Merida Brass Monkeys – Series Info
|Welcome to the Merida Brass Monkeys Winter ENDURO SERIES 2013, a four event Series brought to you by Gorrick and the Army, featuring some outstanding venues chosen for their suitability for enduro mountain bike racing and their natural beauty. All the venues have the very best course features that we know you demand, like fast flowing singletrack interspersed with fire track and mixed with enough technical sections to keep you on your toes. The courses won’t be the same as last year, as we are always seeking to improve them and we listen to riders’ suggestions, in order to give you the very best riding experience that we can. Endurance racing gives all riders a chance to shine. You just chose how long you want to ride for and then do as many laps as you can. When the course closes you just complete the lap that you are doing before finishing. Whether you are a sprinter or a slogger, a good strategy, careful pacing and a little pre-event preparation will always give you a satisfying result. Race to win or race to finish, either way whatever your ability or fitness you can enjoy these events.All venues are easy to access and the Facilities at each round will include:
After the event you can check out the results and photographs on the event page for each round. Riders new to our events will always receive a warm welcome and if you have a question that we haven’t answered on the website please get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org

PLEASE NOTE - These events attract a large number of riders from across the south of England and beyond, so to ensure that everyone enjoys their race, we have capped numbers at 500.
