The series brings together established venues such as Thetford Forest and Tunstall Forest alongside exciting newer courses, so whether you like free flowing trails or a tighter, more technical circuit, there is something for everyone.

With the feedback we received on last years series we have made some changes to the categories and the start procedures.
For 2012 the Warrior category has be renamed as the Open category for both male and female riders. The Open category is aimed at those new to racing and those of us who have other commitments on a Sunday. The Open race will last approximately 1 hour with a race start of 10am.
We have added both a Junior (17 to 18 years) and a Master (30 to 39 years) categories, both male and female, after listening to feedback and the growing demand for these categories.
We are pleased to retain the support from Chelmer Cycles and Health Muscle and Fitness and welcome a new sponsor in Human Performance Unit (Essex University). We expect to announce new sponsors in the coming weeks and together we believe we can continue to improve and grow MSG into one of the best regional MTB series in the country!
