There's now less than a month to go to this year's SPAM Biking Erlestoke Twelve on 26th May 2012.
Things are taking shape nicely with a great course, a wide range of prizes and some great facilities, all ready for the day.
Last year's course was well received and we got some great feedback. However, rather than rest on our laurels we've been out adding some new sections to make it even better. It'll be a 7 mile loop, all off road and consisting of nearly 50% technical woodland single track.
We have sponsorship from Charge Bikes, Four4th Lights, Mule Bar, Giro and Red Bull, all of whom will be providing great prizes and facilities. This year we decided to give some of the main prizes as spot prizes so that people that never make the podium (most of us), have a chance of picking up a big prize.
Our catering is also top notch. We have Colonel Grumpy's coffee bus serving up quality Guatemalan beans and anecdotes in the most characterful location you could imagine. On the food front we have Ian Luff's Luff Bus (You may know Ian from the famous Drop Off CafÈ at Glyncorrwg, which he used to run).
Red Bull will be providing a chill out area and their DJ Car to keep the party going all day. See video below:
There will be three events running during the day. A six hour starting at Midday, a 12 hour starting at Midday and a 6 hour starting at 6pm. There are a variety of categories within each event so take your pick. We've also kept our entry fees low and feel that the event offers great value.
Entry on the day will be available so if you fancy just turning up it won't be a problem.
