about bringing mountain bikers together from all disciplines of our great sport and pastime. Women ride with Men. Be kind. Who knows what kind of hell some of our community might have been through in the past year and half, but lets just concentrate on enjoying ragging bikes around for fun with our mates. This is not a year to be taking it too seriously.  Whether you are a racing snake, gnarly downhiller, trail rider or social rider, this will provide you with a unique and fun experience in an otherwise closed to the public woodland located in the foothills of the Great Grogley Downs, Camel Valley (just off the Camel Trail).  You must be 18 or over. No Dogs / pets permitted at Cotton Wood. Enduro: Test your line choices over the three timed gravity fed downhill lines. (Maybe a little bit of peddling!) XCO: The classic XC 3.6KM loop designed to test the best or just enjoy the riverside course on this private woodland nature reserve. Fear not downhillers, this will last no longer than 45minutes! XC Eliminator: Fast and furious, multiple laps - Riders go head to head trying pick the best lines over a 1.2KM xc sprint course. Don't be last going over the line on each lap....you will be.... ELIMINATED! DIRECTIONS: Ride the Camel Trail and exit at Grogley Halt and follow signs towards Cotton Wood, Directly opposite Grogley on the road to Nanstallon. More details on the Facebook page.

About the Event

Info for Riders

IMPORTANT: NO PARKING AT COTTON WOOD, AT THE ENTRANCE TO GROGLEY OR ON THE ROAD. POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED IF YOU DO AND WE WILL KNOW!! As with previous years, we've been working with Forestry England to try promote cycling to Grogley, Bishops and Hustyns via the Camel Trail. Please try to cycle to this event. If you do have to drive because you are coming from further afield, we suggest Dunmere at the Borough Arms (They sell beer don't you know(!) and is only 2.5km away), and at the head of the trail at Wadebridge (3.5km away from Cotton Wood). Come off the trail at Grogley Halt, turn left out onto the road and follow the signs. There is limited space at Polbrock and Grogley Halt is still closed. Do park responsibly and DON'T PARK ON THE ROAD. Please be mindful of the local residence, and do give them a cheery socially distant hello if you see them.
