Peebles CC Youth Stage Race Weekend 8th/9th September

Peebles Cycling Club are organising a weekend of youth racing at Glentress Forest on 8th and 9th of September.

The club aims to repeat the phenomenal success of the previous years award winning events, a truly grass roots experience open to all young riders who want a taste of racing in a friendly exciting atmosphere. The stage race is open to riders from 6 to 16 years of age (age on 8th Sept 2012), riding one bike for all five stages. There will be prizes for all riders.

The event will be held within Glentress Forest, racing on a mixture of man made trails, fire roads and natural sections. Day one will consist of three stages, a cross country race followed by a hill climb and finally a downhill race. On day two the riders will compete in an individual time-trial and finish off in the afternoon on the fast and furious dirt crit circuit. All circuits will be closed to the public for the short duration of the races.

The event will be run from the Buzzards Nest car park where registration and bike checks will take place.

All races will be set at a level appropriate for the age categories and lots of encouragment and support will be given to every rider.

Please note that there are NO entries on the day!
