TORQ in your Sleep

It’s that time of the year again. Yes, time for the fastest-growing endure on the UK MTB event circuit, TORQ in your Sleep in association with Gorrick.

From humble beginnings, this event has grown since conception 4 years ago into a bit of a monster and its popularity has to be in no small part down to the quality of the course. Gorrick’s Paul Howard works tirelessly every year to make the trail flow beautifully and to be fair, he has some pretty good geology to start off with anyway. Of course our sponsorship makes a huge difference too! Every entrant will be getting a guarana-loaded banoffee gel at sign on and we have some great prizes up for grabs too.

The 12:12 TORQ in your Sleep enduro – remember the start times – 12 noon to 12 midnight is on Sunday 28th August 2011. Minley Manor is just minutes from the M3 at junction 4A and the course will cover an 8 mile figure of 8 circuit of heathland, beech woods, pine forest and open parkland.

TORQ are the headline sponsors and it will be everything that you expect from us and more! Plenty of trade stands, music, catering all weekend by Quaver, hot showers, free camping all weekend for those of you who want to chill before or after the event from noon on Saturday right through to 2pm on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon.

You can ride Solo, as part of a Pair or a Team. Most of the race will be during daylight but powerful lights suitable for riding off road at night will of course be required from about 8pm till midnight. Competitors must be aged over 16 years.
