The clocks have now leapt forward and it’s time to plan your spring campaign of Sportives.
We at Wheels in Wheels are constantly trying to improve our events with better routes, mechanical service, and better start and finish locations.
This year we have moved the HQ for the WIW Midland Monster to Uttoxeter Racecourse to improve the parking and route out to the lower peaks, plus brought the event forward a little in the year to Sunday 29th April. We are keeping the 2 routes, 2 feeds and after ride recovery snack along with our detailed routing and full road side mechanical service.
Uttoxeter offers us unlimited FREE parking and we are not restricted to entry numbers as in previous years, but please ensure to get your entry in early.
We have retained over 80% of the original route so not to disappoint our regulars now in its fourth year we are offering an exciting new addition to the event.
Along with Shimano we are offering you a chance to test ride those wheels under the FLY SHIMANO Wheel programme, the wheels are limited so please book early and if we are oversubscribed we will allocate on a ballot the week before. But no one will be disappointed for full details go to LINK
If the Midland Monster isn’t on your list the FOREST of DEAN CLASSIC is a must.
We are pleased to announce that this event will be part of the VITUS-CRC Series for 2012, with many new and exciting additions to the event.
We are MOVING to the New Show Ground on the edge of Monmouth and much better facilities. This year offers car parking on site for 2000 cars all within 500m of the start and finish.
This fortunately doesn’t affect our Traditional route apart from an extra mile there are still 18 climbs.
All finishers will receive a goody bag, recovery meal, and we have again massage services after the ride. Signing on is again available on Saturday afternoon when you can visit the trade village and check the Vitus range.
Vitus will bring their road show, and Shimano will be there to check bikes or test the Ui2 bike, and the full Shimano Test Wheel service will be available, along with our BMW service bike.
We haven’t published our entry list this year as you have the opportunity to WIN a pair of Shimano C24 Dura Ace wheels for the 1000th entry worth over £700 including new Michelin Pro4 tyres.
We will post on Face book progress up dates and will be awarding prizes to every 100th entry received so those entering early will not be disappointed all prizes can be claimed on the day only.
More prizes can be won on our Happy Monday draw just for LIKING THIS PAGE
We hope to see a lot of our regulars plus some new faces at this classic event.
Wheels in Wheels would like to thank all our supporters and please check out some of our new events later in the year, if you like these there is better to come in 2012.
