Midweek MTB Madness - Lee Quarry, Rossendale

MTB XC , Bacup – Wednesday, 11 May 2022

Event Summary

Event Overview

Race for Grassroots - from beginners to experienced riders

Youth and Juvenile £8 advance entry fee 

£15 advance for Junior and Adults.

NO ENTRY ON THE DAY, NO LATE ENTRIES ACCEPTED
This is because the races this year will use electronic timing - meaning faster results and accurate times for you all, but a slight increase on costs and hence entry fees, and events close for new entries a week before, so that timer files can be prepared.


The Tarty Bikes Time Attack is a new Trials MTB event by Tarty Bikes aimed at all riders of any skill level. Riders must complete the course from A to B in the fastest time possible against the clock, passing through marked gates on the course. You'll have to negotiate some tricky obstacles on the course using all your balance and bike handling skill. Riders will be ranked from first to last based on their time across the line, but **only riders who complete the course and pass through all the gates without putting their foot down can qualify for the podium!  Riders will be able to start any time they choose from the time the course opens (5:30pm) and 5 mins before it closes at around 9pm (light permitting). One rider will be permitted on the course at a time, taking between around 30-50 seconds to complete the course.

About the Event

Info for Riders

Youths - born 2006 - 2007 - in year of 15th or 16th birthday


Juveniles - born 2008-2009 - in year of 13th or 14th birthday


Youths and juveniles have a separate start whistle and race for a shorter period of time as per the guidelines for xc racing, but they are on the same tracks as the main field of riders. Our youth and juvenile category therefore need to be experienced, confident riders and racers as they ride in with the main field. If you are unsure of your child’s suitability for this event, please contact the organiser or the midweekMTBmadness facebook page. 

Don’t prejudge the pace of these youngsters, they ride fast but their race is shorter (around 40 minutes) – remember that if you are trying to keep up with them!
