Inevent are delighted to confirm that with the support of Exposure Lights they will be hosting the UK 24 hour solo championships in 2017 - at Pivot Twentyfour12.
This year's champs will take place at the Exposure sponsored Relentless 24 at the Nevis Range on October 29, and it's fitting that the 2017 instalment will be on another venue with World Cup pedigree.
Pivot Twentyfour12 organiser Martyn Salt from Inevent:
'We’re delighted to secure this event for 2017. We have been talking to the guys at No Fuss about bringing the solos here for a while and with the support of our wonderful sponsors we will be offering a £2k cash prize fund for the top 5 men and women. All 24 hour soloists are guaranteed trackside camping at Newnham and we believe the champs will really add something to our event package. We have about 3000 staying onsite at our event and with enhanced timing visibility the crowd are really going to get behind the solo battle - particularly when all the 12 hour riders are finished! Exposure have backed our event for 11 years and already offer a great service to our riders so thanks to them for going the extra mile next year and bringing in Ultimate Components to help make this bigger and better'
The Champs will be part of the Pivot Twentyfour12 weekend which is now firmly established as one of the top off road events in the country, entries are open for 2017 with 12 and 24 hour solo categories already over 60% sold out.
Frazer Coupland from No Fuss says:
'No Fuss are delighted to see the UK championships being hosted at the PivotTwentyfour12 in 2017, a change of venue will further reflect the growth in interest of this type of racing. With the return of the WEMBO championships to Fort William in 2018 it seemed like the perfect opportunity for the UK champs to move to Newnham Park'
Pivot Twentyfour12 offers a unique family friendly package with up to 4 nights camping on offer, kid’s races, entertainment, great facilities and a course that never disappoints. The event is also sponsored by Topeak, Mitas Tyres, Clif Bar, Dartmoor Brewery and takes place from July 28-30 2017.
