TOUGH ONE 2019
Entries have been open and coming in steady for a few weeks for the World-famous event but last week they where removed from the world of the internet whilst some big changes took place …. causing a stir with riders messaging in to WOR HQ asking, how do they enter and where has the event entry forms gone?? WELL…………
A few years ago, in fact a long time ago, back in 2010 The Tough One had a
feature in the timetable of the day called the "Hot Lap" …This had
the Pro riders do a timed to the second, individual lap of an extreme loop
round the Famous Nantmawr Quarry. This sorted the qualifying start places on
the grid out for the Pro's starting order…Simple as that .
Some behinds the scenes logistics recently, have accelerated the progress of the MICHELIN TOUGH ONE EXTREME Enduro evolving…
So…. Steve and his WOR team are pleased and very excited to announce a mahoosive shake up and change to the event format for all Riders… The event now becomes the MICHELIN TOUGH ONE EXTERME ENDURO TT (time trial)
Same date, Same venue, same track type layout (smaller lap though) but due to the 2 bikes per minute accessing the course, this will allow for some gorgeous changes and modifications to the famous and iconic Nantmawr Quarry T1 Track. Spectators will be in for a treat. The riders should enjoy a lot more and the dulcet tones of Jack Burnicle will have lots more action to talk and shout out about to fans and spectators.
The event will cater for the Sportsman/Novice, Clubman and Vets in the
Morning session, Followed by the Afternoon main event for the Experts and PRO
riders, With David Knight and Graham Jarvis already confirmed, Steve Ireland
will be confirming more top riders very soon..Danny McCanney and Joe Wootton
where seen chatting with Steve at the recent Dirt Bike show ..Expect them
A special end to the day and proper treat for the Spectators will be
"The DASH FOR CASH" ...The top 6 pro riders on the day from the
results of the TT will then go on to face one another in a 2 or 3 lap Race to
finish the event off and win a fist full of dollars for their efforts.
Rider numbers are limited for the morning event and Afternoon event due to the nature of the new format.
It's all looking very exciting, fresh and new BUT this well-known saying from the event still applies…"Are You Tough Enough" …
