There will be camping either onsite or right next door.

This event sounds great and I'm pretty certain I'll be entering however, I don't understand how BA12 isn't labelled as being in the south west, I'm pretty sure I won't win but still thats besides the point, the south west includes all of Cornwall, devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset and Gloucestershire.  I'm proud to say I'm from the South West, I know this isn't your ruling and I'm not having a go at you, it is british cycling just being arses so I'll be having words with them.

This race is going to be good fun and I'll be trying to get some of my club members to get along to it too.

Cheers, Ben.

I agree with you ben. As how can some of bath be in the south west and others not. BCF logic is sometimes confusing, but they probably get the info from the post office and have no say in it either :(
We would have many more riders if the area went just a little further up.
Are you at uni in plymouth? As if you are and you stay in plymouth then by definition you are from Plymouth in the eyes of the council tax Gits.
Cheers ben, Chaz.

Right then gang, if we get enough people book up early enough and commit to camping, I will be going to organize a short night race on the first 2 sections of HSD or maybe even track 4.
We are in the process of trying to sort camping right on site at Gawton, if it is pulled off then the weekend will be fricking awesome.
Practice saturday day, Possible night race on HSD or T4 Saturday night, Camping Saturday night and the main event on Sunday. Not to mention all uplifted!

Pretty crazy that Cheddar (South and West of Bath) BA5 is not included as being in the SOUTH West either. Shame.

Never mind, sounds bangin', count me in!

Hi gang,
For anyone who has not noticed yet, The online entries close on the 12th of August.
This dead line will probably get extended as per usual as everyone leaves it till the last minute.

We need as many of you who intend on entering to do so on or before the 12th so we have a chance
of making the uplift good and smooth for you all " We need to know the entry numbers early".

If you all leave it till the last minute to enter then the uplift might not have the capacity to get you all up
the hill smoothly and quickly on the practice day, So you will loose out on important practice runs.
And you will need the Practice runs as some of the track might be getting some new lines put in here and there, who knows  ;)
