Free Ride - Fresh New track for Track n Trail - Track n Trail and our
riders have been invited to run a Enduro practice day at this fantastic track
un-used by us before. This absolutely cracking venue has an incredible diverse
mix of terrain including shallow stony stream beds and woodland areas which
makes the track so exciting. It also incorporates a grassy, hilly old school
motocross track with an abundance of character including natural jumps. This
race track will stretch over 3 miles of stunning Gloustershire countryside.
For our regular riders this track is a bit outside our usual area, but do not
let this put you off as I can guarantee you that it is worth the journey. It’s
situated North of Bath, postcode GL12 8NS.
We’re really chuffed to be asked by Steve to ride here at Wickwar, a track
that many of the riders will know as it’s been used by Mercian and Midwest
in the past for Hare and Hounds racing. The track has undergone a huge number
of improvements from the hardworking landowners and friends over the last
year, so we’re very excited to be able to host another outstanding Freeride
event here on Sunday, April 27th.
Please note payment will be taken on the day £30 members and £33 non
Run under ACU guidelines. Any tyre. Noise limit 94db
You can get a glimpse of what the track will be like on this video made by
Matt Ridgway via this link: Video

Dorchester. Start times: Adult -10:30am. Youth-2:00pm
HERE FOR CALENDAR FOR FULL LISTINGS
Race entries will open after our Thorncombe Race on Sunday May 18th
Tenko is a unique track, you’ll be ducking in and out of flowing woodland
sections with sand, jumps and meandering paths. The gravelly and sandy terrain
will make the track quite technical, so keep your wits about you. This track
will be bigger and better than the previous track at our Freeride day for your
pleasure of riding further.
We’ve tagged this track “The Ultimate Jungle Track” because it was used
by the BBC to film the TV series Tenko back in the 80’s as it looks similar
to the Japanese jungle!
There is a YouTube clip from last year’s Tenko up on our website. Check it
out on our website. It’s the second video on the rotator screen. Enjoy!
