I would like to thank everyone that has made it possible to run the ESES, the sponsors Lauf, Nextie, Creative Cycling and Southern Ecological Solutions and also the members of Travers Bikes Cycling Club and Hadleigh MTB Club for providing the marshals for the event.
Race Venue: There is plenty of parking in the main carpark along the hardpack field, Please do not park near the caravans as people are here on holiday. There will be toilets but no catering facilities.
Directions: The postcode for the race is SS4 1PL, the actual postcode takes you to the main house on the estate. The carpark entrance is a further 100m up the road in the Hockley direction. There will be a banner outside to clearly mark it.
On the day: Each rider must sign-on in the “Travers Bikes gazebo” before riding on the course. You will need a number attached to your bike before being let on and obviously a helmet. If you rode the first round please use this number, you will still need to sign on.

The main senior race will start at 19:00 and the under 16”s at 19:02, both races will be an hour plus a lap, you will receive the bell when the lead rider has crossed the line once the hour is complete.
