Did I mention Prizes? Monkey Wrench Cycles is sponsoring the race series with loads of prizes to be given out randomly
This COGS Race Series have been set up such that likeminded people can ride a course that has a few challenges that they would ride with their friends on a weekend ride.
This course does have a few technical sections as well as downhill sections that need to be ridden sensibly within a rider’s capability such that we all return home after the race without serious injury. Triple arrows will be placed indicating the technical sections but please ride within your capabilities as there are no prizes for axing yourself or coming first.
All riders need to ensure that they feel comfortable riding this sort of terrain because this is the type of course that we organisers will be setting during the race series, hence the 15+ minimum age. There are other races being held catering for mainstream riders with timing which may be better suited to some riders.
