Round 2 ESES is in just 2 weeks! It will be at Hadleigh Park on Tuesday 9th. Don't worry its not that scary...for the next round there won't actually be any of the features in it! that's not to say its going to be easy...you think you know the courses! I guarantee there will be some tracks and lines that most of you won't have ridden before.

These are the results of the round 1 of the Essex Summer Evening series 2017. The first round was a night race held in Potash Woods.
I had 5 mins spare and had a proper look at the ESES Trophies from Custom Medal Hangers. Really impressed, quality! Although not titanium!
Get your entries in for a chance to win one!
Big shout out to under 16 females, I have a shelf full of trophies from previous years where we didn't get enough rider entries to make a podium! There is no minimum amount you need to enter, come and have a go!

This years jersey....
What is it?
GO-MTB is basically where you just turn up and take part at an event, you don't need a license or insurance (it's part of the entry fee). There are no points for the races, it's just a bit of fun. Many people in the race event won't have raced before. You need to be over 16 to enter the event.
Novice races are basically the same thing but for under 16's, turn up, give it a try, have some fun.
Sounds great but a bit scary!
Everyone is in it together, the GO-MTB and Novice race will be held before the main event, so it will just be you out there. The whole idea is to give people a chance to try the sport or to try racing in a more relaxed environment without the faster riders around.
when is the next event
The Next GO-MTB/Novice event is the Potash Spring Classic on the 16th April. The GO-MTB/Novice race will take place before the main event. You will be given training from 09:00-10:45 before your event which starts at 10:45 and will last 30 mins. Training is included in the price of the entry fee, just £15 for adults and £10 for Under 16's.
okay, say I get the bug, anymore events planned?
Indeedy, 2 days later is the start of the ESES (Essex Summer Evening Series). The course will be the same as used for the Potash Spring Classic but will run in the opposite direction. The ESES will be a night race but don't worry the GO-MTB/Novice race will be run in the light (no need for lights).
And after that?
You can join in the main ESES races, you will have had a chance to see the main race and it isn't really that scary, it quickly spreads out and you can ride at your own speed. You need to be 14 years old or older to take part in the ESES.
Lets do this...what do I need?
First off you need to enter the Potash Spring Classic GO-MTB or Novice race.
ESES (Essex Summer Evening Series) Provisional dates.
For the first time the series will feature a British Cycling GO-MTB event. This is open to all ages and is designed to to give people a taste of racing in a more relaxed environment. This will be run on the same course as the main event but will be completely separate (the GO-MTB race will start and finish before the main event).
The GO-MTB event will be held on Tuesday 18th April 2017 before the night race. The GO-MTB event will be run in the light and you will not need lights. I will release more information in a couple of weeks on the TraversBikes.com website.
If you cant make the ESES I will also be holding a GO-MTB race before the Potash Spring Classic on Sunday the 23rd April 2017.
