For those of you who havent ridden the series before, rather than giving out the prizes to the fastest riders (Winners in each category get a jersey and top 3 get trophies) we feel that everyone deserves to get the chance of winning a prize. Every rider/marshal and helper will get a free ice cream after their race has finished (just hand in your helmet tag) even if you dont want an ice cream hand in your helmet tag because they will be used as your draw ticket. You have a chance to win one of the prizes below.
Thanks to the support of Squirt Cycling Products who have given us lots of products from across their range, traversbikes.com (me...I distribute NEXTIE, Garbaruk Bike Components and kLite.com.au in the UK)
List of prizes, Set of Nextie 29er carbon rims, Squirt lube, sealant etc, Travers bobble hat, bottles etc, Garbaruk 10-50 XD cassette, kLite dynamo and light.
Epic Custom Kit are supporting the Travers MTB Series again and supplying the winners jerseys for the Mens Elite, L1, L2, Womens Elite, L1 and Male/Female Youth and Juvenile categories. They look stunning, the colours are really vibrant, quality bit of kit! If you are looking for your club/teams jerseys for next season or have a sponsored ride or event to do give Darren a call.
The winners t-shirts have arrived for the winners of the Under 7/9/12 male and female categories. Thanks to our sponsors Nextie, Epic Orange, Datalynx, Parenesis and Squirt lube.
Everyone should now have received their race info for round 1, if not you can download it from the link below, see you Sunday!
Quick Update: League 1 Mens Round 1 is now full and the Elite, L2 have 2 spots left. Fantastic entry numbers for the women's race with 8 in the Elite and 18 in L1 (round 1)!
There are still places left in the other rounds if you enter individual rounds but the series entry is now closed for Mens L1.
We have created a new path around the outside of the woods on the far side and as you can see the wildlife have already started to use it and bed the trail in nicely for us. Also as you can see from the recent storms there are a number of trees down that we will clear over the next couple of weeks.
The new Finishers Medal for the Under 7,9,12s
Each round you will add a new element until (hopefully) they are all full!
The medals are made from 89% recycled PETg material and I know some of the riders slept in theirs last year so I have added a element to the ribbon that will easily pull apart.
I have created a poster to promote the U7,9,12s race. It would be great if people could help get these put up in schools, shops etc in the local area. Thanks
Thanks to our sponsors of the Travers MTB Series here is a snake peak at the new Series Winners Jersey.
Just 2 1/2 months to go and the races are filling up quickly. Some of the mens categories are approaching full! so dont leave it to the last moment (none of last years top 3 have entered!)
Its amazing to see 21 riders in the adult female categories! it should be a very competitive series.
The U12/9/7 races are also filling up with 21 riders in the U12 alone. In the next week I will release the new finishers medal and a promotional poster for anyone who wants to help promote the kids series in youth clubs schools etc.
Big shout out to Parenesis Ltd. and DataLynx Limited for their sponsorship allowing us to continue offering the free U12/9/7 races in 2022
