Mille Maglia endurance gravel
Great little event on open trails in Suffolk with 50/75 and 100km. Nice mix of road and gravel run by Mille Maglia 19th Feb www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/276460/Mille-Maglia-GravelOff-Road-Sportive
Crank it have two races in the SE in 2023
2 day gravel/MTB event over at the Hadleigh MTB 2012 Olympic track on the 22/23rd April and the Twisted Oak Classic in Suffolk on the 19th March.
2023 looks like it is going to be another cracking season, entries opened just 24hrs ago and the numbers are up on 2022.
We have introduced a few new ideas for this year mainly the fun category, after all the whole idea is to encourage new people into the sport. There will be a fun category in both the mens and women race, the women fun riders will ride with the other womens categories, the mens fun has been split off into a seperate race along with L2. This should help everyone, the Elite/L1 race will have riders of similar ability which means it should take much longer for the front riders to catch and lap the backmarkers, the L2/fun riders also ride with similar ability riders without the worry of the faster riders catching and passing them.
The U7,9,12 Youth/Juvenile and womens Elite/L1/Fun have no limit on rider numbers...with the help and amazing work kevin darragh has been doing encourage women into the sport we would love to break our current race entry record of 32 last year and break 50 this year.
The mens races all have a strict limit of 50 riders per category. So if you intended to ride individual round enter earlier as the series entries is filling up quickly.
