The ACU British Extreme Enduro Championship. 2nd round. Cowm Quarry,
Whitworth. Lancs With just a few days to go until the second Eddy's Xtreme of the season
entries are still arriving. Following a great outing at Tong, Wayne Braybrook
has bit the bullet and entered into the pro class once again where he will
join David Knight and Jonny Walker, Jonno Richardson, Billy Bolt, Ben
Hemmingway and Gary Daniels. Also on the entry list but missing from Tong is
Paul Bolton, Richardson's Eurotek teammate, who always puts on a good show
wherever he rides.
Cowm is a very technical venue and the trials boys should be able to put on a
great show but with Knighter on top form Walker and company will have to be on
their game if they are planning on beating him.
Walker's win at the MX24 Ales Trem Extreme in France a couple of weeks ago
will have boosted his confidence and he will be looking for his second extreme
win of the season at Cowm while Billy Bolt now has an international under his
belt and is definitely getting the hang of things.
Signing on for the event is open on Saturday to try and ease congestion on
Sunday morning, so if you are planning to walk the course on Saturday, sign on
at the same time.
Cowm is shaping up to be a spectacular event but don't forget, there is an Off
Road Legends training day on Saturday 6th February in memory of Ross Hall, a
great competitor who is sadly missed, with all proceeds going to his family.
That should be worth a look, even if you aren't riding it.
Entrance prices to the Sunday event are: Adults £10, Under 16's and OAPs £5
and under 5's free with no charge for parking.
Postcode for the venue is OL12 8XG. For more info go to www.fasteddyracing.com

Up- Grade - 7th February 2016 Waterston race track is the closest we have to an all-weather track the
soil is made up of a very sandy soil so it dries incredible well. The only
sticking point has been the entrance and therefore we have planned a new track
entrance for the venue and so there is no need to change venues for this
The New track entrance for Waterston, that we are working on is to create a
better and safer entrance by scraping away the top soil and depositing 13 tons
of crushed stone with the use of a 3 ton digger. We should therefore be able
to sort out this pinch point and make everyones day a lot easier!
Thanks to everyone for their patience in getting 2016 season started.
Waterstone Ridge is a cracking track, we only need a couple of dry days to
make this happen.
We have also been working a way behind the scenes and have more than enough
great venues lined up for you all in the next three months.
Waterston Ridge is on the outskirts of Dorchester Closest Post code is DT2 7SL You Tube view of the track
Track n Trail Freeride ,Waterstone Ridge Nr Dorchester 11,10,2015
We are hoping for a four Mile track made up of Maize stubble fields, some
grass fields and a small section of woodland. If the weather allows we will
bring in a digger to create a fun and flowing MX track with small jumps, some
manmade berms and whatever else we dream up. Also we will be aiming to build a
small Enduro cross track for those riders who would like something a bit more
technical for the weekend.
