The End2End teaser race on 31 August takes on some of the End2End route. It is point to point race starting at the bottom of the Barnel climb in Patrick, then its down the new sweeping single track of Arrasey Plantation before heading up the infamous rocky climb known as ‘the pipeline’, but unlike the End2End we will be climbing all the way to the top through Glen Rushen Plantation. Crossing the main road, with marshal assistance, it’s a brief run down Bayr ny Skeddan aka the Whiskey run, and into the tricky blue dot trail of Cringle Plantation, after which it’s fire road blast through Corlea and South Barrule plantations, before heading down the man made track to the finish at South Barrule car park. 

 

Sign on will take place at South Barrule car park from 0800 till 0845.  All competitors are to ride to the start line for a 0930 start at the bottom of Barnel. This should take about 20 minutes and is not part of the race so please ride safely and obey normal rules of the road.  

 

Please enter online to help the organiser with less paper work in the morning and this saves you money rather than entering on the day which is £20.  If pre entered and paying on the day please have the correct money £15.

 

MARSHALS ARE REQUIRED.  If you can help please send me a text with you name so I can add you to the list. 473368.  This race is also part of the Black Grace Cowley series so anyone in this series still needing to marshal and not a mountain biker it an easy way to get you marshalling points.

 

Any questions please give me a call or text.  Thanks Scott Morgan MMBC
